Vowing to avenge the murder of his wealthy parents, Bruce Wayne devotes his life to wiping out lawlessness in Gotham City. The Dark Knight joins Robin and Batgirl, battling his inner demons as well as the evil figures who bedevil him. Volume one features appearances from villains The Joker, Scarecrow and others.]]>
Ironically, Batman: The Animated Series looks better in stills than it does in motion. The artists fail to stylize the movements of the characters to match the dramatic settings, as Genndy Tartakovsky and his crew did in Samurai Jack. Batman uses sophisticated computers to combat the well-known villains--the Joker, the Penguin, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman--as well as some less celebrated baddies: Manbat, Clayface, The Mad Hatter. The bad guys cram a lot of plotting and scheming into each 22-minute episode, but the violence is kept to a broadcast standards minimum.
The Dark Knight's First Knight easily ranks as the most interesting of the extras. Producers Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski recount the genesis of the series, and show their mini-pilot, which is more violent and more fully animated. If the complete episodes had matched the pilot, the series would have been much more exciting. (Unrated, suitable for ages 8 and older: violence, mild grotesque imagery) --Charles Solomon
I used to watch this show all the time as a kid. The stories are well-planned and told even engaging me as an adult now watching them again.Published 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
When the series first started I was in my early 30's. I would make a point of going to work early so that I could come home in time catch Batman at 4PM. Read morePublished 12 days ago by K. Rule
This season got much better, i just love the situations he gets into. He's the only hero with no superpowers but can kick butt and save the dayPublished 22 days ago by Christopher Sheffield
Too violent for my 4 and 5 year olds. Waste of money as they may not be "in" to superheroes any more by the time I let them watch them.Published 1 month ago by Stephanie G.
This is my favorite of all the Batman mediums. The show is still just as great as I remembered it being when I used to run home from the bus after school to watch it!Published 2 months ago by J. Z.

|Digital Version Having Different Intro||
Well, this is almost a year late, but the intro for the Animated Series on Amazon is the one from the new Batman/Superman Adventures when the show ran on Kids WB.

|Warner bros customer service?||
If anyone finds out how to reach Warner Bros for customer service issues I'd like to know as well. I recently bought this item, new and still shrink-wrapped, and it was missing the fourth disc altogether. Thanks!

The DVDs are a decent deal. With the increasing demand for Blu-ray I'd expect these to start coming to the HD scene within a year. That doesn't necessarily mean we'll be buying it next Christmas.... but one can hope!
