What Happens When Four Super Friends Retire?
So what happens when our favorite super friends become too old to fight crime and save the world from evil doers? When they reach that golden age, ripe for retirement? In the video below, four of them keep in touch and get into shenanigans of their own. Hmm, this sounds familiar. Take a look:
Yes! The Super Friends become the Super Golden Friends! Taking a page from the Golden Girls, Batman is Dorothy (Bea Arthur), Aquaman is Rose (Betty White), Superman is Blanche (Rue McClanahan), and Robin is Sophia (Estelle Getty)!
This video was posted by YouTube user kevinbappdotcom on Jul 7, 2012. How this went relatively unnoticed until now is beyond us. According to the description on YouTube, this video was originally conceived to be an idea for a pilot on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, “… if I knew anyone who worked there, and if all the licenses could be obtained.”
Of all the bizarre cartoons on Adult Swim’s lineup, this could be a good fit. It would be an even better fit if Birdman: Attorney at Law and Sealab 2021 were still popular. Either way, now I feel like watching Golden Girls. What do you guys think?
