The best American cartoon series. This was how I was really introduced to Batman. I resisted comics as a kid, and when I got into them it was just Marvel, I thought all the DC characters were sissies...still do, except for Batman. I loved how geometric the design was in this show, and they actually used black! It was like no other cartoon I had seen, all the other action cartoons had the same basic 80's G.I. Joe look that just wasn't original. I loved how simple this show kept things and yet how bad ass it was.
