Vowing to avenge the senseless murder of his wealthy parents, Bruce Wayne (voiced by series star KEVIN CONROY) devotes his life to wiping out lawlessness in Gotham City. The Dark Knight occasionally joins Robin and Batgirl, battling his own inner demons as often as the evil figures who bedevil him. Relive the Batman saga in this faithful rendering of the character and stories. Volume four features all the action, villainy and heroism of previous installments.]]>

The real shame about The New Batman Adventures is that KidsWB basically stopped production after 24 episodes, so we don't get to see the new revamps as much as we'd like (ex. Riddler, unfortunately, only shows up in minor cameos). A host of new villains and femme fatales appear, including Calendar Girl, Roxy Rocket, and the (dreaded) Farmer Brown and his mutant farm animals. Etrigan and The Creeper make their first animated appearances, but only get an episode each (Etrigan was later fleshed out in Justice League). Most telling is that certain plot threads feel rushed, including the introduction of Tim Drake as the new Robin, the departure and return of Dick Grayson as Nightwing, and even a new twist involving Two-Face. There just weren't enough episode to tell everything the staff wanted to tell (and maybe they told one Joker story too many).
Are these episodes as good as the original B:TAS? Overall, no. It's more about comic book fights and action now. Bruce Wayne's a little stiffer and darker, and the stories have lost that humanizing touch the best B:TAS episodes had (with exceptions of course). Is the quality still there? Yes. This is still excellent entertainment for kids and adults alike, and new viewers may be surprised at how mature these episodes feel compared to the stuff on KidsWB these days.
Definitely pick up vol. 4. It's a nice supplement to the initial 3 volumes, and continues the animated legacy of Batman nicely. Here's hoping Batman Beyond gets the box set treatment next.

While not nearly as good as the first 3 seasons. This is still an excellent show. And it dos contain the episode "Mad Love" which is among the top 5 episodes.Published 2 days ago by Hughes S. Crawford

I think it's of the Superman: The Animate Series. It was reales in the DVD "Superman, the Animated Series: Volume 2." It can also be bought separately on the DVD "The Batman/Superman Movie."

|What the heck happened to the SPANISH subs???||
I know! On Boomerang (a cable channel) you can see these episodes in Spanish, so why not here?! At least there're subtitles...
