Trivia

One of the reasons why Tim Curry was replaced by Mark Hamill for the role of Joker was because Executives of the show felt that Tim Curry's voice for Joker sounded similar to his voice for Captain Hook in Peter Pan and the Pirates (1990-1991) and his voice for Konk in Pirates of Dark Water (1991-1992).

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 »

User Reviews

The best superhero cartoon ever.
17 August 2000 | by (The BatCave) – See all my reviews

This is every thing an adventure show should be. It has action, drama, comedy, tragedy and a truly Gothic feel (fitting that it takes place in Gotham). The interesting thing about the Batman character is that the only reason he becomes Bruce Wayne is to make enough money to fund his Batman work and to help the less fortunate. He's such a tragic character as he's given up a personal life for his parents dream. The stories are wonderfully intelligent and fun at the same time. There are very few poor episodes in this series (but note that their are some). Even lame villains like the Clock King and Mr. Freeze are made engaging and exciting. Ignore the movies and watch the series. Heck, at times it can even be much more realistic than the movies (like in "I am the Night") Some recommended episodes are: "Almost Got 'Im" (a poker game where Bat-Villain recount how they almost killed him), "His Silicon Soul" (a robot clone of Batman is a little too much like Batman too do a computers evil bidding) and "the Man who killed Batman" (in which a small time crook has seemingly killed Batman... by accident)
