Sometimes it's good to be the GreatLakesGeek. Like when you get to preview a new Warner Bros Batman Animation.

A new Batman: The Brave & The Bold episode, "Mayhem of the Music Meister!," airs next Friday, October 23, at 7:30 p.m. on the Cartoon Network.

Supported by a 28-member orchestra assembled on the famous Eastwood scoring stage at Warner Bros., special guest-star Neil Patrick Harris voices the Music Meister - Batman's newest villain who is able to exert powerful mind-control through song.

Let's face it. For many of us, our first exposure to opera came from the Bugs Bunny classics. This episode has great color and animation but the sound is really impressive. In fact, the soundtrack will be available after airdate on Amazon, iTunes, etc.

The Music Meister controls both heroes and villains when his voice hits a certain pitch. He makes them sing and dance and do his bidding.

It's not your typical Batman episode. It even has a romatic component (with canary). Kind of like Batman on Broadway.
