Hello everybody, Before we get started on a character of a week, here’s 2 different documentary of behind the scene of Batman The Animated Series.
The first video is a hour and 30 minutes long while the second video is about 4 minutes long, on voice acting.
Young Bruce Wayne witness his Parent’s murder, as he was growing up, he vow to fight crime, spend years training in martial arts, he would later discover there was a Batcave under the Wayne Manor while proposing to Andrea Beaumont, as bats flew out of the ground.
He would later dress as Batman to fight crime. Batman would gain a trust by Commissioner James Gordon.
Over the years Batman would sometime team up with Robin, and later Batgirl.
Batman appear in all 85 episodes of The Animated Series, his best top 3 episodes are…
I Am The Night
Perchance To Dream
Blind As A Bat
Comic Book Appearance
Here’s his two comic book appearance that’s worth reading on DC Universe Infinite…
Like Bruce Wayne, young Dick Grayson witness his Parent’s murder, they were known as The Flying Grayson at Haley’s Circus.
Wayne would take Grayson under his wing, later Grayson would become Robin and join Batman once a while in his adventures.
Robin has appeard at least 30 episodes in Batman The Animated Series. Here’s his top 3 best episodes…
Robin’s Reckoning Part 1 & 2
Fear Of Victory
What Is Reality?
Later the show would be called The Adventures Of Batman & Robin, here’s a video of it’s intro…
Here’s two best Robin story in my opinion from The Batman Adventures, and Batman & Robin Adventures.
Alfred Pennyworth has been a butler for Bruce Wayne since Wayne was a kid, since his Parent’s tragic murder, he’s always been ther for Bruce, giving him wisdom.
Before becoming a butler, Alfred has always dreamed of being a stage actor but ended up being a secret agent before working as a butler for the Wayne’s family.
Clive Revill has played Alfred for the first 3 episodes of the series before Efrem Zimbalist Jr. took over. Only 3 episodes I think are the best Alfred episodes of the series.
Commissioner James Gordon has been in Police business for many years. He’s a good friend with Batman, only he gets annoy with him disappearing when he turn to find he left.
But he’s definitely a good friend with Batman.
He also has a daughter named Barbara Gordon who sometimes come home from college to see him.
Gordon has appeard in some of the episodes, Here’s his top 3 best episodes

I Am The Night
Shadow Of The Bat Part 1 & 2

Detective Harvey Bullock works for Gotham City Police Department, he’s usually not a fan of Batman. Once in a while he’ll butt head with the Dark Knight, there has been a few times where he has his swat team going after him. His favorite snack is Coffee & Donut.
Bullock may be a tough guy, but he still has a good heart. (Just don’t tell him I said that!)
According to Wikipedia, Bullock has at least appeared in 21 episodes. Here’s his top 3 best episodes.
