Batman - Heart of Ice

In honor of Batman‘s 75th Anniversary we turn out attention back to the Dark Knight’s more memorable moments on the big and small screen with another episode from Batman: The Animated Series. Widely regarded as one of the best episodes of the series, “Heart of Ice” was the first episode of the series written by Paul Dini and the first directed by Bruce Timm. The episode also went a long way to establish Mr. Freeze as more than just a throwaway B-list Bat-villain and reinterpret the character as a tragic figure hellbent on revenge.

Batman - Be a Clown

In honor of Batman‘s 75th Anniversary we turn out attention back to the Dark Knight’s more memorable moments on the big and small screen with another episode from Batman: The Animated Series. An offhand comment by Mayor Hill (Lloyd Bochner) comparing the Joker (Mark Hamill) to Batman (Kevin Conroy) gets under the Clown Prince of Crime’s skin inspiring the criminal to crash the birthday party of Hill’s son Jordan (Justin Shenkarow) as Jekko the Clown (Jim Cummings).

Batman - Two-Face

In honor of Batman‘s 75th Anniversary we turn out attention back to the Dark Knight’s more memorable moments on the big and small screen with another episode from Batman: The Animated Series. Originally created in 1942 Harvey Dent (originally named Harvey Kent) was Gotham’s good looking District Attorney who lost his sanity after having acid thrown into his face during trial. Having already established a friendship between Bruce Wayne (Kevin Conroy) and Harvey Dent (Richard Moll) in “Pretty Poison,” the two-parter focuses on Harvey’s transformation into one of Batman’s most dangerous villains. One of the more interesting choices the writers of Batman: The Animated Series made when introducing Harvey Dent was to give the character pre-existing mental problems well before his transformation into Two-Face (something later comic versions have chosen to adopt as well).

Batman - The Last Laugh

In honor of Batman‘s 75th Anniversary we turn out attention back to the Dark Knight’s more memorable moments on the big and small screen with another episode from Batman: The Animated Series. Drawing on both the mix of a classic comic story and the set-up of the climax of Tim Burton’s Batman, “The Last Laugh” brings the Joker (Mark Hamill) back to Gotham on April Fools’ Day to gas the entire populace using an innocuous-looking garbage scow which allows the villain a free run at mischief, mayhem, and robbery.

Batman - Pretty Poison

In honor of Batman‘s 75th Anniversary we turn out attention back to the Dark Knight’s more memorable moments on the big and small screen with another episode from Batman: The Animated Series. “Pretty Poison” introduces us not only to Poison Ivy (Diane Pershing) for the first time but also Gotham’s new District Attorney Harvey Dent (Richard Moll) who is dating Pamela Isley at the beginning of the episode unaware of the woman’s true motives. When Harvey is poisoned at dinner by an unusual toxin derived from an extinct rose, Batman (Kevin Conroy) begins taking a closer look at his friend’s main squeeze.

Batman - Beware the Gray Ghost

In honor of Batman‘s 75th Anniversary we turn out attention back to the Dark Knight’s more memorable moments on the big and small screen with one of the best episodes from Batman: The Animated Series. Written specifically for Adam West, Beware the Gray Ghost stands out for far more reasons than just its perfectly-cast guest-star. The episode offers insight into young Bruce Wayne‘s (Kevin Conroy) childhood heroes and is one of the only episodes in any Batman animated series to showcase happy flashbacks to a time before the murder of Bruce’s parents.
