With over a hundred episodes produced from 1992 to 1998, Batman: The Animated Series is commonly regarded as not just one of the greatest cartoons ever made, but one of the best depictions of Batman in any medium in the character’s 70-year history. Under producers Alan Burnett, Paul Dini, Eric Radomski and Bruce Timm and with a note-perfect voice cast led by Kevin Conroy as Batman, The Animated Series racked up classic after classic, with stories that were marked by being truly accessible and exciting for all ages. It changed super-hero media forever, and created a legacy that continues today with Timm’s work on the new Green Lantern cartoon.
This show gave me so many good happy’s all of the times. Did you know that this show was animated on to black paper instead of white? Economical! Did you know that this had some of the greatest genre episodes of any TV show ever? Did you know that I think about this show every two hours of my goddamn life? DID YOU KNOW THAT I OWE MY LIFE TO THIS SHOW? DID YOU KNOW THAT TV IS LIFE??? DID YOU EVEN KNOW HOW OR WHO OR WHY? No. You don’t know.
