    Not to go terribly off topic, but why is the sixties show the worst?

    IMHO, I was at just the right age when B:TAS hit the airwaves, I was completely taken by the show and it's later incarnations, right through to JLU. However, The Batman I could never really get into. Personally, I see this as being much like The Batman.

    It has the new Blue Beetle in it, that automatically makes this show awesome.

    They should have just continued The Batman series. Or continued it on into a new JLA series. I'll check it out when it comes on but I don't know.

    Batman, looking back on it, was REALLY dark and mature for my age group back in the day. But by god I loved that cartoon. Forget Superman, Batman TAS was where it was it, there was some serious stuff going on there, hell I even liked Batman Beyond (loved the JLU tie ins to that series too, old-ass static shock FTW).

    I guess I can give this a shot while I'm channel surfing.

    Well at least we have the new DCD DVDs such as new frontieer with more coming. After Gotham Knight I believe Wonder Woman is up next, I want the Judas Contract to hurry up though. I want a full 2 hours as well.

    go watch it and count how many times bat as a prefix comes up, also count how many times bat is used as a prefix on a item that doesnt need it. your count should be the same.

    the 60s show was godawful, but consider the time it came out- it was battling the ratings juggernauts like The Beverly Hillbillies and MayBerry RFD and Bonanza and Gunsmoke; Vietnam was on the news every day and well, the campy comic thing was also a way to connect with the peaceniks and LSD droppers.
    But Bats appearing in broad daylight, could call the airport to set up the batcopter or go to pier 80 to get the batboat (gee, not a cop anywhere was trying to nab him, were they?) and with adam west, he looked like he got winded walking those walls (those were fimed sideways).

    it is a good show to start young kids on, then when they got older, might trick them into Brave and the Bold, then Superfriends, and when they started getting all emo/goth or angry, spoon feed em BTAS and feel good about a proper education.

    i still argue with my dad about the 60s show being propaganda- bats and the commissioner and gordon were the establishment and the Joker and the rogues were the war protesters or outsiders that society hadn't uncovered till the war.
    so, it ain't all bad when you can stir up historical debate on such a goofy platform.

    Sadly that actually makes sense. A lot of sense.

    The Adam West Batman series is not meant to be taken as true Batman/Dark Night. It is more or less a campy goofy version to have a laugh with.

    Yes everything was Bat- this and bat- that. But honestly a lot of his stuff was Bat- this and bat-that.

    The worst thing to ever happen to Batman was Batman and Robin. Made me long for the days of Adam West and a good old Bat-toosie.


    Edit: How can you not think this is hilarious!

    I just picked up all of the DVD's for Batman: TAS. I'm thoroughly impressed with it so far in Season 1.

    I personally think vice versa on the animation style working for Batman

    I assume you mean the Animated Series?

    I'm not sure many people remember just how different Batman TAS was compared to all the other shows at the time. Dark, quiet, heavy on psychology (for a kids show). Compare that to some of the SuperFriends cartoons, even the ones from mid-80s.

    Anyway...

    As for the new look of this animated series, I recall a lot of bitching about the look of BTAS when it premiered as being too cartoony (that war before any one actually watched On Leather Wings, Heart of Ice, or Feat of Clay.

    Similarly there was a lot of bitching about the new look of The Batman, but again I think the series proved itself.

    Let's wait to see an episode, to see the direction, the tone, the animation, rather than judging it based on a single, static promotional image.

    And as I recall, when BTAS premiered, the popular animated series were Tiny Toons and Animaniacs and the Disney adventure stuff (DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers, TailSpin, etc), all of which were fine - head and shoulders above Scooby Doo and the other HB crap I grew up on - but still a far cry from BTAS.

    The only adventure show I can recall with some popularity for that time period was Turtles, which I think was a cut above similar series like Transformers and GIJoe, and about on par with Real Ghostbusters (admittedly I haven't seen many of these shows in over a decade), but none of them had the same "mature" tone WB tried with BTAS.

    I actually like the way the new show looks. As for the 60's show, it's not perfect, but I do like it, and I'm a big Batman fan, along with pretty much everybody else in my family. My father grew up watching it, and I grew up watching it. Only other show like that has been Scooby Doo. Both my father and I watched it. Kind of a bonding experience for the two of us.
