* Extensively averted in the season 1 episode "Dawn of the Dead Man", however, though that's appropriate considering all three of the central characters in the episode (including a temporarily dead Batman) are ghosts, and Gentleman Ghost is raising an undead army.

* TheOtherDarrin: Kim Mai Guest replaced Vyvam Pham as Katana. Creator/AdamWest and Julie Newmar replaced Creator/CoreyBurton and Pat Musick as the voice of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Two-Face's one line in "Chill of the Night!" had Richard Moll reprise the role, filling in for James Remar.

Taking its [[ComicBook/TheBraveAndTheBold name]] from DC's traditional TeamUpSeries, ''Batman: The Brave and the Bold'' has Batman partnering with a different superhero or superheroes every week. [[LimelightSeries With a focus on]] rarely used (but classic) characters such as ComicBook/RedTornado, Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man and Detective Chimp, the show picks its plotlines from old [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] stories. The show's creators aim to spotlight every possible underrated aspect of the DC universe. In order to showcase as many heroes and villains as possible, TheTeaser is often a standalone mini-adventure in itself, giving every character a chance to shine.

It's a [[WorldOfHam light-hearted take]] on the DC Comics mythos, with a high gag-per-minute level, very little secret-identity drama, and mainly goofy villains like Clock King and Gorilla Grodd. The massive number of obscure cameos and canon throwback jokes make the whole series into a big, campy collection of ContinuityPorn. In general, it's not that far from the style of the [[Series/{{Batman}} '60s Batman show]]. There's a MusicalEpisode starring Creator/NeilPatrickHarris, a crossover with ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' which also animates an old Magazine/{{MAD}} parody and stars Music/WeirdAlYankovic, and a team-up episode with WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost.

[[LimelightSeries With a focus on]] rarely used (but classic) characters such as ComicBook/RedTornado, Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man and Detective Chimp, the show deliberately picks a lot of its plotlines from old [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] stories, ''many'' of which have already been widely mocked by the fandom for years. The show's creators aim to spotlight every possible underrated aspect of the DC universe. In order to introduce and showcase as many heroes and villains as possible, TheTeaser is often a standalone mini-adventure in itself, giving every character a chance to shine -- and if the audience likes them, they'll be used again in the main plotline.

The show is ''way'' over on the silly side of the SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness, but it also has a number of {{Wham Episode}}s: the show provides its own versions of ''The [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Rainbow Batman]]'' and ''[[Manga/{{Batman}} Bat-Manga!]]'' just as happily as it references ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'' and ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns''.

''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns''.



The show's first season was originally supposed to run for 13 episodes before a break, but it was [[SleeperHit so well received]] that the break until the next episode aired was shortened to a single week, extending the first season well past its original run. After three excellent seasons, the creators decided to wrap up the show, instead of risking SeasonalRot if they'd continue. A darker CGI series dubbed ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman'' succeeded it in 2013.

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 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.
