The Best Batman Animated Series Which is the Original

Unlike its 1977 successor, THE ADVENTURES OF BATMAN isn’t terrible.

Check out its opening segment narrated by news anchor Ted Baxter/Judge Smails himself…

 

Of course, I’m probably tremendously biased as I watech this animated Batman TV series — which is historically significant because it was the first one — as a child on Saturday mornings.

Since it’s 34 episodes aired on TV (in various incarnations) from 1968 to 1969, the 3 (but most likely 4) year old Jett remembers watching it during that run.  This is me as a 3-year-old in 1968…

I also remember the 2 “public safety” clips that were shown on SESAME STREET featuring this show’s Batman and Robin, like…

“Crossing the Street”…

 

And “Up, Through, and Around”…

 

Trust me, the 3-year-old (but most likely 4) Jett took these two shorts very seriously.

And I still do today.

And so should you.
