Look out, Gotham, here comes Bat Thumb!

My family really enjoyed The Dark Knight, which we saw at 10:00 am on Saturday. The movie deserved all of its many accolades.

We prepared for the film by re-watching Batman Begins the week before. However, if you truly want to get into the mood for the latest Batman movie, you should watch Bat Thumb, a half-hour film made by Steve Oedekerk in 2001.

You can buy Bat Thumb on its own, or you can get All Thumbs: The Complete Collection. That’s what we have. (All are available from Netflix.)

The best of the series is Thumb Wars. You’ll love the zany adventures of Luke Groundrunner, Princess Bunhead, Oobedoob Scoobydooby Benubi, Black Helmet Man, Gabba the Butt, and of course the mischevious astro-droid Beep-Boop-Beep.
