EDITOR'S OPINIONHappy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Bat-Mite, while he originated from the late 70's Filmation series of "New Adventures of Batman" he ended up being one of Batman's most unusual allies. While Bat-Mite seems to be Batman's answer to Superman's Mr. Mxyzptlk (only a lot friendlier but rather accident prone).
And speaking of that aforementioned Filmation series he was voiced by the company's co-finder Lou Scheimer. While Lou didn't use his Orko voice Bat-Mite was a bit of a prototype to the aforementioned He-Man character. Lou's Bat-Mite does indeed fit Bat-Mite's well meaning but rather accident prone presence in the show.
Bat-Mite didn't appear in animation again until the 90's when he had a brief cameo as an animatronic in the highly renowned Batman the Animated series as he was voiced by Patrick Fraley. While it was Pat did do a suitable goofy high voice that did suit that little shout out to that certain late 70's Bat man series.
In Batman Brave and the Bold it is one big intentionally goofy homage to Silver Age DC comics so it was only natural that Bat-Mite would make an appearance this time being voiced by renowned actor Paul "Pee Wee Herman" Reubens. While I admit Paul's choice of Bat-Mite voice was a bit more moderate than I thought it would (but the show probably avoided trying to make Bat Mite really sound like Pee Wee Herman) but still it did work and Paul Reuben's performance was indeed solid.
Overall I am not quite sure as all 3 of these of performances do definitely work for the role.
