and animation go together like… well, Batman and Robin.
the finest example of cartoon capers is the 1990s incarnation of
Batman: The Animated Series. With Kevin Conroy providing the
definitive voice of the caped crusader, Bruce Timm and Eric
Radomski’s noir-ish vision provided Batman fans with the treatment
of their hero that they had longed for, capturing the essence of the
original comic books.
grown-up storylines were met with a colour palette and aesthetic that
had never really been seen before. Demonstrating a deep and genuine
understanding of the DC universe, Batman: The Animated Series would
introduce minor villains to a whole new audience and show that kids’
cartoons could have complicated plotting and adopt witty dialogue and
complex characterisation that didn’t patronise younger viewers.
to both newcomers to Gotham and fanboys alike, the series remains to
this day a high watermark in animation.
