Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Adventures of Batman


In 1968, Batman, Robin and a whole slew of Batman's supporting cast and villains finally made their animation debuts. 

The Adventures of Batman, also known as Batman With Robin the Boy Wonder, debuted just a few months after the cancellation of the live-action Batman TV series. Episodes aired as part of the Batman / Superman Hour Filmation animation block with Batman episodes being packaged with episodes of The New Adventures of Superman and The Adventures of Superboy.

Breaking from tradition, half of the 34 Batman segments ran for the standard 6 minutes and half ran for a double length 12 minutes.Although never released to DVD, these episodes are available from iTunes and Amazon Instant Video.
