Considering there are several, more serious Batman cartoons still in recent memory, this series can be considered fairly polarizing. Many fans feel that it's a wonderful, tongue-in-cheek throwback to UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks and animated adaptations thereof as well as a way to showcase otherwise less marketable characters. Others think think it's a step backwards from the writing, voice acting, and animation style of the {{Franchise/DCAU}} shows, and feel that it's dumbing things down a little. In either case, the massive number of obscure cameos and canon throwback jokes make the whole series into a big, campy collection of ContinuityPorn.

* AwardBaitSong: Parodied in the musical episode "Mayhem of the Music Meister", with the number "If Only", which plays exactly like a 90s love pop ballad you would have heard at the end of a movie but contains lyrics like "A brave man, like no man, Be my man, Batman... If only he could love me, he could love me, If only he could love me, like he loves fighting villains."

* MsFanservice: All of the women(It doesn't matter whether they are a hero or a villain) who appear in the show qualify. However, A primary example of this trope is definitely The Birds of Prey episode.

'''Batman voiceover:''' Of course, that's just a fancy way of saying "... that's weird."
