Animated World of DC Comics: Krypto, the Superdog (2005)

Someone at WB thought it might be a good idea to give Krypto, the Superdog his own series, back in 2005, and gear the series for younger viewers.

Krypto debuted on Cartoon Network as a weekday entry in March 2005, and was picked up by Kids' WB! 18 months later. The idea was that Superman left Krypto in the care of an ordinary Earth boy. By the same token, Streaky, who was associated with Supergirl in the comics back in the day, was similarly given a home on Earth, giving Krypto a sidekick who was largely used as comedy relief. We'd also see Ace, the Bat-Hound, and Isis, Catwoman's pet. There would also be pet analogs of villains like Lex Luthor, the Joker, and the Penguin, to give Krypto his own Rogues' Gallery.

If you can get past the goofy theme song,  and enjoy the show, you'll get a few laughs and leave with a smile on your face. Currently, the series is airing on Boomerang.

Rating: B+.

We should take Krypto The Superdog, and put him in Mortal Kombat.

Implausible, save for fan-fiction. Something that, if you haven't already done so, you should try, Steven.

There was a Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe game, in case you didn't know.
