Batman Creator Bob Kane's COURAGEOUS CAT To Get Film Adaptation

Movieby Joey Paur

Back in the 1960s, Batman creator Bob Kane created an animated series called Courageous Cat. The rights to it have been acquired by Ever Media Group so that they can adapt it into a live-action CG animated hybrid film. The plan is to take the characters and build a new mythology around it.

I'm not familiar with the cartoon at all, but Kane created it as a parody of his earlier Batman work, and here's a more detailed description of what this series was about...

In the animated series, the pair are anthropomorphic animal superheroes without secret identities (the green-eyed caped crimefighter and his squeaky-voiced companion are usually addressed as simply "Courageous" and "Minute") who live in the Cat Cave and, when summoned via the Cat Signal over their television set, race to the scene of the crime in their sleekly feline red Cat Mobile which can convert into both the extendable-winged Cat Plane and submersible Cat Boat and thwart the criminal plots of various villains who threaten Empire City

Although they fought many miscreants the duo's recurring archenemy who appeared in nearly every episode was known as Chauncey "Flat-Face" Frog.

It's interesting that someone wants to turn this into a feature. It's not like it has a huge built in audience, but maybe it will end up being fun. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Do you think this could be a fun project?
