For those who don't who Bat-Mite is, here's info about this little guy:
Bat-Mite is a little human-like imp from the 5th dimission, and he claims to be Batman's greatest fan.
Unlike Mr. Mxyzptlk (that annoying oompa-loompa from Superman), Bat-Mite does try to help Batman and Robin most of the time, though some of his help back-fires at him (than again that's his imp-enstints that are aburden to Bat-Mite's nature).
In other words, he was the inspiration for Larry from "Teen Titans," except more mild-mannered and sane.
Whether you hate him or not, Bat-Mite is still staying in the Batman and DC Universe (even if he's used for issues that need to lighten up a bit from the drama), because Bob Kane (the comics' creator) actually likes him, and Bat-Mite actually has fans that love him (about 98% of them are female).
Besides, he is funny and "mitey" cute!
#01. The Classic Comic version: Bat-Mite first appeared in DC Issue #227, and he was quite a chubby little thing back then.
#02. "The New Batman Adventures" (1978) version: This version of Bat-Mite is different from his comic-book counter-part (guess why).
However, that version of Bat-Mite is a bit more tamer, and is more of a tag-a-long for the Dynamic Duo.
He kind of reminds me of Calumon from "Digimon Tamers-" Cute, mischivous, happy-go-lucky, loves to have fun, and has a lot of child-like charms.^^
But the down side of this one, this that almost everyone treats him like garbage and don't even trust him to help (poor baby
#03. The BTA Series version: The reason why this Bat-Mite is smaller, it's because that's not the real Bat-Mite.
It's a toy version of him, and a REALLy life-like and advanced one!
The Navi-sized, winged (yes, the toy's cape is actaully a pair of wings) only appeared briefly in one episode of BTA, long with toy-versions of other minor DC characters just for a wink to the audience.
#04. "The Brave and the Bold" version: Now the real Bat-Mite returned to the Batman universe, the only thing that's about him, is that he's sort of portrayed as a troll-like fanboy of Batman.
Can't blame him for that, after the way they treated him in the 70's and not even being an official character in the 90's cartoon, and since he was brought back in this series, he finally gets the other characters a piece of mind for they'd done to him in the past.
The only actually problems I had with this version of Bat-Mite is his catchphrase and the choice of voice-actor for him.
I mean really? "Awesome-sauce"? Come on writers! That phrase is not memorable or catchy like "Cowabunga," "Booyah," or even "Bazinga."
"Kick-ass" would've been a much better catchphrase (screw the censors!).
As for Paul Ruebens (aka Pee-Wee Herman) doing Bat-Mite's voice, he didn't put enough spunk put into Bat-Mite's personality.
#5. My version: "Aww, like at him! Ain't he a doll?"
My take on Bat-Mite has more of a cartoony-look to fit his personality a little more.
He's cocky and devious, yet smart and powerful; a bit sadist and saracastic, yet light-hearted, loyal, and sympathedic (at moments).
As for my pick for his voice, I choose Quinton Flynn (the English-dubbed voices for Kon from "Bleach" and Axel/Lea from "Kingdom Hearts", and Timon in "Timon and Pumbaa's Wild Adventures" ).
Bat-Mite belongs to DC Comics and Warner Bros.
