Greetings all! My nieces – age 8 and 11 – want to look at Batman: The Animated Series with me, and I’ve learned no one else in my benighted family has either seen the show nor understands its importance. I want to start them off right. What episodes to you recommend? I’m leaning towards Shadow of the Bat, The Man Who Killed Batman and Joker’s Wild. Any other thoughts?
I might suggest “Appointment in Crime Alley.”
All of those. Along with Appointment in Crime Alley and Christmas with the Joker.
I would second “The Man Who Killed Batman”
I’ll also add “Almost Got 'Im” and “Heart of Ice” to the list.
I would third all those. Also Holiday Knights.
All of those are pretty good recs, but since you mention that they’re nieces, I might also recommend some of the episodes that highlight some of the awesome ladies in the Batman universe, like Harley & Ivy, Zatanna, and Shadow of the Bat.
