Now we can all relax. After the Schumacherian era of Bat-films,
Bat-fans everywhere developed a nervous twitch any time anyone
mentioned new Bat-movies. But it turns out that Batman Begins
didn't make us hurt. So let us revel.
The entire run of Batman: The Animated Series is on
DVD to provide us with hours of the pure, uncut Bat-tertainment.
So let us rejoice.
But let us never forget.
The 1960s Batman TV series produced a theatrical movie,
and so did the animated series. (This feature covers the long-form
theatrical movies based on each series. But don't fret;
those movies contained the same joys and heartbreaks that their
respective series did, so we'll mention them here.)
It is the perfect Bat-time to celebrate all things Gothamy.
In many ways, the Bat-experience has been captured by the movie
and cartoon makers. But at the same Bat-time, things about them
Schumachered — excuse me — I mean, sucked.
We've put together a sampler of the things that rocked and
didn't in the Bat-films. See if you can think of more,
