    Do I have this straight? There were 80 episodes of Batman: The Animated Series. Then, there were 5 of The Adventures of Batman and Robin (this series also included a bunch from the earlier series with the new theme song on the front). After that, the were 24 episodes of Gotham Knights. so between the various modern batman series, there were 109 episodes.

    Since the series are somewhat distinct, I'd like to see the first series released in 4 sets of 20, a single-disc release for Batman and Robin, then a single set for both seasons of Gotham Knights.

    There were many fine episodes from the first season(s), but the shows i really want are the Gotham Knights eps.

    so i'm still going to have to wait a while methinks.

    Good news, if it pans out. Now, how about Pinky and the Brain (including episodes from Animaniacs)?

    Bubba Bo Bob Brain. [​IMG] That was some great TV.

    Hopefully, the first set will only include all the episodes released so far so that those of us who were naive enough to figure that this would be the release format don't have to double dip to get the rest of the episodes.

    The Dventures of Batman and Robin had a different theme song and a somewhat different writing style (seemed to eb aimed at a younger audience), so wouldn't it count seperately?

    I've always been a bigger Supes fan, but I look forward to collecting both of these. I know Superman was much less successful, according to TV Tome they had just over 50 episodes. I may have only seen about half, so I'm psyched!

    Yeah, any research on their part would tell them that season sets were the preferred format by the fans who remember it when it originally aired. So many people remember Batman TAS fondly. Let's hope this happens.

    Incidentally, have they given a release date for Mystery of the Batwoman?

    I'd love to see a bunch of the original Filmation cartoons on DVD. All I've got is a VHS with five episodes. They weren't great but they had atmosphere, and the music was brilliant.

    I'll pick these up for sure! I wouldn't mind if they put them out in chronological volumes, as opposed to true seasons if it would keep the cost down. With all the TV product coming out, it's getting really hard on the wallet.

    Hey guys, if your Bat-Fans then you'll love the exclusive feature running in DVD ETC. Magazine next month. We feature independent film maker/writer/creator/director Sandy Collora and his new film: BATMAN: Dead End. The feature is titled, "The Coolest DVD You'll Never Own" and it is Batman as he was meant to be seen--not some wimpy actor wannabe. Anyway, it has a huge underground following right now and there's talk that all the chaos may result in Collora bringing his Batman to the big screen.
