Trivia

Originally Shirley Walker's Batman theme was going to be the theme music for the show because Danny Elfman didn't want his Batman theme used for a cartoon. However, Elfman changed his mind once he learned the show would debut in Primetime. Walker's Batman theme became the DCAU Batman's music and was eventually used as the show's theme in the last 20 Fox show's when the title was changed to "The Adventures of Batman & Robin".
