Batman: The Animated Series (often shortened Batman: TAS or BTAS) is a four-time Emmy Award-winning American animated television series adaptation of the comic book series featuring the DC Comics superhero, Batman.The show's visual style is based on the artwork of producer Bruce Timm. The original episodes, produced by Timm and Eric Radomski, first airing in the United States on the Fox Network from 1992 to 1995. When the first season of the series aired on weekday afternoons, it lacked an on-screen title in the opening credits and was known only as Batman (and would be referred to as such in episode recaps that summarised what had happened "previously on Batman..."). When its timeslot was moved to weekend mornings for the second series, it was briefly re-named The Adventures of Batman & Robin, a title originally used in the 1969-70 Filmation series, to emphasize the crime fighting partnership of the characters and allow younger audiences to become more familiar with Robin, who would shortly afterwards feature in the 1995 film Batman Forever. The series was the first of the modern DC Animated Universe. It was entirely separate from the previous continuity of animated Warner Bros. DC Comics adaptations such as Superfriends.
