Arnold Lobel’s Frog and Toad Are Friends With Batman and Joker



If you’re anywhere close to my age, you probably grew up with the Frog and Toad books, and may now be reading them again to your own children – it was through them that I first remember encountering the subject of “will power,” something that held me in good stead for many years of being dateless.

I assume Harry Bauer is close to my age, as, in reading these books to his son, he added in Batman and the Joker (and has even drawn them on top of the original pictures) along with his best impersonations of Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy. It’s not exactly Bat-canon, but, well…if you’ll excuse me, I think something’s in my eye.

About Author

Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.) Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
