Cartoon Network on “The Great Brain Robbery”:  “A mystical accident leads to Lex Luthor and the Flash’s minds being swapped into each other’s bodies (courtesy of The World’s Finest).”

Matt Wayne on "The Great Brain Robbery":  "'The Great Brain Robbery' was my first time scripting an episode from a Dwayne McDuffie outline.  It was fun and easy; a number of the best lines in the finished episode were there before I started.  Half the fun of this episode comes from Michael Rosenbaum and Clancy Brown, the voices of Flash and Luthor.  They really sold the idea of mind-switching (courtesy of [website name removed])."

Bruce Timm on the Flash / Lex Luthor switch:  “I assume [that Tala didn’t register the switch, but Fate did] because Tala’s ‘mystic radar’ is more attuned to ‘supernatural’ beings like Deadman (he is a ghost, after all), or it’s just another case of us bending the superhero rules when it suits us (courtesy of Toon Zone).”

Bruce Timm on double standards:  “I find it very interesting that when Shayera got busy with Carter Hall on the first date [in ‘Shadow of the Hawk’], fans labeled her ‘not very smart’ and ‘slutty,’ but Flash nails a supervillainess and nobody even bats an eye.  Admittedly, Flash was wearing another man’s skin at the time, so he didn’t have to worry about super-cooties—much—but, still, I can’t help thinking it’s that old double-standard working overtime (courtesy of Toon Zone).”
