Real quick because i'm curios when they “Batman The Animated Series” Do they mean Batman: The Animated Series circa 1992 or another one i don't know about?

Good question. As far as I know, the only Batman cartoon they have is Batman Beyond, meaning that unless they've aired the Return of the Joker movie, the only Joker to vote on would be Caesar Romero in the old Adam West BIFF POW ZOWIE Batman.

On top of that, all the Joe and TF characters will blur in votes from their G1/ARAH incarnations, much like the various Batmen...which is so confusing that I'll have to vote for Jem by default.

Optimus ain't doing so well in this vote. However, Megatron practically kicked Baroness's ass. I voted twice for him. :grin:

The ones I'd pick:

Heroes - Batman (Optimus is the worst character in thew show)
Friends - Pinkamena Diane Pie (Nuff said 8) )
Villains - Discord (dude is Q as a chimera. THAT. IS. AWESOME!)
Meanies - dunno (don't watch any of those)

Yes. it's been on the Hub since September 6. No, I'm not confusing it with either Adam West's Batman or Batman Beyond (both of which are also on the Hub). The hub has a total of three Batman shows.

Guess I hadn't been paying attention; I had no idea they had Batman TAS.

If they can air so many shows owned by Warner, it's starting to seem strange that they're not airing the original Hanna Barbara Pound Puppies cartoon. Were the old MLP and Strawberry Shortcake by by HB too?

Can't say about the old SSC, but MLP G1 was definitely Hasbro. I lump it, Transformers G1, GI Joe, Inhumanoids and Jem and the Holograms into one semi-connected canon.

While the rest I can understand, I don't see how MLP G1 fits in. What's the connection (besides the scrapped idea from MLP G1 movie)?

Not really, not that it matters. This is my fanon. I'm not forcing it on anyone. And again, it doesn't contradict anything from the other shows to include it. Therefore, I do.

Yeah. In the first episode one of the Pegasi, Firefly, crosses over the rainbow-literally-and meets up with Megan SAVIOR OF WORLDS!!!!!!. And a few episodes later we meet her little brother Danny and little sister Molly.

So, it's set in another dimension or something?

How much do we get to see of Earth in that show?

Probably the best way to describe it. As for Earth... the ponies go to get Megan to help them with their eldrich abominations of the week in the first few episodes, but all we really see is around a stable and horses. My little 'pony' after all. But the vast majority of the time is in Ponyland and Dream Valley. For specifics, I direct you to here. Have fun storming the index! ;)
