Batman the Animated Series (September 5, 1992) was inspired by a variety of previous animated series including the famed Max Fleischer's, Superman produced by Fleischer Studios in the 1940s and based on the artwork of producer and artist Bruce Timm. Timm was also inspired by the various Batman series, both animated and live action. You can see his homages in ...


There are no other canon sources for Batman and his love of French onion soup. However, according to Batman Vol 1 #701 (2010) we find out that Batman's favorite food is mulligatawny soup, not French onion. This may imply that the writters do believe he loves soup, but cannot decide on the type. Alfred: Likewise, master Bruce. A tense few days, but I knew ...


The original storyboards describe them as "Hoods". Hood(lum) #1 and Hood(lum) #2 don't appear to have actual names and don't seem to appear in any subsequent episodes.


Season 1 Episode 18: Beware The Gray Ghost. Time: 21:37, A backdrop, enlarged "People Weekly" magazine cover is hung behind the Gray Ghost as he signs for Bruce and reads "October 19, 1992"


The 1990s, because the Batman animated series is in the same storyline as Batman Beyond, which is in 2039. If it were in the 1950s, then in Batman Beyond he would be like 140, and that is unlikely.


It happens in the episode "What is reality" . Commissioner Gordon gets captured in the virtual world by Riddler. There's puzzle cube he has to solve. Batman knew he couldn't solve the cube in time, so he multiplied himself predicting Riddler would do the same, on the assumption that he could not sustain a collective consciousness and the entire virtual world;...


I don't know that he copies himself, but there was an episode that otherwise fits: His Silicon Soul. Batman stops some guys from robbing a warehouse, but gets hit in the process... and realizes he's a robot Although injured, the fake Batman makes it to Wayne Manor and explores the estate. Alfred catches him and is fooled for a moment. However, when he ...


1944-1948...In an episode of the 3rd season, a reference is made to the class of 1907. 40 years ago... worlds greatest detective!!!


That rule was already broken well before Dini. Harvey Bullock was introduced in the comics, back in 1974 in Detective Comics #441. Also, in the intro to the TV Tropes articles you linked, you'll notice it specifically mentions the DC universe as one of those places where name duplication is likely to happen, due to its size.


Actually they state on the DVD's that the series is heavily influenced by artwork from the 1930's up until the 1950's, and there are a massive amount of references to that time period (References to television shows, certain terminology, the fact that they still have typewriters). Overall I like to think it's set in the fifties, and the dialogue is ...


After reviewing the episode, I have three theories: Crime Cannot Pay Batman is a firm believer in moving within the limits of the law. He repeatedly offered Clayface a chance to have a lawful cure, and could not countenance the cure being done with stolen materials and kidnapped doctors. It was the method, not the cure, that he opposed. The "cure" was ...


I would say that this particular example does not violate the rule. The villian's name is Two-Face and while Batman does call him "Harvey", in many media he is referred to as "Harvey Dent".


I need to agree with most of you all, and I feel too that it takes place during the 1940's-50's. However, I need to point out that in the volume 1 episode "Heart of Ice", Alfred asks Bruce if he's playing video games! So back then, video games never existed, if it were set in the 1940's-50's. Its interesting to analyze, and I think possibly the comic books (...
