The Heart of Batman

The ultimate documentary for fans of Batman: The Animated Series. Hear from Bruce Timm, Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill and more as they recount the origins of this legendary milestone in animation.

Hot off the heels of Tim Burton’s 1989 Blockbuster, WB was readying a new Batman cartoon only this time it would be much darker than predecessors such as Super Friends.

Batman: The Animated Series was like nothing else on TV. It was dark, it was serious, it didn’t insult its audience, and it had incredible art direction from Bruce Timm, creating an iconic style that would set the direction for DC animation for decades.
