While working in this show, Bruce W. Timm
and Story Editor Sean Catherine Derek
strongly disagreed with each other. According to the Book "Batman Animated" Page 12, Sean Catherine Derek felt that Directors and Storyboard artists of this show were taking too many liberties with the scripts. Jules Dennis
, Richard Mueller
, and Sean Catherine Derek
wrote the original script of Episode "The Forgotten." But Bruce Timm made several changes to the script. According to 'Animato' Magazine Issue #26, Timm put in the dream sequence with Bruce Wayne in the barracks where the multitudes of people are looking to Bruce for a handout, and he doesn't have enough money for them all, and they're surrounding him and suffocating him. Timm also completely changed the villain in the script of "The Forgotten" to a fat and revolting character who constantly eats. See more

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
