This is the first time Jason Todd has appeared by name outside of the comic books. He has however been mentioned by name twice before. First in the second episode of the short-lived Birds of Prey television series, "Slick", then again in an episode the Teen Titans animated series. Also Tim Drake from The New Batman Adventures is depicted as a hybrid of these two characters' comic versions, with a background almost identical to the Post-Crisis Jason's, as well as a similar fate at the hands of the Joker.

This was one of the best BATMAN animated full-length movies, but not the ultimate movie I was hoping to be. Why? First the good things that make "Batman: Under the Red Hood" so entertaining: With no doubt in this movie we have so much violence that we couldn't see in all previous Batman animations put together. There are actual kills, blood and torturing scenes. I consider this as a plus. The animation is very smooth, the characters are very well developed, the action scenes are cool. I liked the way Batman was designed. It resembled more the TV series' from 1992 ("Batman: The Animated Series"), then the more recent shows "The Batman" or "Batman: the Brave and the Bold". I miss however the voice of Kevin Conroy - the best Batman voice ever! The Joker had a different look - I think it was a good interpretation, but again - the voice was not a good match. Most of the time the Joker speaks it sounds as a pretty normal speech - speech of a normal person. It lacks the crazy uber and undertones Mark Hamill could create. The plot was kinda inconsistent, We have one pointless appearance of Nightwing, one pointless fight with Ameizo - that seemed to me like filling a gap. The story was predictable and somewhat boring. However in overall the animation was very entertaining and fun to watch. I liked it more than any other full-length Batman animation, but still I would prefer the TV-series from the beginning of the 90's
