    The Animated Series played a big role into me liking Batman since as a small child I did not obviously have money to buy the comics..let alone the want to read. :p

    Batman '89 where his dark past, resolve and mystery of his nature struck and resonated for years to come, have loved him ever since. TAS kept up the interest for years, while only at 17 did I begin to collect comics. For every comic/episode I learn a little more about him, it makes the character more and more appealing.

    I realize I'm aging myself, but it was the costume in the comics as drawn by Dick Sprang back in the early 60's (pre-Adam West) first ,then the batmobile, gadgets, villians, Some fun stories (not all of them were goofy,no matter what modern day fanboys would have you believe.)

    For me it was my dad buying Batman comics when I was a kid and he'd read them to me for a bedtime story. Then I got into BTAS and was officially hooked.

    The 60's tv show, first run. Although i was quite little at the time, i remember thinking it was the greatest damn thing ever.

    Got hooked on the comics shortly after.

    I honestly have to say that I saw the 60s Adam West show and that is what really got me into the comic book store next to Target in my town. Now though, I really can't stand the old Batman show. Interesting I think. As I grew up from that tender, yet blind and stupid, age I must have matured and looked for something more dark.

    Burton's Batman is really got me hooked and loving the true dark pyscological Batman/Bruce Wayne.

    I remember when I was younger watching BTAS, my Dad had Batman '89 on VHS so I watched that, various Super Friends re-runs. Batman is one of my favorites not exactly number one my list any more though, he got replaced by the Black Canary, Oracle, Huntress and Lady Blackhawk, but he's still one of my favorites, although he wasn't my first comic book, I still pay loyalties to him and anything Bat-related, my first comic book was actually a Spiderman comic book that my big brother gave me.

    Loved Batman in the late 80's I enjoyed re-runs of the Adam West show. The cartoon kept me interested. Lost interest for a few years. Batman Begins got me hooked again. Love the character more than ever.

    I honestly don't remember. I first saw B89 when I was 2 or 3, and I became hooked. What was it that exactly hooked me in? I really don't know.

    Batman '89 got me hooked on Batman. I loved it the first time I saw it. It was one of my favorite movies and still remains on the list of all time greats. Then came Batman: The Animated Series, it was the greatest cartoon I had ever seen. It captured the perfect feel of Batman and all his villians. It's still my second favorite medium of Batman next to the movies then comes the comics. I started reading Batman comics when Batman Forever came out, I collected as many as I could from the past. Then in about 2000, when no more Batman movies were made and no more of the original TAS, I got away from Batman. He was still ok at the time but I didn't like him nearly as much. Then last year came Batman Begins which sparked my interest again. I'm back collecting tons of Batman comics and anticipating sequels to Begins.

    At first, reruns of the 60's show, but what really hooked me was Denny O'Neil & Neal Adams' Batman.

    I blame it all on the 60s show, which I've tried my hardest to completely remove from my mind.

    If memory serves, I first saw Bats in re-runs of the 60's series and started buying comic books soon thereafter. I loved the cool suit, the car, the gadgets, the eccentric villains, etc. After seeing the artwork of Neal Adams, I gained a new appreciation of the Dark Knight's original incarnation and ever after I've preferred the 1939/post 60's version of the character.

    I was just reading the poll above and I am surprised people put that what got them into Batman was his Batmobiles; odd.
