If you like the old voices, check out this set. I love it because I grew up watching it every Saturday morning but I know that a lot of people can't stand Bat-Mite.
Does that hold up watching it today? I remember watching that Saturday mornings. They even used a similar design of the Batmobile from the '66 series.

If you still enjoy watching cartoons from that era, then it holds up fine in my opinion. It is just as silly as the TV show but you will recognize several of the other voices as the standard 4 people who seemed to do all the cartoons back then.

I love it. But I also still enjoy watching the original Land Of The Lost as well. I may not be the best opinion to listen to.

I absolutely love the Batman and Scooby-Doo cartoon team-ups from the 70s. The biggest influence on them was clearly the '66 Batman.

Paul Reubens made Bat-Mite FUN on B:TB&TB.
In my opinion "The Legend of the Dark Mite" episode written by Paul Dini is the GREATEST BATMAN STORY EVER TOLD in any medium.
The guy who voiced Bat-Mite on the 70's toon was just plain annoying. And the character was written poorly.

Looking forward to BATMAN: THE RETURN OF THE CAPED CRUSADERS
My main concern is how Julie Newmar will sound as Catwoman.
I thought her voice was a bit rough when she voiced MARTHA WAYNE on B:TB&TB. "Chill of the Night".

Grrrr...it looks like they are raising the prices again. Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders will be $17.99 on release week at Target. This is probably the one I'm least excited about, but I don't really want to miss one of the steelbook releases.

Yup, up by a dollar compared to The Killing Joke. I'll still be trying to pick up some of the steelbooks. If this gets good reviews I want at least one for myself.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

The IGN review sounded pretty positive. Sounds like if you're a fan of the 66 series you'll like it which shouldn't be too much of a surprise. I'll try to grab the Steelbook if I can find it.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

Just can't get into this one and I'll probably sit it out. However, I'll probably regret it like Justice League: War (which I really regret) or Throne of Atlantis (sorta regret, lol). I dunno, maybe I'll change my mind...it's just hard for me to go through all of the same things I usually do for an Adam West Batman animated flic. It probably is good, just not for me. Good luck to those getting it.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

Since we are getting 3 - 4 releases a year now, I'll probably sit out on a few as well. A couple already feel like wasted purchases to me since I probably won't watch them again (like Gods & Monsters and Justice League vs Teen Titans). Since they are $18 a pop now, it doesn't make sense dropping almost $80 a year just to keep the collection going.

They also feel like they have lost some of their impact as years go by. I remember watching Under the Red Hood for the first time and being blown away, and I haven't really felt that way again since around Doom & Dark Knight Returns.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I almost forgot that Return of the Caped Crusader came out today. Got ready in a hurry and made it to Target as they opened. They had six copies of the Steelbook and one regular Blu Ray copy. It's a nice looking Steelbook - those sixties era orange and yellow colors pop.
I agree that four releases a year is too many. But I haven't stopped quite yet.

As usual the local Target had not even put these out this morning. Had seven steelbooks total when brought out from the back.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

The steelbook for "Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders" is flat-out gorgeous and I wouldn't be surprised if my Target already sold out. I had to buy it for sentimental reasons. I own the "Batman: The Complete Television Series" Limited Edition set and "Batman: The Movie," so this was a no-brainer. It'll just be nice to hear Adam West, Burt Ward reprise their roles for what will likely be the very last time.

They are fast-tracking a sequel, so it will not be the last time West and Ward do the voices.

Well, that's good 'cause it was somewhat fun to watch... but you can definitely hear an age-related quiver in Adam West's voice. They need to fed him a Zipfizz before the next voice-over work.

Snagged the last copy of the Return of the Caped Crusaders Steelbook from Target. Luckily I checked this thread as I had completely forgot it was out this week. One of the best Steelbooks I've gotten for one of these DC animated films.

No Steelbooks at my local Target. Oh well, I will just wait until the regular edition hits 10 bucks or less.

Steelbook exclusive not available separately online. Best you can do is verify they have copies available at each store of either version.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I haven't watched much of this yet, but I am really glad that they've finally made a family-friendly PG rated movie in this series. I have a lot of little Batman fans coming to my office and while I can't show Dark Knight or any previous DCU movies on the Roku in my office (I have it limited to PG-or-under titles), this one is fair game. From what I'm hearing, the kids like it.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I got super lucky today. Having been busy all this week I thought there was no chance I would get the Caped Crusaders steelbook. Having resigned myself to the ordinary BD, I found a mint steelbook copy hidden behind the regular copies today. Halloween candy was also reduced to 70% off.

I'll take this small victory after fruitlessly chasing around other DC steelbooks on release day.

It looks like their next release is Justice League Dark. Coming February 7th and rated R. I guess it worked out for them with The Killing Joke.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

After all the talk about Killing Joke being R the rating didn't seem warranted when I watched it.

I've posted before that people looking for these DC steelbooks should always look in-between all the other normal copies. I've seen with my own eyes that the incoming boxes are filled randomly (when we have been there at opening as were the first to ask for these). So anybody stocking the shelves could load them on the shelves in the same random order.
