Watch The Batman

Where the law is not enough, criminals can roam free, and injustice is around every corner, sometimes something more is needed. Something like The Batman. Gotham City has a silent protector in the shadows--a vigilante in the guise known as Batman. He is a dark hero with every special gadget known to man (and some that are not), a sleek Batmobile, his own secret base, and even the ever-reliable butler Alfred Pennyworth (Voice: Alastair Duncan).

Meet Bruce Wayne (Voice: Rhino Romano), rich, famous, and the young man who becomes Gotham's Batman when the dangerous nights loom long and dark. As every foe from every corner slowly tumbles out, Batman must go up against them all for the sake of justice, and Gotham's safety--and avoid the law itself as it brutally condemns the chaotic free spirit in the name of 'justice' that Batman embodies.

Expect plenty of classic Batman villains to appear like: The Joker (Voice: Kevin Michael Richardson), a lunatic with a sick sense of humor and sicker sense of fun; Catwoman (Voice: Gina Gershon), a sly and quick-footed thief whose home is the night just as much as Batman's; and Rupert Thorne (Voice: Victor Brandt), a thug and a gangster with only riches and himself on his mind.

The Batman is an animated TV series produce by Warner Bros. Animation, based on the superhero from DC Comics of the same name--though the show does not follow the continuity of any other Batman-related storylines such as comics or movies. The Batman was created by Michael Goguen and Duane Capizzi and is of the action, mystery/suspense, and superhero genres. Character designs were done by Jeff Matsuda, from Jackie Chan Adventures. There are 5 seasons with 65 episodes total. The Batman is great for young audiences as well as old fans of the superhero. The series has won six Daytime Emmy Awards.
