#1 Batman: The Animated Series
Series Run: 1992-1998
Anyone who has seen it knows that it deserves the number one spot. Anyone who says that this show is too dark for kids is both underestimating children and failing to recognize the intended audience for the show.
Taking cues from the Gothic stylings of the Burton Batman films as well as some of Frank Miller’s Dark Knight art made for a supremely interesting visual palette. This series features the adventures of the Dark Knight of Gotham City as he battles the evil that inhabits the city with occasional help of Robin and Batgirl in stories that are faithful to the comics in spirit and tone.
