  • I prefer the suave Powers Boothe voiced Grodd as opposed to this one, though the guttaral growling voice does make sense given that he is a gorilla
  • I know next to nothing about Kamandi, so there was no previous interest in the character
  • He's not boring, but at the same time I don't really see the appeal

      Grodd travels to the future, where a great disaster has left the world in control of evolved anthropomorphic animals: gorillas, tigers, snakes, bears etc. How Grodd knew about this, I don’t know, but it doesn’t matter.

      Batman follows him in an attempt to stop him. In an inverse of the usual set up, it’s technology from the past that’s more advanced as the weapons of the day have regressed to swords, spears, and clubs.

      Grodd’s a bit of a ham in this show.


      He proudly announces his name when the future gorillas ask him who he is, as if that will be of any use. The general even points out that the name means nothing to him. Grodd challenges the general for command and quickly wins. For a military leader, you’d think he’d have better combat skills.

      Batman teams up with Kamandi, a young boy who’s trying to free the enslaved humans, in order to stop Grodd from conquering the Earth.

      There’s one scene where they ...


      • return to the batcave. They make a clever nod to Man-bat having a whole race of them in addition to the other animals. They even kept the name, bat-cave.

        This episode’s ok. It’s not stellar, but it is entertaining for a half hour. I prefer the suave Powers Boothe voiced Grodd as opposed to this one, though the guttaral growling voice does make sense given that he is a gorilla. I know next to nothing about Kamandi, so there was no

        previous interest in the character. He’s not boring, but at the same time I don’t really see the appeal. The story worked for one episode.

        As it turns out, the intro I mentioned in another review actually came before this and this episode was his second trip to the post Great Disaster future (maybe that’s how Grodd knew about it?). He also does return to the past at the end, which contradicts my thought that he remained in the future even after the episode ended.
