A representative for Teletoon has informed The World’s Finest that Batman: The Brave and The Bold is slated to premiere on Sunday, January 11th, 2009 at 9:00am (ET) on the Canadian animation network. Batman: The Brave and The Bold will kick off its run on Teletoon with the episode “The Rise of the Blue Beetle,” with new episodes to follow every Sunday in the 9:00am (ET) timeslot. The official description for the series is as follows, as seen below.
Building on the iconic character of Batman, this latest interpretation of the classic Batman franchise finds Batman teaming up with heroes from across the DC Comics Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventure with a touch of comic relief in this new animated series.
Light in tone, Batman: The Brave and the Bold will introduce younger viewers to a famed hero while still offering plenty to excite diehard fans–the visual style of the series has been inspired by the look and feel of the work of 40s and 50s classic comic book Batman artists. Fans of all ages will cheer the caped crusader as he battles crime and injustice.
Best of all, Batman isnt going at it alone! Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and countless others will get a chance to uphold justice alongside him. Though still based in Gotham City, the Caped Crusader will frequently find himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman will still rely on his stealth, resourcefulness and limitless supply of cool gadgets to bring justice home!

On top of premiering the new Batman: The Brave and The Bold, Teletoon will also continue to air reruns of the popular The Batman animated series Monday to Friday at 5:30pm (ET) beginning January 5th, 2009.
