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.
This show is why I read comics. Yay!
….on second thought, maybe I should be angry at it.
