Mark Hamill auditioned for the role of the joker thinking he wouldn't get the part because fans of his role of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movies, an icon of heroism and virtue, would be against him playing a villain like The Joker. Because he didn't think he get the part he was very calm in his audition and got the part anyway. See more »

Perhaps the best animated series ever. It provides great accuracy in the stories and characters, while allows innovation and imagination. They "pull no punches" and didn't try to make this a kiddy show. It became the trend setter for "Superman" and "Batman: Beyond", even though neither can compare.
