Wake Up to Action Next Week

Grab those rabbit ears, Booster boosters! It looks like Cartoon Network will finally be airing the final 6 Justice League Action episodes next week.

New episodes should air every day next week at 6:15AM Eastern/Pacific, but we've got our eyes out for two in particular. Per the episode synopses reported by SupermanHomepage.com:

“Watchtower Tours”
Monday, May 7 at 6:15 a.m. (ET/PT)
When Booster Gold starts to secretly give tours of the Watchtower to make some extra cash, he inadvertently brings in a super villain disguised as a tourist.

“She Wore Red Velvet”
Saturday, May 12 at 6:15 a.m. (ET/PT)
When Booster and the JLA come under attack by a mysterious and unrelenting new villainess known as Red Velvet, Booster comes to realize she’s actually the fiance he left at the altar in the future.

Dedicated Boosterholics may already be aware that these "new" JLAction episodes have been released overseas and via the Cartoon Network app, but this is the first time they will be coming to American televisions.

I already have my alarm clock set!

Saturday Morning Cartoons Golden Again

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment issued a press release earlier this month to tell the world that Justice League Action would be coming to DVD this October. The first release will be "Season 1 Part 1" and contain the first 26 episodes of the series.

While this is great news for any fan of fun television, beware that Booster Gold appears in only one of those episodes, "Night of the Bat" (the third episode of the series). Presumably we'll have to wait for next year's "Season 1 Part 2" to get the superb "Time Out." But we don't have to wait that long for more Booster Gold.

Tomorrow, Cartoon Network will air the Justice League Action episode "Booster's Gold" for the first time in America. The episode synopsis at CartoonNetwork.com reads "Green Arrow becomes involved with Booster Gold when he discovers that the self-centered superhero has brought dinosaurs back from the past for a money-making venture." Oooh. Count me in.

The episode was written by show producer Jim Krieg and Jake Castorena, director of "Time Out," does the same for "Booster's Gold." So I think we can expect good things.

You Can't Always Get What You Want

So you're still happy, even without Booster, huh?

Last week's poll question: More than six months in, how satisfied are you with Rebirth overall? (59 votes)

More than six months in, how satisfied are you with <em>Rebirth</em> overall?

Generally speaking, I do think that the Rebirth DC Universe is an improvement over what came before. That said, I'll never be satisfied until I get my Booster Gold back.

On an unrelated note, for those of you like me who missed Booster Gold in the Justice League Action debut in December, TV Guide tells me that Cartoon Network is scheduled to rerun the episode "Night of the Bat" tomorrow morning at 7:30 AM Eastern. Don't miss it twice!

Back in Action

Justice League Action debuted on Cartoon Network on Friday in a four-part "Shazam Slam" special. Unexpectedly, Booster Gold got in on the action!

Booster played a small role in episode 3, "Night of the Bat," where he is used exclusively as comic relief. (There's even a quick "Gold's Gym" visual pun.) Diedrich Bader's portrayal of Booster sounds a little more Californian than Boosters past. It's very in keeping with Booster's public image as an idiot.

Although Booster doesn't have much to do in this episode, JLA writer Jonathan Callan called the character "a breakout star" on Twitter.com. Booster voice actor Diedrich Bader responded by saying how much he loves playing the character.

I Love Playing Booster!!! @bader_diedrich

Hopefully, this love fest will translate into bigger roles for Booster in future episodes. We'll be watching.

(Special thanks to Bob in Friday's comments for catching Booster's appearance.)

Booster Gold Will Be in on the Action

After I had already posted on Friday, DCComics.com announced the upcoming animated Justice League Action for Cartoon Network. It's great that we'll be getting a new Justice League cartoon, but the news gets better. From their release:

Along with [Kevin] Conroy [as Batman], Cartoon Network have announced that several other beloved DC Animated voice actors will be contributing to the series, including Mark Hamill as the Joker (!!!), James Woods as Lex Luthor, Diedrich Bader as Booster Gold and much more.

What a great way to start February, huh?

We've known Warner Brothers had been working on a new Justice League series since at least September, but DC's announcement is the first indication that Booster Gold would be playing any part — by Batman: Brave and the Bold's Batman, no less!

No news yet on when this series will be aired (there's no telling with Cartoon Network), so we'll have to stay tuned for more news.

(And don't forget: whenever there's breaking Booster Gold news, it will probably be discussed in the Boosterrific Forum before I get it onto the front page. News cycles may move fast in the 21st century, but I still work at 20th-century speeds.)
