I can sympathize with that statement a little

While I always felt Batman The Animated Series was far better, I enjoyed some episodes of Superman (others not so much). I thought they drew Clark/Superman too bulky. I enjoyed the 3 part origin and I loved the Metallo episodes. Did not like their take on Lex's look and felt they could have featured the Fortress of Solitude more often.

Overall I thought it was good

The reason why some fans come down on Batman 89 so hard since the Nolan films have been released is 2 fold: the Nolan films are newer and fans of the actual books don't read the 70's and 80's source material that the 89 film was based upon to understand how much more pure the 89 film is compared to the modern crime-drama trilogy that Nolan created.
