Heir to the Wayne family fortune, Bruce Wayne lives by day as a seemingly lavish playboy millionaire socialite, but by night assumes the role of his crime-fighting alter-ego: the caped crusader known as Batman. Throughout the Animated Series, Batman receives help from sidekicks Robin and Batgirl, as well as Police Commissioner Gordon, in protecting the streets of Gotham City from a large rogue's gallery of criminals, lunatics and nemeses.

Trivia

The episodes Batman: The Animated Series: Heart of Steel: Part I (1992) and Batman: The Animated Series: His Silicon Soul (1992) feature a character named Dr. Carl Rossum, a robotics engineer who creates a series of human-like robots. The character's name is taken from the 1920s science fiction play "R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots)" by Karel Capek, which introduced the word "robot" into the English language. In both episodes, Dr. Carl Rossum is voiced by William Sanderson, who played the Replicant creator J.F. Sebastian in Blade Runner (1982). As a reference to this, Randa Dwayne's car has "RUR" on its license plate. See more »

Crazy Credits

Despite being invariably referred to as "Batman--The Animated Series" (until the changes in title, tone, and additional screen time for Robin for the second season), the series had NO on-screen title. The opening "credits" sequence was a montage of action shots with no titles of any kind. See more »
