The New Adventures of Batman is an animated series produced by Filmation in 1977 featuring the adventures of the DC Comics superheroes, Batman, Robin and often Batgirl. In this series, Batman, Robin and Batgirl battle various villians in Gotham City.

DVD Features:
Audio Commentary:"Bat-Commentary" - An audio commentary from Filmation historian Michael Swanigan and Filmation founder Lou Schiemer on two of the episodes from the series.
Documentary:Dark Versus Light Filmation and the Batman - (1977 marked Batman's return to television in Filmations New Adventures of Batman. Â With interviews ranging from the President of DC Comics to the President of Warner Bros. Animation, the legacy of Filmation will be examined from animation style, to how this core DC character was depicted in this series.

Featuring the voices of Batman's Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Robin/Dick Grayson, The New Adventures of Batman (1977) was the 2nd Batman animated series produced by Filmation for CBS following their 1968 Batman animated series.

Though Filmation retained most of the '60s show's character designs and production art for the '70s series, The New Adventures of Batman's use of rotoscoping (tracing over live footage) coupled with West and Ward's vocal performances gave the '70s show its artistic edge. Like most Filmation shows, educational messages were addressed at the end of every episode via "Bat-message."

The New Adventures of Batman is a 2-disc Complete Series set featuring all 16 episodes; Full Frame (1.33:1) video; Dolby Surround Stereo audio; plus the following Special Feature:

"The Dark Knight Revisited": Featurette examines the legacy of Filmation and its depiction of the DC character through interviews; and explores the split between Filmation's lighter comedic version of the character and the darker brooding Detective Comics version of the time.

Episodes:
1. The Pest
2. The Moonman
3. Trouble Identity
4. A Sweet Joke On Gotham City
5. The Bermuda Rectangle
6. Curses! Oiled Again!
7. Bite-Sized
8. Reading, Writing & Wronging
9. The Chameleon
10. He Who Laughs Last
11. The Deep Freeze
12. Dead Ringers
13. Birds Of A Feather Fool Around Together
14. Have An Evil Day (Part 1)
15. Have An Evil Day (Part 2)
16. This Looks Like A Job For Bat-Mite!

Classic '70s Filmation series finally on DVD!

The nitty gritty: new generations of Batfans will think it's worth 3 stars, while old school fans who remember this one will be more charitable.

Baking a peanut butter and sardine pie is how Robin pays up his losing a match of Pong to Batman. That should give you a quick idea of the infantile tone of this show. Anyway, I used to wake up early on Saturdays when I was a kid just to see my morning cartoons. The Caped Crusader was a big part of that, along with Superman and other heroes like Tarzan and Zorro. But Batman stood out. In 1977, the Filmation studio brought THE NEW ADVENTURES OF BATMAN to the CBS network. This series constituted 16 episodes, which were later recycled in THE BATMAN/TARZAN ADVENTURE HOUR (1977), TARZAN AND THE SUPER 7 (1978), and BATMAN AND THE SUPER 7 (1980).

Whatever current series title he was under, Batman was a recurring staple of my childhood. So I can readily forgive his show its faults. The rotoscoped animation is simplistic and quaint by today's standards and is hampered by an over-reliance on stock footage. And the "R" on Robin's costume has a tendency to vanish. The cheesy stories, meanwhile, are fit for, well, for kids who get up early to watch Saturday morning cartoons. For me, today, the draw to this show, besides nostalgia, is the voice casting of Adam West and Burt Ward, who, long after the cancellation of their live action BATMAN series, were persuaded to lend their voices to this show. Though more low key here and having noticeably cut down on the pregnant pauses, West still brings ample heapings of his dramatic line reading. Meanwhile, Burt Ward's trademark exuberance comes across fully intact. And, honestly, as young as I was, I do believe I was crushing on the sexy, red-headed Assistant D.A. Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl.

Bat-mite. The very mention of his name induces collective groans and sends a shudder down the spines of Batfans everywhere and with good reason. He is probably the most reviled sidekick to have come along until he was dethroned by Jar-Jar Binks. Filmation's 1977 animated Saturday morning The New Adventures of Batman will always be remembered, for better or worse (probably the latter) for featuring the short, mousy, impish Bat-wannabe with magical powers from the Mxyzptlk universe (voiced by producer Lou Scheimer) and the precursor of He-man's Orko. That was the only thing I had remembered from this 1977 CBS cartoon other than it featured the voices of Adam West and Burt Ward, the live-action Dynamic Duo from the campy 60's TV show. Not to be confused with the 1968 animated The Adventures of Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder which featured the voices of Casey Kasem and Olan Soule who were the regular voices for their characters on Challenge of the Superfriends, the competing series airing concurrently on the ABC network produced by Hanna-Barbera. Revisting this cartoon again on DVD it still retains most of that 60's camp no-thanks to the annoying Bat-Mite who was obviously thrown in to appeal to the kiddies but instead of being a continuation of the 60's TV show, The New Adventures of Batman takes the Dynamic Duo into the 70's giving it a more urbanized look and feel. The traditional Rogues Gallery of villains make their appearances including the Joker with his laughing hyena, Penquin, Mr. Freeze, Clayface, and Zardor, the Bat-Mite villain from his home planet Ergo. Melendy Britt who voiced Princess Aura on Filmation's Flash Gordon provides the voices for Batgirl and Catwoman. The Riddler and Scarecrow were verboten as they were in use by the competing Hanna-Barbera on Challenge of the Superfriends.Read more ›

Seems a lot of Adam West-voiced Batman material's coming...
I highly doubt it. Much different market. Everybody wants the Adam West live action show. It's the #2 requested unreleased show at TVShowsonDVD.com

WB will eventually get all the Super Friends seasons out there, if they think there is a market, I think.
