Okay, I'm just getting this out there but...who wants to bet that Tawny Young (the talk show host) is basically a "Return of Black Adam"-esque version of Tawky Tawny (a magical talking shape-shifting tiger awaiting the one who will inherit the Wizard's powers), and she is a media personality so she might be able to find that one, and when they introduce SHAZAM she'll play a major role and reveal her true tiger form?

Apparently she is a completely separate character in the comics (she covered John Stewart's wedding to Katma Tui).

Yeah, I realized it after I made the post....but then I also realized, THIS IS HARLEY QUINN!!! ANYTHING can happen!!! They probably want us to think it's one character but it's in fact ANOTHER character with the same name!

No, Schumacker has admitted that they love looking for very obscure characters like her or Praxis and using them on the show.

But, it could still be the same thing. Like they WANT to bring our defenses down into thinking it's the obscure Tawny Young when they pull off a HUGE twist, and that it's in fact the SEMI-obscure Tawky Tawny! Again, they share the same names so they could take advantage of that whole thing.

Doubt it, unless Mary Marvel is introduced as a regular or semi-regular character.

In the analysis of Season 1 Ep. 8-10, Schumacker revealed a couple things including,
-Their original take on Aquaman was a macho surfer type not unlike Momoa, some recording was done, they got a note back asking if he was too asinine. So they looked back and decided to go with the regal Fraiser approach.
-The LOD headquarters was based on high end ad firms, Schumacker even worked in some, and his parents are in the marketing industry
-Justin Halpern did the screeches for Sy's sister but was later replaced by LaMarr. Halpern also does Man Bat's screeches
-Aquaman's dolphin Juba is named after a stuffed animal owned by Schumacker's daughter
-The still shots of the various acts of terror in the LOD initiation video were supposed to be inspired by classic comic book covers
-In an upcoming season 2 episode, they considered doing a recap in the style of William Dozier on Batman'66 but decided it should be Frank the Plant doing the monologue.

Why Mary Marvel? Why not the other members of the SHAZAM family?
Them too, but Harley Quinn is very much a female-led show. By the way, just what are the other members of the Marvel Family being called these days in their costumed identities? Is Mary now Mary Shazam? Shazam-Girl? What about CMJ?

I heard that she's now Lady Shazam, but what I heard was quite possibly just fan speculation and not fact.

Yeah, I don't need to see animated Aquaman instantly shift into acting like Momoa for movie synergy :p.

I love Frank, but I would have loved a Batman '66 type recap :).

Yeah, I don't think they have really worked out what the Marvel Family codenames are now :confused:.

Yeah, maybe if it was more like Nachos Batman on The Brave and The Bold or the Dude on Big Lebowski, perhaps, but I liked how underwater regal Fraiser played off the cast and LOD.

It could have worked for "Batman's Back, Man" or another Batman-centric episode if there is one.

It's looking like Mary is now Lady Shazam, while Freddy is now Shazam Jr. It's just not the same. *sigh*

I think it's pretty clear at this point this show is suppose to be a parody of DC lore. So the creative team taking all these creative liberties actually kind'a makes sense from a meta perspective.

Did they steal the Invisible Jet :ack:?

I recognize Nora Fries but who's the other lady? And why would Nora even go with the women who inadvertantly got her husband killed and whom she barely knows :confused:?

Those are some tough and regal looking Amazons. I'm guessing the prominent one is Hippolyta :).

That lady with the tattered black look seems to be Strife from the Brian Azzarello/Cliff Chiang WW run:

what happened to Nostalgialodeon twitter user? Now it shows as twitter account doesn't exist

Bella/Big from Polly Pocket reminds me of Big Barda from DC Superhero Girls 2015, being a physically strong character who's initially antagonistic before becoming a friend to the main characters, and showing a softer side. Rhona Rees even seems to channel a voice similar to Misty Lee. I know Shea Fontana developed both shows, but still.

I’m hoping the first Madagascar movie finally airs on Nickelodeon this year. They’ve only played the sequels so far.
