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 The Batman. Throughout the show, Batman receives help from sidekicks Dick Grayson/Robin (Loren Lester) and Barbara Gordon/Batgirl (Melissa Gilbert), as well as Police Commissioner James Gordon (Bob Hastings), in protecting the streets of Gotham City from a large rogue's gallery of criminals, lunatics, and nemeses.Written by
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 DC Animated Universe's Batman's music, and was eventually used as the show's theme in the last twenty FOX shows, when the title was changed to "The Adventures of Batman & Robin".

Grew up with B:TAS, unlike the Mike Keaton, and Val Kilmer movies. Kevin Conroy is excellent and will always be the real Bruce Wayne/Batman. B:TAS is the classic stuff you gotta love, and it beats the heck out of the comics and Adam West any day! Can't wait for DC Classic Collections: Volume 2 of Batman: The Animated Series. If you don't already have it, Volume 1 is outstanding, complete with audio commentary and extras. Plus, now you don't have to get up at 2am to watch it on Cartoon Network(if it's on anymore)!! Batman: The Animated Series, The Adventures of Batman and Robin, and Batman: Gotham Knights best series ever!
