Editorial Reviews

Adventures of Batman (1968)

These lighthearted cartoons from the late 1960s were sometimes paired with animated Superman episodes for a full hour of heroic fun. As always, the Dark Knight fights for good, with Bruce Wayne and his ward Dick Grayson becoming the Dynamic Duo. Whenever they see the Bat-Signal flash in the sky, Batman and Robin swing into action to protect Gotham City from villains such as The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler and Catwoman. Other favorite characters include Alfred Pennyworth, Commissioner Gordon, Barbara Gordon/Batgirl and Mr. Freeze. Voice legend Casey Kasem brings Robin's character to life.

hey there! darrell mcneil here. i was an animator/layout artist for filmation associates, (among other studios), in the '70's and '80's, participated in the writing of two books on the studio, including the recent autobiography of my old friend and boss, filmation co-founder lou scheimer and am cyrrently doingmy own thing with animated and live-action projects,including the last one lou participated in before his passing. i'm looking forward to 'the adventures of batman' release, having had tapes of the show for years, but there's a factual error i saw in one of the comments above that i wish to rectify. much as i respect his talents as a boice artist and the work he did for filmation on several series, larry storch was NEVER the voice of the joker! joker, as were all of the villains, was performed by ted knight. not only is whoever keeps stating that in error, but when hanna-barbera animated batman, robin, , joker & penguin for the new scooby-doo movies in 1072, they used the same lead voices for it and that included TED doing the exact same joker voice he provided in the batman series. listen to both of them and see if that isn't so! regardless, these shows are trteasuresand it'll be nice to have crisp quality dvd versions of them. (a shame, though, that they had to finally come out after lou's passing....the copies he had were ones i gave him,and he would've enjoyed seeing them in this format.

I am so very glad that series is at last out on DVD. Just as the Adam West show ended Filmation animation gained the rights for Batman. they already had a long history of superheros. First with Superman later with Aquaman and others. so for the first time Batman came to the screens in animation form. I am a big fan of the 90s animated series, but I accept all versions. I love this early begining of Batman animation. Here Olan Soule and Cassy Casum (Shaggy on Scooby Doo) voice Batman and Robin. (they later go on to voice them in the Superfriends Hanna Barbara cartoon.Ted Knight would narrate and voice many characters.

so for this DVd it has the complet late 60s Filmation Batman animated series. i feel that not only does it have the spirit of the West show but it also has the feel of Silver Age comics. (which i could say about all the Filmation toons). Your not gonna get dark gritty stories here. its all light fun and adventure. but its good for the whole family.

Batman and Robin come up against many of their most well known foes. the Joker is there, The Penquin, Catwoman, there is the "cool cruel" Mr. Freeze (who just gained popularity with the West show, which took the one shot villain Mr Zero, renamed him and made him famous). there is the Riddler, who would go on to Superfriends but do to rights issues not the 77 Filmation toon. There are many other foes all who make their first animated apperance. Scarecrow and Mad Hatter make single apperances. there are new villains. Simon the Pieman, the Judge. Dollman. Batgirl (who just won new found fame) shows up a few times to help out.

on the whole this is just a fun series with lots of cool adventures. the first time Batman made his mark on the animated world.

Later on in 77 Filmation would do another cartoon. some are iffy about that one. i liked that it had Adam West and Burt Ward do the voices. it was still a fun show. but that is for another review.

I have watched the new set of these classic FILMATION cartoons from 1968. I was unsure if that was what they were until I recognized the episode titles listed on the back. Why feature 70's art renderings of the dynamic duo when the FILMATION-looking characters are INSIDE the package? Anyway, once you get past this blunder...the contents do not dissapoint...mostly.The opening main title credits look like crap on EVERY episode! It literally looks like someones VHS taped off a cable broadcast. But the episodes themselves and the end credits are pristine and better than ever!! They look and sound fantastic! So I'm very happy...but a bit confused.

These cartoons from 1968 are great for Robin fans. While technically his sidekick, Robin is not just cheering from the sidelines while Batman does all the heroics. In these episodes, Robin gets plenty of action and is almost an equal to his famous mentor. I have included some screencaps of Robin to illustrate this.

In this two-disc set, episodes are grouped in three's: a two-part episode followed by a one-part episode. The opening and closing credits are shown only once in each three-part set.

Except for the opening credits, the image quality is pretty good. The price is right, too!

A winner!

If you're a fan of the original 60's Adam West, Burt Ward TV Spoof series of Batman, this show will appeal to you as it captures that style very well with its storytelling, characters and execution. The stories do sometimes get repetitious however but do try to be amusing in the TV spoof style. Bang, pow, zap for the fights. Much like a comic book.

Only other real concern I had was the fact that the show has way too many close up views of the characters face. So expect 80% of every shot in each episode to consist of a static face in the foreground taking up 50% of the screen, and someone in the background standing nearby. This was the intentional style, so if you're a fan, enjoy. I prefer more breathing room when watching a show. That said, the art style is well done, and this is a historic take of Filmation's early days and interpretation of the Caped Crusader, Batman.
