I love “Batman: The Animated Series.” I believe it is THE BEST adaptation of Batman in any way, shape or form outside of comics. To give you an example of how this series impacted me, I will tell you this: Every time I read a comic and see a speech balloon with Batman dialogue, I imagine his voice as performed by Kevin Conroy in The Animated Series. Every time I read words by The Joker in a comic, in my mind I hear his voice as performed by Mark Hamill.
For this reason, here’s a fan art illustration celebrating 25 years of this awesome TV series, featuring The Dark Knight's rogues gallery. I tried to incorporate all the memorable characters that I could fit on the page to represent the symbolic psychology of Batman villains and how they are reflections of his own personality, which I think is always an underlying theme in every version of The Caped Crusader, specially in this series.
This Warner Bros. Animation production developed by Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski originally aired from September 5, 1992, to September 15, 1995. I still remember running back home from school to watch the now classic 90’s Fox Kids lineup that also included “Tiny Toon Adventures” and “Animaniacs”. I personally loved the different title cards for each episode. Those deserve their own art book. There were also follow-up episodes called “The New Batman Adventures” (September 13, 1997 - January 16, 1999) that 2 or 3 smart asses out there like to say is a different series. But not me. For me, it’s a continuation and part of the same “Batman: The Animated Series” universe.
