    Not even putting Batman The Animated Series or Batman Beyond because they would just dominate the poll and it would not be fun. So out of the three Batman shows we have had this century that are not DCAU related what is your favorite.

    Got to go with Brave and the Bold. Fun and exciting with so many great references probably gave me a reason to get into the comics more to enjoy all the references.

    Then Beware the Batman which is a dark take of course and although it has gotten screwed by the dickheads at Cartoon Network the first 11 episodes that I got to see are interesting takes on the dark knight with the lesser known villains. Thank you Toonmai for being so close to the new episodes!

    The Batman is in dead last. Not horrible but unlike the previous two its not super dark or super fun. Its in the middle and the doesn't work for me. Batman needs to be one extreme of the other this one falls to much in the middle.

    It would be Beware the Batman for me. It's the first Batman show in years since the DCAU ended that I really got into.

    Beware. I never really cared for The Batman or Brave and the Bold.

    Brave and Bold for sure. When you finish watching that show, you'll have learned so much about the DC universe and you'll have had a great laugh while doing it.

    I don't think I have watched enough of any of them to decisively choose one over the other.

    i am going to go beyond the question; and say favorite other batman animated show is challenge of the super powers.

    brave and the bold was fun for a parody. the batman was fun. but i do not really like futuristic batman. i prefer batman set in a period piece. or the present. so all the future tech bugged me. besides it all looked expensive. and only bruce could afford all that stuff. lol

    and beware the batman, really wasn't that great. batman felt like he had all his life sucked out of him. making Katana, and young barb the only characters i cared about.

    I liked Beware, and wished it would have kept going, but I voted for B:BATB, because it was all-around great.

    It's The Batman that I never connected with.

    The Batman is my favorite

    I watched one episode of Beware and despised it.

    Brave and the Bold would be the easy answer, but I voted The Batman. I just loved the series, and it only got better with each passing season.

    Brave and Bold. It's just so fun and adventurous, something very few hero shows nowadays are able to pull off.

    Brave and the Bold; easily. One could almost of titled it the Batman, Blue Beetle and Aquaman Power Hour or something. It was awesome.

    Brave and the Bold. Perfect blend of Lighthearted and serious moments, fun as hell, and a nice dive into an extensive DC universe.

    Only watched first couple episodes of The Batman so I can't say much, I do like Beware though.

    The Batman is criminally underrated. Constantly growing in scale each season and having awesome redesigns for well known villains was something I always loved about that show.

    Brave and the Bold. A major reason is this guy:

    The Batman was good too, I still love Batman Vs. Dracula.

    Beware the Batman for me. It gives Batman some depth to this characterization and actually gives him character development throughout the show, something even B:TAS forgot to do at times. The use of never-used Batman villains is ambitious and risky, but ends up paying off in the long-run. The second half of the series is particularly strong, and I can't wait for US viewers to see it (unless they already did via the internet or iTunes).

    Brave and the Bold is a lot of fun. One of the most enjoyable shows I've seen. Though I can't, in good faith, call it a "Batman show". Most memorable moments were dealing with the DCU instead of the Batman-centered stories, "Chill of the Night" aside.

    The Batman had some good ideas and moments here and there, but they were drowned in a sea of mediocrity.
