Batman: The Brave & The Bold Humor

Came across some interesting clips of Warner Bros Animation's current Dark Knight series, Batman: The Brave & The Bold. Seems like the production team have been trying to create some humor stories that are headlined by Batmite, Batman's biggest fan who happens to be a magical imp.
First up is a story parodying the 1970's New Scooby-Doo Movies that teamed up popular TV personalities with the Mystery INC. gang. Set in 'modern' times, the short features Scooby-Doo, Batman & Weird Al Yankovic(?).

Next is a parody of Daffy Duck's classic cartoon "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery" with Duck Tracy... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_7vZCb_2ss&feature=related
You can see the writers were trying their best to be funny but the stories themselves fall flat with stiff animation, bad acting and a poor music score. At least they're trying.
