I love Batman: The Brave and the Bold. It's probably the only non-news television programing I follow right now. Plus, it looks like Black Canary is moving up in the ranks, which is just awesome.

Since the BTBATB is set in the present, but with lots of silver age charecters, I find myself getting lost on occasion. Which on one hand is great, more charecters getting screen time. But usually they give us the benifit of a name drop, so those not familar with groups like "Challengers of the Unknown" can at least wiki or google them.

Today, there was an unamed talking monkey. Luckily, wikipedia has a excelent cast list with who voiced what roles, so I was able to find out that the detective monkey was Detective Chimp. He was created in the '50s, then faded into obsurity until someone dusted him off for "What Ever Happened to Rex the Wonder Dog", then another cameo for Crisis on Infinite Earths, then DC then realized they had a primate detective and he's cameoed in a lot of other things.

Except for Manhunter, which is why I've never heard of him.
