Cartoon Network on “The Greatest Story Never Told”: “The Justice League is in an epic battle with Mordru in downtown Metropolis, but the real story is what happens to Booster Gold while he’s supposed to be on ‘crowd control’ (courtesy of The World’s Finest).”
Dan Riba on “The Greatest Story Never Told”: “It was a pretty funny script. You can’t make the same show over and over again. Ironically, this show has more destruction and more impending doom than most episodes. If you just keep having heavy shows, the drama starts losing its weight (courtesy of ToyFare Magazine).”
Bruce Timm on “The Greatest Story Never Told”: “There are no more all-out comedic episodes this season…or next, for that matter. That there were three comedies this early on in the season is the result of a series of flukes more than anything else—it’s too complicated to go into detail here, but here’s a tiny for instance: the Booster Gold story started out as a ‘straight’ Firestorm story.
"[Also], when we were breaking the Booster Gold story, we did realize that it was becoming structurally similar to ‘The Zeppo’ (and also similar to Rozencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead) and made sure to find ways to make it different from those two pieces (courtesy of Toon Zone).”
Dwayne McDuffie on “The Greatest Story Never Told”: [“The Greatest Story Never Told” is] based on Rozencrantz and Gildenstern Are Dead, a play where the events of Hamlet are shown through the eyes of two minor characters. [Also], Mordru took out [Dr. Fate, Etrigan, and Zatanna] before the League was even called in (courtesy of DwayneMcDuffie.com).”
