This adaptation of the comic book series of Batman ran originally from September 5, 1992 to September 15, 1995 on Fox Kids for 85 episodes of 22 minutes and 2 seasons.

This series changed the Batman world forever. It spawned a new technique in animation using black backgrounds that would eventually be known as Dark Deco. This technique gave every scene within Gotham an extraordinary look, redefining the image of the city.

It also revamped the classic characters, casting a unique perspective on their origins and personalities. The series included all the popular characters and even created some new ones. The most significant change was the transformation of the Dick Grayson/Robin character in the "new" 90's costume, resulting in a hipper more adult representation which the character had never seen. The Batman character continued to embody the dark image fans have come to love while maintaining the heroic qualities identified with the character.

Another significant change was the transformation of the Rogues Gallery of Villains. From the ever-popular Joker to the more obscure Clock King, the series displayed each villain's unique personality to perfection and introduced new characters, including the popular Ms. Harley Quinn. Although she wasn't born into the Batman universe until the seventh episode of the series, Harley quickly overshadowed such long time favorites as Catwoman and Poison Ivy. Thanks to Batman: TAS, Harley Quinn will be a staple in the Batman genre forever.
