Batman TAS 20 Anniversary

it's hard to believe this excellent tv show is now 20 years old. I remember seeing the promos and not being sure how to take it. but once the first episode aired ("On Leather Wings") I knew this would be pretty good. after about a week or so I knew it would be great. this is a fun little clip of the villains discussing issues with Batman, and has one of my favorite lines in the series.

I didn't like some of the changes they made to various characters at first, but after a while I realized this wasn't quite the same "universe" as the comics and then I was fine. I still get a little tired of fanboys over enthusiasm about Harley Quinn, even though I love the character on this show. a lot of that goes to the voice acting. sure, there are some episodes that are not so great, but that's like ten of them.

I love that show. Its style was amazing and even though they tried to imitate the look they have never been able to duplicate it class. The only other American Cartoons that elicited such a sense of beauty to me were the old Fleischer Superman cartoons
