Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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.]]>

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.
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!
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.
