Batman: The Animated Series forever altered how kids saw cartoons in the ’90s. It never felt like a kids’ cartoon and consistently transcended the genre. With clever writing, a fantastic score, unique art, and animation, along with iconic voice acting from Kevin Connelly as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Mark Hamill as the Joker, there’s little this show did wrong. Dark, mysterious, and tonally nuanced, it gave us the best depiction of Batman and Bruce Wayne, setting a bar for all future Batman shows to follow. Oh, and did we mention it gave us Batman: Mask of the Phantasm?
