Today is the 20th Anniversary of BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES. I didn’t write anything new because I was busy detailing the miseries of Funky Winkerbean last night, but here are some things I’ve written about the show in the past:
1: The Ten Best Episodes of Batman: The Animated Series - “Best,” of course, being a shorter version of “my personal favorites.” I still think people who don’t like “The Forgotten” are the wrongest wrongs in Wrongtown, though.
2: The 14 Best Title Cards - One of my favorite things about the series, and one of the factors contributing to its unique look and beautiful aesthetic.
3: A Shot-By-Shot Breakdown Of The Opening Sequence - How B:TAS tells you everything you need to know about Batman in 57 dialogue-free seconds.
4: Animated Batmanology: Tyger Tyger - David Uzumeri and I break down one of the all-time worst episodes of the series, in which Catwoman turns into a cat woman.
BONUS: War Rocket Ajax partner-in-crime Matt Wilson writes up the ten worst episodes, which surprisingly doesn’t have any overlap with my ten best.
Okay, I’m not into the whole cosplay stuff but this is awesome and I’m the biggest Batman geek in the world.
and he puts out on the first date.
