'Super Golden Friends' Reimagines 'Super Friends' As 'Golden Girls' Characters

Posted: Updated:

This week is shaping up to be absolutely golden.

First news broke that the NYC City Council approved over $3 millon in funding for the creation of a residence for homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth that will be named after beloved "Golden Girl" actress and LGBT ally Bea Arthur.

And now we've discovered the brilliant video above that reimagines the superheroes from "Super Friends" as Dorothy, Blanche, Rose and Sophia from the "Golden Girls."

The clip is the creation of art director and designer Kevin Bapp and features fifty-plus versions of Batman, Superman, Aquaman and Robin acting out the sitcom's classic opening sequence.

Bapp notes on YouTube that this is a pilot he'd "like to propose to Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, if [he] knew anyone who worked there, and if all the licenses could be obtained" and we'd like to second that motion. Quick -- someone whip up a Change.org petition!

Below, see a slideshow of LGBT comic book characters:
