There is no Batgirl in these and Yvonne wasn't approached in the earlier stages of this while she was still alive.

What is the animation style?AndyFish wrote:Got an insider on this one-- I just got a peek at some elements and it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. From what I've seen, it's a little light hearted, but I'm happy its in the works anyway.
Two are certainly planned. One is currently in production and another still developing but soon to begin I believe.Jthree wrote:Is it just one Batman 66 DVD in the works? Or two? A year ago, it was mentioned that there might be more than one.
The New Adventures of Batman (Filmation) was pretty bad, despite the voice work of Adam and Burt, but Adam's stint on Superfriends: Galactic Guardians was great. The episode starring Scarecrow called The Fear (which featured the death of Thomas and Martha Wayne) was outstanding.
I'm sure Adam, Burt and Julie will pull it out of the bag for this/these movies. I just hope the story and animation doesn't let them down.
I think the New Adventures of Batman has been unfairly viewed. Sure, it wasn't the classic tv series, but it was a pretty good 70s Saturday Morning Cartoon. Some of the episodes are very good, even for adults and Adam and Burt's voice work is terrific.tenderheart bear wrote: The New Adventures of Batman (Filmation) was pretty bad, despite the voice work of Adam and Burt, but Adam's stint on Superfriends: Galactic Guardians was great.

It was obvious (to my older ears) that many of the characters had variations on the same voice. While I agree Adam and Burt were great as always, it was the Joker that really got on my nerves. The way his voice constantly goes up and down without rhyme nor reason is quite grating (along with laugh). It was the same in the Scooby-Doo movies, but that was only 2 appearances and his screen-time was more limited.
Oh, and Bat-Mite is just plain annoying in the show. I love his appearances in Batman: The Brave and the Bold though.
