Majority of the episodes have the wrong credits in the beginning. The main reason I wanted to watch this was to re-live the feeling I got when I originally watched this show as a kid. The classic "opening bank heist silhouette scene" has been replaced with the less enthusiastic opening credits for "The New Batman & Superman Adventures." The classic "opening bank heist silhouette scene" really sets the tone for a Batman adventure. I prefer to keep Batman and Superman separate.

My son loves Batman. I love to get him Batman toys, but I'd been hesitant to get any kind of video due to the hard nature and adult themes in most of what's out there. After previewing a couple of episodes from The Animated Series, my mind was put as ease and I was happy to know that kid-friendly Batman cartoons existed. Like the Dark Knight himself, the presentation is rather dark and may fool parents about its content. It's not bright and colorful and the music score is a bit sinister. But that's Batman. If you decide to get this for you kids, sit with them and watch a couple of episodes. You may find yourself wanting to watch more! There's no killing, no blood, and no strong language. The dialogue leans toward the adult side, but most all cartoons do this as they are created by adults. My child expects to see Batman dispensing of the bad guys and sending them to jail, and that's what he gets. If you're at all hesitant to buy this for you child, watch an episode on Amazon first. I think you'll find it worthy for viewing by ages 6 and up.

the only key issue I have is that the intro to the show is wrong. It's Batman: The Animated Series, not New Adventures of Batman and Superman. Fix that and you get your five stars.

CHANGE BACK TO THE ORIGINAL OPENING CREDITS!!
While the intro is not very important to the plot of any episode, it SETS THE TONE for the show! The original was many times better than the adventures of superman and batman intro......FIX IT AMAZON! The first few seasons didn't do this originally on tv, so why are you doing it here?!

This is truly a cartoon that adults and children will both enjoy. The animation has a film noir style and is rich with detail. Many shots look like Edward Hopper paintings. The storylines are engaging and complex. It's a great introduction to the world of DC Comics, especially for people who get turned off by sci-fi or unrealistic CGI.
Be careful watching this with children. It should work well if you watch with them, but if they're very young or easily frightened, you might run into problems. There is shooting, fires, and some scenes with monsters that might be disturbing. Still, it's probably safer than 80% of what's on TV.
When I look at this series, it seems so far superior to the cartoons I see on TV today. The characters actually look like people. The stories were written by writers who actually read books. There are layers of meaning so viewers of different ages can take away different lessons. I would go as far as saying anybody who writes for TV should watch this series to learn how to do it well.

[[Edited 3/5/2014]] Review incorrectly noted that Arkham Origins was voiced by Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill but meant to say Arkham Asylum. Fixed now.

Dark and defining - this is the series that piqued my interest in Batman when I was young.
Voice acting is stellar, done by the defining greats of Batman - Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill etc. You may recognize their voices from the Arkham video game series (Arkham Asylum and Arkham City).
Fantastic themes and the animation has a unique feel to it that you will appreciate.

The 90's rocked and so did this show!!! So watch it or re-watch it ASAP.

One of the Greatest Cartoons of all times, easily equalling or topping many Japanese Anime of its generation, BTAS of the DCAU was the flagship brand that began a decade long legacy of DC comic book heroes. I grew up watching Batman and while it is a dark show, Batman should never be sold as merely a story about a guy in a costume fighting crime; he represents the best of humanity with all our flaws. With Episodes like Heart of Ice and Appointment at Crime Alley, you get a dark knight, who is sympathetic to his enemies and a really tragic huan being who struggles with guilt and revenge.

This is the only incarnation of Batman, who I can relate to. While Mark Hamil's Joker is zany and maybe less exciting than Heath Ledger's Joker, Kevin Conroy's voice acting is definitely the Batman that remains in my thoughts with words like "I am Vengeance, I am the night, I am Batman" that sends goosebumps up my spine every time. This is a human being, not just a superhero.

The villains also deserve a lot of praise from the creation of the Two Face, Clock King, and Mr Freeze, simply put this show did it better than anyother in back story.

Growing up in the late 80s and early 90s, we started getting some good cartoons. Batman: The Animated series (this applies to all volumes) was one of, if not, the very best ones we got. It featured rich characters, cool villians, and did a great job at portraying the dark, serious side of Batman.

Rewatching the show through Amazon Prime's Instant Video, I'm amazed at the grim, noir styling, something I didn't pick up as a child. While Batman, and sometimes other characters use some "high tech gadgetry", a lot of the show is portraying this 1930's era Chicago Metropolitan area. This goes a long way to reinforcing Batman's roots as a detective and a crime fighter. The show often takes itself very seriously, with the occasional slip of "Har-Har" style dialogue.

My few gripes with the show are that the episodes seem to be out of order, and almost seem as if they are in order of production, and not original air date. The other slight annoyance is how some episodes do not have the original Batman intro, and instead have the Batman/Superman Animated Series intro, which is okay, but not nearly as good. Neither of these issues to me, present a reason for knocking the rating.
