The Animated Batman Movie You Loved As A Kid Is Finally Coming Back

- Page 1

Everyone has their definitive version of Batman while growing up. For some it was Adam West, for others it was Michael Keaton. Some people even like Batman & Robin for reasons that none of us can understand.


For kids in the 90s, few versions came close to matching Batman: The Animated Series. Spearheaded by Tiny Toon Adventures director Bruce Timm and written by Paul Dini, the series is still remembered today as one of the absolute best kids shows of all time.

It's hard not to see why. Between its hyper-stylized visuals and sharp writing, this was a series that treated kids like adults and didn't shy away from stories that were tragic, haunting, or sometimes even flat out terrifying.


Kevin Conroy's Batman and Mark Hamill's The Joker remain fan favorites to this day. They've each reprised their roles countless times throughout the years, including in the critically-acclaimed Arkham video game series.

The series even gave us the first appearance of someone who's gone on to become one of Batman's most popular foes: Harley Quinn! That's right, the Joker's on-again off-again love interest was invented for this show.


The show was a massive hit from the get-go, and so in 1994 they released the first official movie of the series - Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

While its initial theatrical run wasn't a massive success, Mask of the Phantasm has remained a classic to everyone who saw it on home video as a kid. Many even consider it to be the best Batman movie ever released.

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


11 Disney Reboots That Are Getting Made, Whether You Want Them Or Not

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart. However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a


'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.
