Which series was better?  Personally, I liked the TAS, but this new series is great.  I like the Dr. Strange episode, what a twist.

Batman Beyond was a great concept, and I loved many episode, but I sort of felt it was a little exploitation.

Batman Gotham Knights was a continuation of TAS, but set years later after Dick left and Tim Drake took over as Batman.  That series had some good episodes.

I never liked the Batman cartoons.  I liked the Batman TV show with Adam West, though.  Unlike other superheroes who rely on their powers, at Batman relied on his wits.

The Animated Series, a gritty cartoon with some excellent art and voice acting.

TAS, definitely. Not only was it a great series but it also spawned some decent to excellent (i.e. Mask of the Phantasm) feature-length animations as well.

I really enjoyed TAS, but just to be different I'm going to vote for Batman Beyond, which I felt was a worthy successor, even if some of the futureyness was a bit hokey.

I never really got into Beyond. A shame really, because it had some original stuff in it.

TAS, simply because it's the only one I've seen. I remember watching it when it used to be on Cartoon Network. The animation was really good and it wasn't afraid to have complex stories.
Thinking about it makes me want to buy the DVDs!

These shows don't deserve to be on the same Web-page as Batman: TAS.  That series was a boundry-pushing work of art, and revolutionary on every level.

I refuse to even recognize "The Batman" oh...my...spleen.  Suckage, too much.

Got to go with TAS for the main reason that it helped redifine some of the villians. In particular Mr Freeze who was turned from a villain who had a liking for using ice into a tragic figure. Also introduced a character that became so popular she was added to regular DC cannon (Hell Clerks writer Kevin Smith even named his daughter after her). Also let's not forget Mr Hamil who provided the voice for the Joker, one of my fave versions of the Joker infact.

Batman Beyond was ok and had some interesting episodes (the one with Mr Freeze I liked alot) and from what I hear the Return of the Joker is pretty good.

As fot The Batman, I am really not fond of the character designs and in the episode I have seen it looked like they changed the Joker back from a genuine threat to a cackling freak.

So in conclusion. i go for tAS becuase it changed animated hero shows in so many ways.

TAS is the original, and still the best.  This shouldn't even be a poll.

That said, I also really liked Beyond.  It's a shame that they didn't do more with it.

I liked the last two episodes of The Batman.  Was the guy who could turn back time the Clock King?  That villain never had his villain name mentioned.  This Sat Robert Englund returns to play The Riddler.

I was a huge fan of Batman TAS when I was growing up. Possibly the best thing to ever come out of the Batman universe.

However, I recently caught the Batman Beyond film, "Return of the Joker" and thought it was incredible. Actually on a level with TAS, most likely because it tied up alot of loose ends from the original cartoon.

Now I'm very curious to see some of the Beyond episodes, since I never really saw more than a handful...

I loved The Joining two part episode of The Batman. It featured Lucius Fox, Martian Manhunter and a cameo appearance from some of the JLU members.  The Flash, Green Lantern, Green Arrow and Hawkman.

TAS for all the reasons stated.

Beyond comes second for all the reasons stated.

Not big on The Batman for all the reasons wu_kong stated.

Not sure what Gotham Knights is.  I suspect it was the continuation of TAS after they changed a few things - doesn't really change the order, most probably fits above The Batman.  If it's what I think it is, I think it's possible to argue it's part of TAS, but I'm pretty sure I'd stopped watching the series by then.

TAS is probably one of, if not, the best animated adaptations of a comic book universe. .. for all the reasons previously stated.

TAS was just great it was really noir like and had really cool charcters plus it had the best animation of any of the batman series in my oppinon, although i really enjoyed beyond it had great animation and style plus it played to the darker tones of TAS and i felt it was a good follow up. i hat The Batman though its just weird the penguin knows karate and all the characters seemed beefed up and just dumb

Few superhero shows could match TAS.  I'd put The New Batman Adventures (AKA Gotham Knights) above Batman Beyond in winna's list.

This thread has gotten me all inspired to pop in a TAS DVD and relive the memories.  Eh, screw it...It's getting late.

Yeah, I don't know why there's so much hate for New Batman Adventures. In some ways, I actually prefer it to TAS, and I don't think that the quality of episodes changed at all.

Pitt Clemens recently lent me all four Seasons on DVD, and I had no idea that Season 4 (aka Gotham Knights/NBA) had such good stuff in it. The animated adaptation of the Harley Quinn "Mad Love" is one of the best pieces of animation ever created, and the "Legend of the Dark Knight" where three kids argue about what Batman is really like (one kid imagines the 1940's comical style, and the other imagines the classic Frank Miller comic "Dark Night Returns" ). And much, much more.

Also, Tim Drake is the better Robin.

And Grayson is awesome as Nightwing. 'Nuff said.

Dick Grayson was really pissy and just looked a little to big to be robin it was even more creepier than the idea of a reclusive millionare taking in a child he'd never met ( cough Micheal jackson cough)

Season 5 of THE BATMAN airs today.  Guest starring are Superman, Lois Lane and Lex Luther.  The good news is that George Newbern,  Dana Delany, and Clancy Brown from Superman TAS will reprises their roles for this version.

I also found out that Disney will be airing Batman TAS on Toon Disney starting on September 30.  Personally, I like that, but if Disney is airing it, then most likely they may edit the show down for violence and content.  They did it to Gargoyles when Toon Disney aired episodes and they've done it to classic Disney shows Talespin, Darkwing Duck etc.

Slightly OT but related enough: I'm really glad BBC Four is showing the Adam West series. I've seen only a couple of episodes (and the film) and it's great to be able to tune in regularly.

Watching TAS on Veoh (The Man Who Killed Batman):

Lt Bullock: Hey, Haven't I seen you before?
Disguised as a Lawyer Harley Quinn:I served you a subpoena once. It was a small subpoena.

Lawl. You wouldn't get away with that today on the new DC Cartoons.

TAS by a larger amount than can be measured. I have the first season on DVD, and as soon as I can find the seasons from The Adventures of Batman & Robin and The New Batman Adventures I'll buy those too. Best superhero show ever, and one of the best cartoons.
