Adventures of Batman (1968)

These lighthearted cartoons from the late 1960s were sometimes paired with animated Superman episodes for a full hour of heroic fun. As always, the Dark Knight fights for good, with Bruce Wayne and his ward Dick Grayson becoming the Dynamic Duo.

      Comments about Adventures of Batman (1968):

      The very first animated adventures of The Caped Crusaders,the series debuted on Sept 14,1968 as "THE BATMAN-SUPERMAN HOUR" on the CBS network's Saturday morning line-up,shortly after the ABC/Twentieth Century Fox TV series with Adam West and Burt Ward ended its network run in March 1968.
      in this series,titled as "The Adventures Of Batman & Robin",it features a two-parter episode,and a single episode. as this was the very first Batman cartoon series,it was a straight,serious action-adventure format,closely based on the then current Batman comic books of the late 1960s. produced by Ducovny Productions and Filmation Associates,this animated version featured the voices of Olan Soule' and Casey Kasem as "Bruce Wayne/Batman" and "Dick Grayson/Robin" while future "THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW" co-star Ted Knight,then,a voiceover man for many Filmation produced cartoons during that studio's early history,voiced all the Batman villains,and narrated the episodes,while Filmation voice veteran Jane Webb took on the voices of "Catwoman" and "Batgirl/Barbara Gordon". the episodes were well written,and the character designs were mostly based on master comic book artist Carmine Infantino's drawings,and the standard limited animation that Filmation was known for,did an okay job for its budget. some 38 episodes were produced,when the cartoon ran as part "THE BATMAN-SUPERMAN HOUR" format,sharing the series with "SUPERMAN" episodes,along with reruns from that show's previous seasons (1966-67) in Fall 1970,Warner Bros.Television had syndicated the Filmation shows under the title of "BATMAN/SUPERMAN/AQUAMAN" for both domestic and international markets,with a total of 65 half hour
      shows in total! during the debut of "SESAME STREET" on PBS in late 1969,some Filmation shorts of "BATMAN" and "SUPERMAN" were made for this now Emmy-winning children's series,but during its CBS run,"THE ADVENTURES OF BATMAN & ROBIN" was repackaged and reran for Sunday mornings in Fall 1969.
