The Adventures of Batman

The Adventures of Batman

Hard on the heels of the campy, 1966 Batman television adaptation came Filmation's first attempt to animate the Dynamic Duo (and sometimes Batgirl) and their array of Kooky Criminals. This animated effort generally followed the tone of the show: campy, with the villains veering towards silly rather than serious. Ted Knight supplied most the voices for the male villains. With two exceptions - Simon, The Pieman and the Judge - all of these villains come straight from the pages of the various Batman comic books, although not all of them appear here as portrayed there, especially in recent years when the comic has taken a darker turn than it had when these episodes were created.

Voiceover from Theme

The adventures of Batman, with Robin, the Boy Wonder!

Batman and Robin, the Dynamic Duo against crime and corruption, whose real identities as millionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne and his young ward Dick Grayson and known only to Alfred, the faithful butler.

Ever alert, they respond swiftly to a signal from the police, and moments later, from the secret Batcave deep beneath Wayne Manor, they roar out to protect life, limb and property as Batman and Robin, caped crimefighters!

Batman and Robin, scourge of Gotham City's kooky criminals: The Joker, Clown Prince of Crime - The Penguin, pudgy purveyor of perfidy - and the cool, cruel, Mr. Freeze!

Watch out, villains, here come... Batman and Robin!
