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.

Did You Know?
After 14 years, "The Dark Knight's First Night", the rarely seen pilot promo reel developed for Warner Brothers by Bruce Timm
and Eric Radomski
, was included on the first DVD boxed set. Versions of the promo had surfaced in degraded bootleg form at comic conventions over the years, but was never intended for public viewing. Unfortunately, the actual Warner Brothers reel was not kept in the best condition either, appearing at around 105 seconds in length and having been converted from VHS. The original Audio track was lost over time and replaced with the show's main theme for the DVD. See more
