It was twenty years ago today I think one of the better versions of a televised/motion story version of BATMAN debuted on TV. It was BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES. Creative types like Bruce Timm, Eric Radomski, Paul Dini, etc. did such a great job in putting this show together! In addition actor Kevin Conroy really gave us a fully realized BATMAN with his voice work! Also other actors like Mark Hamill, etc. did excellent voice acting on characters like the Joker, along with other classic and new characters in this BATMAN universe! BMTAS had a perfect mix of crime/film noir style, mood, adventure, drama, and dark humor all in a kid's show if you can believe that! I could not resist in creating an image of BATMAN in Illustrator of the style of Bruce Timm who set the visual look of the show.
