Unlike the 1960s live action Batman series that came before it, this series is actually true to the characters. No shark spray, no Holy (insert word here) from Robin, no running with a giant cartoonish bomb, no fight title cards like bang and bam, etc. This is the real deal. Batman is my all-time favorite superhero and I think that they did a great job with this series. Batman, Nightwing, Robin, and Batgirl are awesome and so are the super villains especially Batman's arch nemesis Joker. The action and animation are very well done. Even the super villains have tragic origin stories. This series introduced two characters that later appeared in comics, Lock-Up and Harley Quinn.
