The Adventures of Batman

Show Summary

The Adventures of Batman is the late 60's animated series that chronicled the dark knight's escapades in a lighthearted way (as apposed to the darker film-noir style of the 90's animated series). The show used the voices of Olan Soule as the masked crusader, and famous radio personality and voice actor Casey Kasem as his boy wonder sidekick Robin. This series was best known for its pioneering use of realistic animation, by drawing over live action. Often paired with Superman Cartoons on CBS, each episode ran around 12 minutes long and portrayed the superhero outsmart and fight off an endless slew of super villains that threaten the good people of Gotham. After being orphaned as a child by an armed mugger, billionaire's son Bruce Wayne uses his great smarts and bountiful resources to create a masked vigilante alter ego known only as Batman. He vows to protect the metropolis city of Gotham from the criminals that overrun it and seek its control at any price.
