About Batman: The Animated Series

Batman: The Animated Series is a television cartoon adaptation of the Batman comics. The series aired from 1992 until 1995 with a total of 85 episodes and two tie-in direct-to-video films. Visually, the creators took inspiration from the 1989 and 1992 Batman films and Radomski's gothic Gotham City art. Compared to previous superhero cartoons, the series took a more adult-oriented approach. Violence was depicted on screen as well as realistic firearms. The series received praise for its thematic elements, "dark deco" aesthetics, and complexity. It remains one of the most highly praised Batman properties and comic book cartoons today.

About Harley Quinn

The Joker's assistant, Harley Quinn, made her debut in Batman: The Animated Series before being adapted into comic book canon. Initially, the creators intended for Harley to be a one-off character but her role eventually expanded. She served as both a series villainess and stormy love interest for the Joker. Her design is based on simplified harlequin gear with villain color influences. In designing her character, creator Paul Dini took inspiration from a roller-skating jester a friend of his played in a soap opera. His friend, Arleen Sorkin, provided Harley's voice for the series and developed her trademark Brooklyn accent.

Other Important Batman: the Animated Series Characters

Batman: The Animated Series managed to flesh out a large cast of heroes and villains throughout 85 episodes. In addition to creating new characters, the series breathed new life into existing favorites.


Batman is the titular hero of the Animated Series and one of DCs classic superheroes. Born Bruce Wayne, Batman trained to become a vigilante hero after witnessing his parents' murder as a child. He spent his formative years under the care of the family butler, Alfred Pennyworth, and turned his trauma into an obsession. After growing up with the un-checked crime wave in Gotham City, Bruce adopted an alter ego to stop crime his way. Inspired by his childhood fear of bats, Bruce donned a bat-themed mask called his persona Batman. In his daily life, Bruce Wayne is an assertive, involved manager of the family company, Wayne Enterprises. This is a characteristic first seen in the animated series, as Bruce traditionally played up his playboy billionaire image.


The Joker is one of the Batman comics' most iconic supervillains and Batman's archenemy. He is an extremely calculating and manipulative figure, making him incredibly dangerous. Like all traditional Batman comic villains, the Joker has a thematic gag: he's a clown. As a result, the majority of his crimes are connected to humor in some way. His overall goal for committing crimes is to create as much chaos as possible. With the introduction of Harley Quinn in the series, the Joker received a new victim to treat with merciless violence. Notably, Mark Hamill's performance as the Joker revolutionized voice acting and Hamill's off-screen career.

Poison Ivy

Poison Ivy, real name Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley, is a botanist and main villain in the Batman universe. In the animated series, she is distinct from other villains in that she does not desire money or power. Instead, her goals lie almost entirely in preserving plant life and harming those who threaten it. Her extreme methods of punishment, usually involving poisons, often landed her in Arkham Asylum. In the episode Harley and Ivy, Poison Ivy teams up with a recently rebuffed Harley Quinn to become the new "Queens of Crime." The partnership between the two characters was well-received by fans and continued in the comic book canon.

Harley Quinn's partner, the Joker, also appears in BE@RBRICK form. His Batman: The Animated Series design shines in the "BE@RBRICK The Joker: Batman: The Animated Series Ver. 1000%" figure. The 27-inch height is just comically large enough to capture his chaotic spirit.
