Trivia

The FOX Network, on the false assumption that kids won't watch a kid's show, unless kids are in it, soon began insisting that Robin be prominently featured in every episode. When FOX changed the title to "The Adventures of Batman and Robin" for season three, they laid down the law. No story premise was to be considered, unless it was either a Robin story, or one in which he played a key role. See more »

The way Batman is supposed to be!
1 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

When this series first came out, I was at least eight years old; so of course I wouldn't really understand most of it with this being a drama and all... now I realize that this is the most accurate retelling of the Batman legacy EVER! Starting off, compare this to the horrid series they have created now: "The Batman," where they treat Batman like Superman by wondering who he is... it just doesn't measure up... allow me to explain the differences: one of which being the presence of Ethan Bennet. Who you ask? I rest my case... there is none that I can remember.

Secondly, this one is perfectly parallel to the comics. There's no such thing as the bat-wave in the original, but there will always be the bat signal! Finally, the animation looks as it should. Joker is not in a straight jacket, The Riddler doesn't look like Bono from U2, and every voice actor sounds just like they should.

To sum it all up, this series was everything that "The batman" isn't... and that's a good thing.
