Batman - The Animated Series, Vol. 1 ???

I always hate when things come out with Volume instead of Season. So what my question is is this Season 1 or what? Any help would be cool.

The first season was about 65 episodes (the standard for a weekday series back then). The DVD set has 28 episodes. Seems perfectly reasonable to me.

Basically, Warner Bros could give us Vol. 1, which contains about as many episodes as most season sets, for the price of most season sets, or the ful 65 episode season for $100 bucks.

I think they made the right choice.

So anyone know if they plan on releasing all the other episodes from the rest of the first season, or am I jumping the gun by asking? I got STL for this a while ago, and I think I might just preoder it, even though I never preorder, because I love this series.

Also worth noting, the entire series is only 85 episodes. If they released the entire first season all at once that wouldn't leave much for a second release.

Hopefully they'll release the newer series (Gotham Knights) on DVD too, because I always liked that one and felt it a good follow up to the original series. I want all 100+ episodes from both series before all is said and done.

From what I've heard/read is that WB will release three (3) volumes of approx. 28-29 episodes each. Which would be two with 28 episodes, and one with 29 episodes. 28+28+29=85.

The current Vol. 1 will contain the first 28 episodes of Season 1. They will not be in the correct airing order, but fairly close to production number order. The two-parters are going to be grouped together instead of split up as they were when originally aired.

The episodes on this volume will be:
  1. ON LEATHER WINGS
  2. CHRISTMAS WITH THE JOKER
  3. NOTHING TO FEAR
  4. THE LAST LAUGH
  5. PRETTY POISON
  6. THE UNDERDWELLERS
  7. P.O.V.
  8. THE FORGOTTEN
  9. BE A CLOWN
  10. TWO FACE PART 1
  11. IT'S NEVER TOO LATE
  12. I'VE GOT BATMAN IN MY BASEMENT
  13. CAT AND CLAW PART 1
  14. HEART OF ICE
  15. SEE NO EVIL
  16. CAT AND CLAW PART 2
  17. TWO FACE PART 2
  18. BEWARE THE GRAY GHOST
  19. PROPHECY OF DOOM
  20. FEAT OF CLAY PART 1
  21. FEAT OF CLAY PART 2
  22. JOKER'S FAVOR
  23. VENDETTA
  24. FEAR OF VICTORY
  25. CLOCK KING
  26. APPOINTMENT IN CRIME ALLEY
  27. MAD AS A HATTER
  28. DREAMS IN DARKNESS

However, those split two-parters will be ordered together.

According to tvshowsondvd.com that's not the order that the episodes will be on the discs. They'll be close to production order, but the two part epidods will be back to back.

How many episodes in total?

And would this include the show's "revamps"? As in Batman and Robin, and the other one with the animation revamps?

Be curious if they will consider them the same..

Yes, I know. That's the order from batmantas.com.

I listed them like that to illustrate the supposed correct order.

However, I've seen an entirely different order on pazsaz.com

When Robin joined/started appearing in the show, they changed the name of the show from just Batman: The Animated Series to the The Adventures of Batman & Robin. But it is included in the 85 episode count.

However, the animation revamp I think you're referring to was titled under The NEW Adventures of Batman/Superman. It was an enitrely different show. It contained 27 episodes. 16 in Season, and 11 in Seasom 2.

Be curious if they will consider them the same..
Well, as I said above, they're not the same.

Robin was always part of the show; he just didn't appear in every episode (the episode with his origin was told in flashback). Starting with the 2nd seaosn Fox insisted that Robin appear in every episode, prompting the name change to "The Adventures of Batman & Robin".

Wow - only 2 seasons? Geeze, it seemed like that thing ran FOREVER! I would have sworn that it ran for 11 seasons easy. . . .

Still, they've got my money. I am SO there.

I'm definately buying this ! The Animated Batman from this series is the best non-comic portrayal of the Batman character ever in my opinion. They did a fabulous job with this show.

A small gripe though, I'm not really crazy about the dvd cover art. It's not very classy looking. I'd prefer something more "Dark Knight"-ish.

You guy's don't know your Batman..

First off, Robin came into the series very early, as you can see in 'Robin's Reckoning', but he was not constant until 'The New Adventures of Batman and Robin', he was off and on... However, the series is all considered one series, just with a couple name changes and a animation revamp due to budget constraits... WB has said they plan on releasing all of the series over time, including the later one's with a younger Tim Drake (Robin) and Dick Grayson as NightWing.

Only when they originally aired on Fox. Fox actually renamed the whole show "The Adventures of Batman & Robin", including the first 65 episodes. The repeats on Cartoon Network called all 85 original episodes "Batman: The Animated Series".

That was the third production season which aired on Kids WB. Most people call it "The New Batman Adventures" (those episodes originally aired along with Superman as "The New Batman/Superman Adventures"). There were technically 24 of them, making the grand total 109 episodes.

Well, I must admit that I don't know my Batman. I didn't watch the show when it aired. However due to the excitement surrounding the release of this Volume 1 set, I have been doing my research over the Internet and what I stated above was what I came to understood. However, I admit that I haven't read every episode synopsis, so that may account for me not knowing when Robin was in an episode.

Im really happy to finally get this, although i am kind of mad that i already have the first 10 or so episodes of this set because all of the original 1 disc releases. Oh well, as long as they release all of the episodes i will be happy.
