Batman: The Animated Series is an animated superhero series based on the eponymous vigilante, and depicted his ongoing crusade against injustice in Gotham City. Created by Paul Dini, Eric Radomski, and Bruce Timm, it aired from 1992 to 1995 on Fox Kids, and is often considered one of the greatest and most influential animated series ever made.

The series' influences can be tied back to the original comics, Tim Burton's 1989 film Batman, and even the classic 1966 Batman TV series. Many consider it to be the definitive adaptation of the Batman comics, and well as having the definitive Batman in Kevin Conroy, and the definitive Joker in Mark Hamill.

It was the beginning of the DC Animated Universe, with two direct sequel series, The New Batman Adventures and Batman Beyond, tie-in films such as Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, and featuring its characters in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. Years later, it was followed by the comic series Batman: The Adventures Continue.

Notes[]

  • Some sources split the episodes of the series into two seasons, while others group them into four seasons.
    • Those with two seasons reflect the number of shows Fox ordered in each of two batches, the 65 that first aired from 1992 to 1993 and 20 that first aired (under the title The Adventures of Batman and Robin) from 1994 to 1995.
    • Those with four seasons used US air dates and the US implied definition of "season". At the time the show aired, 1992-1996, a "season" normally ran from September to May. Those lists that designate four seasons count the first new episode in or after September as the start of a new season: the first with 60 episodes, the second and third with 10 episodes each, and the fourth with 5 episodes.
    • This Wiki uses the two season model.
  • Per several producers and creatives, the series was only ever referred to as "Batman" in development. Its "official" name of Batman: The Animated Series first appeared in advertising spots on Fox Kids, and was quickly adopted by tie-in toys and novelizations.
