Heir to the Wayne family fortune, Bruce Wayne (Kevin Conroy) 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 show, Batman receives help from sidekicks Robin (Loren Lester) and Batgirl (Melissa Gilbert), as well as Police Commissioner Gordon (Bob Hastings), in protecting the streets of Gotham City from a large rogue's gallery of criminals, lunatics, and nemeses.

Trivia

After fourteen years, The Dark Knight's First Night (1992), 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 it was never intended for public viewing. Unfortunately, the actual Warner Brothers reel was not kept in the best condition either, appearing at around one minute and forty-five seconds in length, and having been converted from VHS. The original audio track was believed to have been lost over time, and replaced with the show's main theme for the DVD. However, a version that surfaced on YouTube did have the original audio intact. The real reason for it not being included on the DVD could possibly have been due to the original audio track's use of Danny Elfman's score from the Tim Burton films. See more »

Finally, someone got Batman right.
11 March 2002 | by hcl-1See all my reviews

Forget the camp & cheese of the previous Batman cartoons...this is a masterpiece! The depiction of Batman fighting both the psychos of Gotham City and his inner demons spawned from the murder of his parents years ago is superb. For years Anime had proved that animation need not be just for kids. Batman: The Animated Series solidifies that conclusion.

Kevin Conroy has the perfect voice for both Batman and Bruce Wayne (there is a very obvious distinction). Mark Hamill gives the Joker sadism, sarcasm, and lunacy without resorting to goofiness. Efram Zimblast Jr. makes an excellent Alfred by being loyal, yet openly concerned about his employer's choice of career.

This series is coming to DVD soon - I'm getting in line!
