    haven't watched toon disney in some time, so i didn't know they removed it.
    But since i own the 4 volume DVD set, i am not too worried.

    There's always a chance they will bring it back

    It may have been a limited contract/temporary run on Toon Disney, since WB owns the rights to it.

    It still pops up on Boomerang's schedule occasionally.

    And as of this post, you can watch about 12 full episodes from BTAS Season 2 (which was renamed "The Adventures of Batman & Robin" at the time it originally aired) on fancast.com, along with several episodes from Batman Beyond.

    My DVR shows it being shown on Toon Disney on Wednesday. It seems to show up randomly. Maybe they gone to just using it as filler when they don't what to put in certain spots.

    I've got all the DC animated series on DVD now, but it was cool to see them back on tv.

    my guess is that they only had it while the movies were coming out, lol and thus their contract ran out.

    that, or the kidswb channel i hear that is coming, is picking it up?

    they already have an ondemand thing, with the batman, batman beyond, thundercats, looney tunes, and space ghost *original* and probably others lol

    but yea i wonder if that is what the plan is?

    Too bad Toon Disney sees this program as a filler. I consider this one of the greatest animated series ever made and what the heck is the KidsWB channel? Is it going to be a new cable channel?
