    I had heard some of the Batman animated series was being released on dvd. Does anyone know when and how many episodes are coming?

    4/23. The five episodes, presented in production order, are:

    On Leather Wings

    Christmas with the Joker

    Nothing to Fear

    The Last Laugh

    Pretty Poison

    Hopefully the second set won't be structured in the same way, as we'd wind up with half of a two-parter (Two-Face: Part One), what is arguably the worst episode of the series (The Underdwellers), and two lackluster episodes (The Forgotten and Be A Clown). The set's only saving grace would be P.O.V.

    The distribution of episodes is so wildly uneven that season sets don't make any sense. I agree, though, that a much larger number of episodes per release would be greatly preferable.

    Your first tape is in correct order but On Leather Wings wasn't the first show that aired. Following FEET OF CLAY pt2 came It's never too late, and Joker's Favor. The rest on tape 2 are out of order.
    Since I'm currently running a contest that asks a similar question, I can't say the fist [​IMG]

    I thought this disc was merely a test disc to see if theres a market for season box sets, like what they're doing with B5.

    anthony i didn't know you had a contest going. i'll have to look at your site more often. the reason i was asking was because the eps on the dvd are stated as being released in production order or words to that affect.

    so while i was going though a box of my old tapes i found tapes with about all the episodes on them. including the tapes that i have titles as "tape I" AND "tape II ".

    a always reembered that the first show aired on a sunday night at 7 eastern time. but the more i think about it i think my copy of that show whatever it was got messed up in some way. so now i cant remember what that first airing was.

    no way i could guess the last show to air the first season.

    the first season had 55 shows. didnt it/

    The first episode aired? That's an easy one... the two-parter "The Cat and the Claw, Part I" aired first. The IMDB has the airdates, and if I'm not mistaken they're also printed in Batman: Animated along with the episode capsules.

    The episodes in this DVD collection are, without a glimmer of a doubt, in order. They are presented in production order, though.
    I believe Tony is correct and that On Leather Wings did get aired on a Friday at 7 PM, shortly before the first part of The Cat And The Claw. I haven't been able to find any verification of this in any of the number of episode guides floating around online, but I'm positive that's the case.

    Wasnt Heart Of Ice the first Episode to air?

    I think you guys are correct, and these are in the order of Production not Airdates.

    What I recall most about the episode "Heart of Ice" was that a segment of it was incorporated onto the demo disc which came with my original Panasonic 3D0 videogame system.
    Which I still have. Which I hooked back up a few weeks ago. Which I played the segment on the demo disc.
    All-in-all, not bad quality, all things considered. No way it would be acceptable by today's standards, though! [​IMG]

    Here are two Batman episode lists, one in production order and one in broadcast order:
    Production Order
    Broadcast Order
    Both orders have problems with breaking up certain two-parters. Cartoon Network always aired them in broadcast order but with the two-parters kept together. I imagine the DVDs would do that as well.

    I'm obviously going by memory here, so I'm very likely wrong. [​IMG] Did that Sunday broadcast of On Leather Wings air at night? If it did, that would seem to be what I had in mind.

    Okay. I do remember catching both previews, but I guess my memory's just faulty as to which one came first.

    Sadly, before the series first aired, my thought was, "the guy from Rachel Gunn R.N. is voicing Batman?"

    What don't you people get? Season sets wouldn't work for this show. It doesn't have standard seasons like sitcoms and standard dramas do. The first season had like 60 episodes, then the rest didn't break 20. That would look awfully funny sale wise.
    I agree that each set should have more discs/episodes though.
