Storyline

In this series, Batman, Robin and Batgirl battle various villians in Gotham City. Complicating things however is the presence of Batmite, a other-dimensional imp who considers himself the biggest fan of Batman and insists on helping him, regardless of whether Batman wants it or not.

Trivia

The Riddler was shown in the opening credits but never appeared in any of the episodes. This was because Hanna-Barbera held the rights to use The Riddler, Scarecrow, and Solomon Grundy for Challenge of the Superfriends (1978). See more »

Joel Schumacher's favorite Cartoon?
16 September 1999 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This has to be the worst representation of Batman ever! That ones who think that the 1966 series was the worst, trust me when I say that it looks like an Alan Moore work compared to this.

Ladies and gentlemen: Come and see BAT-MITE!!!!!!!

What? You don't know who's Bat-Mite? You don't know how lucky you are. He gave a new dimension to the word 'annoying' (Jar Jar Binks? HAH! Let me laugh. Jar Jar looks like Charles Chaplin beside this spawn of sick cuteness). Just imagine Batman and Robin teaming up with some Teletubby possessed by Jim Carrey's soul. That's our friend Bat-Mite.

Batman... poor Batman. More aberrations have been committed in his name than in the name of any other comic book character. Just remember the 1966 series and movie, 'Super Friends' (another sucky cartoon) or the most recent Joel Schumacher 'masterpieces' ('Batman Forever' and 'Batman & Robin'). Maybe Joely Boy found the inspiration for his movies watching this... (his fave cartoon ever? Very possibly). After B & R, there's only one remaining step: 'Batman & Bat-Mite' (aka The Batsy Horror Picture Show).

Coming soon to a theatre near you...
