    I voted for The Batman.
    I really love that show.

    What's curious is that I didn't really like The Batman when it was first announced but then I watched it and I loved it.
    When Brave and the Bold was revealed I went through the same cycle.

    I was a little put out by big, burly Alfred and some of the choices in Beware the Batman, but I figured if I watched it the show would grow on me as the other two did.
    It didn't. :( 



    Perfect description.
    And I think it probably has the best animation of any television cartoon -ever.
    I'm not talking about the character designs. I'm aware some people dislike the designs.
    But the animation was flawless.

    I honestly like all three series.

    The Batman was my first Batman series, I still dig it but it does feel a bit more shallow compared to other series and I hate their Joker design still to this date.

    Brave and the Bold was a whole lot of fun, I hated it intitially but once I saw that it was supposed to be a loving tribute to the silver age of comics, I began to love it and especially Aquaman. OUTRAGEOUS.

    Beware the Batman is pretty great, I like that it has an overarching story and chose to go with more lesser known characters.

    I think I'll vote for Brave and the Bold because it was really Batman + DC which kicks ass.

    It's gotta be Beware. It made Batman dark again while also going back to his detective roots. Plus how could you not love Anarky? Best villain in forever.

    Agreed with the deceptive roots. Defiantly a strong part of the show and that makes up for him getting his ass kicked in the those earlier episodes.

    The Hammers of Justice compel me to vote for TBATB... As Aquaman would say "It's outrageous!"

    All three, in my opinion, have good stuff.

    The Batman had Dracula, a good Clayface story, and Kevin Michael Richardson is a unique (for him) role. I loved him as Joker.

    Beware, sadly, I have not seen much of, but I do like Magpie, and I liked how it tried to focus on lesser known criminals.

    My vote is for Brave and the Bold, for all of the great side characters and team ups.

    1. BatB

    narrowly beating out

    2. The Batman

    and in a distant third place

    3. Beware

    Beware had most of the ingredients to be a great show, but fell way short. Also, the animation was terrible. I liked the tone and I liked the character designs, but the show didn't live up to its potential, imo.

    The Batman. At least up until it started copying TAS.

    I loved the first three seasons of The Batman.
    Season 4 and 5 on the other hand...Eh...

    Brave and the Bold was just plain good old fun from beginning to end. It also made the best version of Aquaman. The show was OUTRAGEOUS! (it had to be done)

    I really liked where Beware was going. A Batman and the Outsiders styled show. Had some real potential behind it, especially evident in the second half and during the League of Assassins three parter. What a shame it was cancelled...

    So yeah, I can't really vote for just one of them.

    THE BATMAN for sure... with Beware 2nd, Brave Bold 3rd.

    I've watched The Batman many times, just love the stories, voices, score, even the designs of the characters.

    The Batman for me. Like others have said, I liked the new take on the characters. I loved the Dark Knight Returns-esque episode.

    The Brave and the Bold never did it for me; couldn't get past the campiness

    Beware the Batman, I gave it a honest try; watched all the episode until the hiatus/cancelation. The show was just plain bad, stories and animation.
