A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

  • May 27, 2012
Batman: The Animated Series is probably the best case in my life where I simply liked a cartoon during its original broadcast run and through becoming an adult, I now absolutely love it and even consider it among the absolute best in the animation world.

This show had it all: superb animation, tip-top voice acting (especially Mark Hamill as The Joker, you can't beat that with a police baton), gripping storylines, fantastically-developed characters, a powerful art style, and heart-pounding action.  There's so many great episodes in this series, but an episode that sticks out to me at the moment is the Season 1 episode "Heart of Ice."  That episode had a lot of emotional depth executed in that one.

If you enjoyed this show, you should also check out Batman:  Mask of the Phantasm, which is an animated film made by the same people that made this series.

Finally, it's worth noting that despite the fact that Batman:  The Animated Series was a show originally broadcast in a timeslot for kids' entertainment, it feels much more mature than so many anime titles that are marketed as "adult."

agreed on all points. Loved this series! It also has the most awesome opening--no "Batman" text or mention, adds an air of mystery.

Yeah, that opening rules. All the images in that opening told us everything we needed to know about the show without using a single word.
