Hands down, one of the greatest superhero cartoons – maybe cartoon in general – is Batman: The Animated Series. The animation was beautiful. The show featured a fantastic orchestral score by Shirley Walker. Kevin Conroy voiced Batman, and Mark Hamill voiced the Joker. With a long list of memorable episodes, there isn’t much not to like about this iteration of the caped crusader.
There are still several ways for fans who get nostalgic about the classic series to get their fill of the Batman. Although Batman: The Complete Animated Series has long been out of print, you can still pick up volumes 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the collection separately on Amazon. Alternatively, you can watch full episodes of Batman: The Animated Series online at Warner Brothers’ website.
