I honestly feel like Superman:TAS did a lot of stuff right, it just didn't have the "organic" quality of BTAS because the creators liked the Knight more. This becomes especially obvious in the "World's Finest" episode.
It was even said by the producers in the video commentary that they had a hard time writing for superman, let alone picking his villains and how they found Batman to be more interesting.
Given the fact that they're still writing this thing, I'm hoping that they'll get word that there's quite a group of people that aren't obsessed with Batman that aren't actually happy about Superman having to share his film with Batman, let alone worried that Superman is going to be crucified by the knight
