Manufacturer Description

Batman: The Animated Series Vol. 1

Vowing to avenge the murder of his rich parents, Bruce Wayne devotes his daily life to wiping out lawlessness in Gotham City. The Dark Knight joins Robin and Batgirl, battling his interior demons as properly as the evil figures who bedevil him. Quantity one functions appearances from villains The Joker, Scarecrow and others.


Warner Brothers' Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995) remains a powerful, stylized system that aided to revitalize the common comedian guide hero. Drawing on such assorted influences as Frank Miller's graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, the Fleischers' Superman cartoons of the early '40s, and modern Japanese animation, the filmmakers stress exciting patterns and cinematography.

The Caped Crusader prowls a sinister, Art Deco-styled planet of tall verticals, sharp angles, silhouettes, searchlights, and grid-like shadows forged by window frames. Its visual pizzazz eclipses Filmation's pallid kidvid, The Batman/Superman Hour (CBS, 1968), which was aired sporadically in numerous incarnations through 1981. Numerous of the same artists worked on the Batman animated functions (e.g., Mask of the Illusion (1993), Batman Past--The Motion picture(1999)), which exhibit comparable strengths and weaknesses.

Ironically, Batman: The Animated Series seems to be greater in stills than it does in motion. The artists fail to stylize the movements of the figures to match the remarkable options, as Genndy Tartakovsky and his crew did in Samurai Jack.

Batman utilizes refined computers to fight the properly-identified villains--the Joker, the Penguin, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman--as properly as some less celebrated baddies: Manbat, Clayface, The Mad Hatter. The bad guys cram a great deal of plotting and scheming into each 22-minute episode, but the violence is stored to a broadcast expectations bare minimum.

The Dark Knight's 1st Knight simply ranks as the most exciting of the extras. Producers Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski recount the genesis of the series, and present their mini-pilot, which is more violent and more completely animated. If the full episodes had matched the pilot, the series would have been much more exciting.
