* BrakeAngrily: In "House And Garden," Pamela "Poison" Ivey has apparently rehabilitated and has married her doctor, Professor Steven Carlyle, to help him raise his twin sons. Batman thinks Ivy may still be up to something when a number of wealthy bachelors succumb to a mysterious toxin, but all his leads come up zilch. Driving back to the Batcave, Robin tells Batman that Prof. Carlyle actually has twin ''girls''. '''''SCREEEEEEECHHHHH!!!!'''''

[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin As the title suggests]], the series is an animated adaptation of the adventures of the popular comic book character Franchise/{{Batman}}. It drew heavily from the Denny O'Neil/Neal Adams era in the 70s and the [[Film/{{Batman}} live-action films]] directed by Creator/TimBurton (although some of the latter's baggage, such as the mutated version of the Penguin, caused them some problems). The often-minimalist look of the show was largely influenced by the 1940s WesternAnimation/SupermanTheatricalCartoons, with character designs resembling those of Creator/JackKirby, [[ComicStrip/DickTracy Chester Gould,]] and Alex Toth. The resulting product, revolutionary for its time, was dubbed "dark deco"; it was also the result of co-producer Eric Radomski's standing order to the animators that all backgrounds be drawn with light colors on black paper (instead of dark colors on white paper, as is the industry standard) to ensure that the artwork stayed as dark as possible. Head producer Bruce Timm -- who also took on other roles -- carried his design style over into other shows, thus making ''Batman: The Animated Series'' the first entry in the fully-realized canon known as the Franchise/{{DCAU}}.

Four completely different [[LicensedGame Licensed Games]] based on the series were released in 1995 for the SuperNintendo, UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, UsefulNotes/SegaCD, and UsefulNotes/GameGear, [[NamesTheSame all titled]] ''VideoGame/TheAdventuresOfBatmanAndRobin''. Also, while it's not officially part of Franchise/TheDCAU, the 2009 video game ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' is (in some ways) considered a DarkerAndEdgier spiritual successor; Creator/PaulDini returned to write the script, while Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, and Arleen Sorkin (Harley Quinn) reprised their characters from the original series. The game was so popular it led to two sequels and a prequel, respectively ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' and ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins''.

** Batman himself becomes less traditionally heroic and more of a [[TheStoic cold, pessimistic individual]] throughout the entire Franchise/{{DCAU}}. His relentless dedication to fighting crime at the cost of his own happiness, as well as his increasingly standoffish personality alienates many of his allies and love interests, which leads to him becoming the bitter, old recluse seen in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''.

* OffModel: Not strange for a series like this where multiple companies would be used, but most evident whenever {{Creator/Sunrise}} or Creator/{{AKOM}} animated an episode. Constant issues regarding this was what got both studios fired from the series.[[note]]The studios, in addition to the aforementioned AKOM and Sunrise included Creator/TMSEntertainment, Creator/SpectrumAnimation, Creator/JadeAnimation, Creator/KokoEnterprises, Creator/StudioJunio and Blue Pencil Animation; with assistance from Creator/MrBigCartoons, [=NOA=] Animation, with further (uncredited) assistance by Creator/TamaProductions, Creator/HongYing, Creator/NakamuraProductions, Creator/DASTCorparation, Creator/AnimeSpot, and Creator/SunminAnimation[[/note]]
