Description:

Batman fans, rejoice. Batman: The Animated Series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation, storms right out of the gate firmly rooted in the Batman comic book tradition. Directed by Bruce Timm, the animated show stays true to the comic book's dark tones by using cutting-edge animation techniques, dramatic orchestral music and Emmy-winning storytelling that can keep anyone on the edge of his or her seat.

Set in the 1940s, Gotham City's vigilante justice seeker Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego Batman protect Gotham City streets from a host of villains, both familiar and new. Villains include the Joker, the Penguin, Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, the Riddler, the Mad Hatter, Bane, Killer Croc, and the Clock King. Harley Quinn, the Joker's assistant was created on this show, and went on to become a very popular antagonist in the series.

Batman: the Animated Series was originally released as a children's program, but has an adult-oriented nature, with each unique episode being intelligently written with interesting storylines and smart dialog. With the spectacular animation found throughout each episode, the lively action scenes leave you wanting more.

The main characters are voiced by Kevin Conroy as Batman, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as Alfred Pennyworth and Bob Hastings as Commissioner Jim Gordon. Other famous actors can be heard throughout the series, most notably playing the antagonists. Mark Hamill found a new voiceover career voicing the Joker and Adrienne Barbeau voices the popular character Catwoman/Selina Kyle. Kate Mulgrew, Melissa Gilbert, Adam West and other famous actors can be heard lending their recognizable voices to multiple characters within the episodes.

Batman: The Animated Series is well-respected in the animation industry and has won Emmys for animation, writing, music and sound editing.
