Neil Patrick Harris is the Music Meister!

Obviously inspired by the internet sensation known as Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, Neil Patrick Harris has been cast as an all-new villain called The Music Meister for an upcoming episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

Mayhem of the Music Meister, which is set to debut this fall, will be an all musical episode in which the villain, the Music Meister, uses his ability to create song wherever he goes to take over the world! Five new songs have been recently written and recorded by Dynamic Music Partners in LA.

This isn't the first time we've seen musical episodes. Shows like Powerpuff Girls and Clone High did it several years back, and the famous Once More With Feeling episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer sounds like it has a very similar plot. However, I'm sure that this episode will be just as fresh and hilarious as all of those other musical episodes.

I only hope to hear the classic Batman quote "Villains are a superstitious, cowardly lot" sometime in the episode. Do you remember hearing that quote used in the Batman musical in the Batman Beyond episode Out of the Past? If you don't remember that episode, maybe these pictures will jog your memory:

I am looking forward to that episode. Musical episodes always have the potential of being really funny and entertaining. *My personal favorite musical episode for TV show is by far the musical episode of Scrubs*.

i have been watching and reading Batman since the mid 70's. And this is the single greatest batman thing I have ever watched. Now this is also partly because my 2 year old daughter loves the episode and sings all the songs...all the time.
