Batman: The Complete Animated Series | Meet the Real Dark Knight

To say that Batman: The Animated Series redefined what a “cartoon” could be is an understatement; this is truly among the most influential works of animation ever made. Paul Dini and Bruce Timm’s vision portrayed the Dark Knight in his truest form ever, capturing the essence of Batman and distilling it into a slickly styled, witty package that will continue to win fans for generations to come… and blessedly purged our memories of the Adam West / Burt Ward travesty which shaped perception of this complex character for so long. As much adult fare as it will thrill kids (and there are some dark episodes that, frankly, are not appropriate for children), the show looks as fresh today as when it took the Fox Kids network by storm in 1992. Some great bonus material rounds out this beautifully designed set, about $150 from Amazon.
