You gotta feel for the Riddler and Penguin. I mean, all of Batman's villians were goofy rejects, but most had SOMETHING going for them! The Joker was a psychotic clown with a penchant for purple coattails and big hammers, Catwoman was a master thief with a cool car and a gang of men that loved working with her so much they wore light-blue catsuits, and Mr. Freeze...well...froze things. But then comes Riddler, a guy in an unflattering green jumpsuit who actually GIVES CLUES TO BATMAN! The World's Greatest Detective! And who could forget the menace of the Penguin? Short, overweight socialite with a big nose and an unhealthy love of umbrellas. It was only a matter of time before these two jokes got together to try to put the hurt on Batman. Maybe they were tired of being laughed at by the other villians and they needed to work with someone who was equally dorky. Whatever it was, it made for a great show! This is one of my faves. It seems that it's public knowledge that Batman and Bruce Wayne have the same birthday. Call me kooky, but that strikes me as something Batman might want to keep on the hush-hush. But don't worry Bat-fans, it all works out in the end. The best scene is when Batman and Robin bury Riddler in cereal! Fun loving Batman rules!

These boys could dress. Joker and Penguin were Batman's most stylish villians(well, in their mind). The dapper duo must have the same tailor. In any case, any episode with the Joker is a good one. You can't go wrong with the Clown Prince of Crime. And seeing Batman and Robin fighting circus animals is always fun.

Excellent in it's own right

First off, I love superheroes. Especially Superhero cartoons. Cartoons are argualbly the perfect medium for our spandex-wearing chums. It can take the wonderful out of this world artwork and mentality of comic books, add movement and voices, and costs less than a summer blockbuster to make. Not to mention seeing a new episode every week is always a good thing. That being said, this show rocks. I was raised in the 80's and grew up with Superfriends, possibly one of the best cartoon series ever produced. It had the world's greatest heroes fighting a new challenge every week, introduced new ones (Black Vulcan was my favorite, even though they should have called him Black Lightning like he was in the comics), and entertained countless individuals over the years. A lot of people bash the series, I am not one of those people. Of course it had flaws, but what doesn't? And it was always entertaining, and was often unintentionally funny. After that, we had to wait almost a decade before a great new superhero cartoon came along in the form of Batman: The Animated Series. The excellent Superman cartoon came a few years later, and once again, the folks at Warner Brothers Animation have come up with the magic. It introduced Wonder Woman to the new cartoon series, as well as Martian Manhunter, Hawkgirl, and the John Stewert Green Lantern. Flash was always one of my faves, and he's great here. I will have to agree with the first reviewer in that Superman is less powerful, and Green Lantern isn't too creative with old sparky. Yes, while I wish they would make Superman a little more powerful, I understand that with a team dynamic, story wise it might be best for him not to be Uberpowerful. Even if you read JLA comics, he's not as powerful as he is in the regular Superman comics, so I understand. He should still be a little more powerful though. Batman rocks, Wonder Woman is spectacular (I like her attitude towards others, she is practically a God, after all), John's cool. I'm not a big Hawk-person in general, but Hawkgirl's alright. In terms of Green Lantern, I think the character's use of his ring reflects his personlity perfectly. He's a seasoned warrior, been all around the universe, and has a professional feel to him, so he WOULD be very short and straight to the point with his ring. He's not wasting any time. Granted, giant green boxing gloves are pretty, but a laser blast is just as effective. I know that I prefer the Hal Jordan version, but I'm happy with John. He brings something to the table. His character and Flash play off with each other just the way I would want. They make a great team, if not just to watch. This cartoon has a great widescreen feel to it, and it's my new favorite. Don't compare this to any superhero cartoons that came before, instead, enjoy it in it's own right. Watch Superfriends. Watch the filmation classics of Batman, Superman, Aquaman, etc. And watch Justice League.
