Hands down, the best animated series ever is Batman. Don’t believe me? How many other animated comic book adaptations can you think of that have won an Emmy award? This show was the bee’s knees back in the day and the series still has some punch ten years on. The acting was phenomenal (Mark Hamill, a.k.a. Luke Skywalker, as the Joker) and the scripts were done not merely to please the young crowd, but also told the stories in such a way they would appeal to an older generation as well.
This DVD collection is part one of four volumes and it holds some gems from the show including one of my all-time favorites, the two part episode, Feat of Clay. Did I mention that the acting in this show was amazing? Clayface was voiced by none other than Ron Perlman of Hellboy fame. Although some may consider the hand-drawn cell animation antiquated, any Bat fan should appreciate the Art Deco crossed with film noir design. Each volume houses four separate DVDs, which equates to a whole lot of cartooning goodness. Grab your youngin, sit him on the couch, and educate him about the world of Gotham and just how good cartoons can actually be if someone puts some craft into their creation.
