🎆 DC Animated Club's Rockin' New Year's Eve Watch-Along: December 31st at 2 PM Pacific/5 PM Eastern 🎆

Greetings @DCAnimatedClub, and to all others who want to ring in the forthcoming new year with some animated flair and :sparkles: snazziness :sparkles:, DC-style!
:dc: :superman: :00_wonder_woman_gold: :0_lc_green_lantern_jessica_cruz1: :0_aquaman: :0_poison_ivy_tas: :batman: :harley_hv_2: :0_flash:

Christmas is just around the corner, but the upcoming holiday fun doesn’t stop there, no it doesn’t!

Check out the invite below for how you can keep the post-Christmas holiday merriment alive and well, partygoers! :partying_face: :batparrot: :dancing_women: :man_dancing:

Who’s invited: You! :slight_smile:

What you’re invited to: A New Year’s Eve Watch-Along party to close 2021 out with, while also simultaneously welcoming in 2022! :confetti_ball: :tada:

Our Guests of Honor shall be Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Young Justice, the Teen Titans and more! :sunglasses:

What we’ll be watching as the year winds down:

  • The New Batman Adventures S1, E1 (labeled on HBO Max as BTAS S3, E1): “Holiday Knights”

  • Young Justice S1, E26: “Auld Acquaintance”

  • Young Justice S2, E1: “Happy New Year”

  • Teen Titans Go! S2, E51: “More of the Same”

Note: We’ll be taking a five minute break between episodes.

In this time, you can get the next episode ready, procure more champagne, adjust your party hat, make some noise, hammer down a glass of The Good Stuff, nibble on something yummy, yoink more of the bubbly and/or just look outside and admire what is hopefully a nice day. :superman_hv_4:

Where and when we’re watching: In this thread and starting at 2 PM Pacific/5 PM Eastern.

Sure, that might be a bit early for a true NYE blast, but we’re all likely going to be busy later in the evening of the 31st, so this is a time that can hopefully work for most, and before they go out to party and dance (“Badly!” as Penguin said in Batman Returns, but I know DCUI members are anything but bad dancers, am I right? Right! :dancer:) the night away.

How to watch the party unfold: The above episodes are available on physical and digital media, while also streaming on HBO Max.

However you choose to pop your NYE party cork :champagne:, please be on-time :clock1: and ready to pop :boom: with the rest of us when its Play Time™. :play_or_pause_button:

That’s your invite to what is a happenin’ blast to say “Buh-bye now!” to 2021 with, all the while saying “Come on in!” to 2022 and its potential for a shining New Year.

Grab your bubbly (@iJest Are you able to handle that? :wink:), party hats and whatever else you need to ring 2021 out and 2022 in with, for this is one party you don’t want to miss! :partying_face: :harley_hv_3: :superman_hv_4:

I’m ready to say goodbye to 2021 :partying_face: Can’t wait to see you all next week! Good episode picks @Vroom :confetti_ball: And speaking of :champagne: I’ve never had it! I’m going on a liquor store trip this week and I’ll see if something grabs me.

Thank you, good sir. I look forward to seeing you at the party (Figaro too, if possible :wink:). :superman_hv_4:

Champagne is…okay. Kind of bland TBH, but its alright.

This hard-drinkin’ partyer (yeah, right :smirk:) always rings in the New Year with sparkling cider. I love it. :hugs:

Figaro is a party cat! He’s always dressed to impress :man_in_tuxedo: And we are both looking forward to it.

At the risk of being awkward I feel I should inform that Jest is not a sir :joy_cat: but do carry on!

It’s good to enjoy what you like! I’m all for that. I recently found out about an alcohol that isn’t ethanol-based, so it’s actually not metabolized into something harmful for your body. It is expensive though so I’ll just be drinking the poison this year. :beverage_box:

:exploding_head: Holy potatoes! I thought you were, like I, a sir.

I humbly apologize and shall refer to you in the future as good…Miss? Lady?

“Good lady” works for me, if it’s cool with you. :slight_smile:

I usually don’t care when people think I’m a dude because it happens on the internet a lot :joy_cat: I slide under the radar. No worries. You can also just call me Jest, lol. No need for honorifics.

Jay Sherman (starring character of TV’s The Critic)-style, when he guest-starred on The Simpsons, as he and Homer were going at it over the last pork chop at dinner?

@Bar-El is loading up a plate of shrimp and says “Yeah…why not?”

Cool! :nerd_face:

stuffs in more shrimp from a hidden reserve, then looks at himself in a mirror

My cheeks are puffed out with shrimp!

Mmmm, nummers. :hugs:

:face_with_hand_over_mouth::rofl: oh man I seriously need a snack you are making me so hungry!

I fail to see how. :smirk:

I’m only talking about fresh, delicious pork chops (applesauce is optional, Peter Brady) and juicy, succulent shrimp from mouthwateringly tasty shrimp cocktails.

How could one get hungry over that? :wink:

SN: Don’t tell Marge, but I think the extra ingredient in her pork chops is salt.

Great scene moment, Gordon and Batman drinking coffee on New Year Day at the diner. :slightly_smiling_face:

Now I would like a cheese steak dinner, sound good. Will Gordon ever beat Batman to give the tip? He got to be as fast as the Flash to do it! :grinning:

It’s the final count down!

@Reaganfan78 Cheese steaks are so good.

We should have some brought in, yeah?

@Bar-El Now you did it. You went and got The Final Countdown stuck in my head.

For that, I thank you. :superman_hv_4:
