SHH! Filmation Era - The Adventures of Batman (1968-1969)



Let's discuss this underrated and often forgotten campy cartoon. Some of the episodes are actually quite good and hilarious, my favorites being: "Hizzoner, the Joker", "Simon the Pieman", "From Catwoman with Love", "It Takes Two to Make a Team".

And Larry Storch's Joker is so much better than Lennie Weinrib's cringe take on him in 1977's The New Adventures of Batman.

Interesting bit of information about the 1968 Joker: apparently, there is a controversy as to who actually did a voice over work: some say it was Ted Knight not Larry Storch, because Storch's name never appeared in the credits of the show.

I like it. In a thrashy kind of way. May be nostalgia. Also, Bob Haney wrote some of the episodes. That's good. And in general, it isn't worse than the Adam West show Season III.

I would even go as far as saying: it's clearly superior to the 77 show: voices, animation models (not movements), stories, creativity and some nice music compositions too (although the intro is just plain bad). 77 will always remain as my least favorite Batman show because Bat-Mite was unbearable and insufferable, killed all the hype for any potential episode and most of the plots were so-so too. This one has it all (fun, excitement, action, nice humor and you feel like you are reading an early issue of Bill Finger/Dick Sprang's run on Batman) and even Batgirl is quite good in her role.

Make sure to get it, it's really worth it. Those who prefer ignore this iteration of our Caped Crusader are making a big mistake, just like those who thought that Adam West's version never made sense during the 1989/BTAS-eras.

Okay, so I spoke to Paul Dini today about the Filmation Era voiceover problem. Turns out: Larry Storch did the voice for the Scooby-Doo films by Hanna-Barbera and Ted Knight was the voice of the Joker during the Filmation era (1968).
