Batman: The Animated Series was an Emmy Award-winning animated series that ran from 1992 to 1995 on FOX Kids, effectively beginning the DCAU. The series focused on the exploits of Batman and his crusade against injustice in modern-day Gotham City, a dark, gothic, crime-ridden area. It was arguably a children's show, yet its dark atmosphere and acclaimed writing grew a more mature fanbase. In 1994, the series was retitled The Adventures of Batman & Robin. It now featured Robin more prominently, in an attempt to appeal to children even more. Despite the new title and extra focus on Robin, the tone and writing of the series was not adversely affected.

In 1997, a sequel series titled The New Batman Adventures would continue with the same creative crew and characters, but with an even greater focus on Batman's supporting cast and new revamped character designs in order to match the style of Superman: The Animated Series.

In January 2009, IGN dubbed Batman: The Animated Series the second best animated television series.[1]
