There are two types of Batman programs/movies - the campy, kid friendly ones and the "Dark Knight" adult versions that delve into your psyche. This series is firmly in the first camp - campy, outlandish and entirely fun for a marathon on a rainy day when you want to stay in your pajamas.
The series brings in heroes and villains from all over the DC world that you might not normally see in a Batman series. My husband, the comic book guy, liked the addition of some of DC's lesser known heroes and villains. Plastic Man, Green Arrow and the others are fun and truly add to the campy nature of the show. Wayne's favorite episode featured Batman teaming up with Sherlock Holmes and a demon! The violence is minimal and done in a very comedic way.
If you are looking to find the 'dark knight' or anything truly cerebral in these videos, you need to look elsewhere, but if you're looking for a bit of fun, to introduce Batman to the kids, than this is a DVD for your collection.
