All Batman Animated Series in Order

Even though the cinemas are filled with plenty of superhero films, television was the pioneer in bringing comic book characters to life. During the golden age of television, shows featured the action of superheroes and villains with brilliant camera work, writing, and costumes. Comic books were no longer for children or teenagers to consume, but a show they could watch with their families and friends. While Marvel has reigned king of the box office for nearly a decade, they owe a lot of their success to animated and live-action superhero series featuring DC heroes like Superman and Batman.

After the success of the 1966 live-action Batman starring Adam West as the caped crusader, the airwaves needed the Batman. But instead of replicating the genius of the live-action series, the studios went in the direction of animating The Dark Knight. West has reprised his role in several Batman animated series like The Batman (2004), Batman: The Animated Series (1992), and The New Adventures of Batman (1977).

In total, The Dark Knight is the main character or featured in 15 animated projects and voiced by plenty of talented actors, though some of the animated series’ villains, like The Riddler or Harley Quinn, are the ones who steal the show from Bruce Wayne. Below are all the animated series in order, starring or featuring Batman, including a new show premiering this year.

Abrams is behind the Batman: Caped Crusader series and is reimagining the character completely. From the promotional photos, Batman’s broad chin is back and the ears on his mask are the largest they’ve been, though his physique is similar to the latest live action Batman actor, Robert Pattinson. Conroy will be voicing the caped crusader.
