Batman is undoubtedly the most iconic and profitable superhero in the DC Universe and that is why he lent himself to numerous animated TV series all through his career. Thanks to Batman, Detective Comics was the company’s name as well as the adopted initials; not only is he famous in comic books but he has also been around in entertainment for several decades and he will always continue to be even in the future.

Batman is also the star of plenty of animated shows that have had an impact on many in several generations.

The article mentions the list of all of Batman’s animated shows in their chronological order

The following is the correct and year wise chronological order of Batman animated movies. The first Batman animated movie was released in 1968.

1. The adventures of Batman released in 1968

Ever since the Batman series that starred Adam West became popular, DC wanted to produce cartoons out of that success. The show included Batman segments from the show Batman/Superman hour; Olan Soule replaced Adam West in his role while Burt Ward got replaced by Casey Kasem who played Robin. Years later, the show took up a new name called Batman with Robin the boy wonder; this was just the start of something great that would turn out to have several crossovers with other movies/series.

2. The new adventures of Batman released in 1977

The latest Batman Adventures was a continuation of the former show; this one was special since it featured better quality animation and more familiar voices of Adam West and Burt Ward who took up their iconic role after several years when their show was canceled. The show only lasted for a season since it took an interesting direction after the introduction of Bat-mite, their cute but very annoying sidekick.

3. Batman: The animated series released in 1992

The only animated show which was so popular among Batman fans all over was the critically acclaimed show, Batman: The animated series that was released in 1992. When it concerns Batman, the writing of this show was so much entertaining and provoking that both kids and adults loved it; it was among the most revolutionary DC animated shows that were ever made. The villains in the show were thrilling as well and ever since, it led to the creation of other shows like Justice League, Superman, and their latest characters Harley Quin and Joker who have become iconic to this day.
