The fall of saw the premiere of a Saturday morning cartoon show unlike any other on at the time. Here was a show with a unified style, intricate plots and a well-crafted atmosphere. The show soon earned the admiration of its target audience of children, but its craftsmanship did not go unnoticed by critics.

That it was a show taken seriously by critics is no more evident than in The fall of saw the premiere of a Saturday morning cartoon show unlike any other on at the time. That it was a show taken seriously by critics is no more evident than in the fact that, among other merchandise associated with children programming coloring books, sticker sets, action figures , Batman: The Animated Series also deserved the creation of an art book.

The unfinished quality of the sketch shows it to be a work in progress: it is art in the process of being animated. Already a style is evident, one that trumps expressiveness over realism. Throughout the book there are fold-out pages that further exemplify the style in the form of the tone of the series. As such, they lack an objective view on the series, but offer plenty of insider knowledge of the production, as well as the controversies that went on behind the scenes.

They are frank in admitting they would often cut scripts and dialogue for the sake of atmosphere: Batman is a show interested in mood and silent spaces, as well as action, and this required sparse scripts.

But what is more interesting is how the show had to work around the network censors by creating an expression of violence rather than showing violence itself, and by doing so create a style. A shadow falls away, a severed rope swings, and the audience infers the death without it being shown. Batman was conceived as a hero in conflict with his inner self, someone who "exorcises his ghosts by becoming Batman. Expressionist films The Cabinet of Dr.

Caligari and Metropolis are mentioned as direct influences. The villains of Gotham became even more severe extensions of their inner qualities; no longer even human looking, they became their emotional states. Even Batman was given a makeover, which stripped all color from his costume, making it finally a complete extension of the darkness within his soul.

There are two pages with quotes from various people commenting on their approval of the show, but no context is given to who these people are or why they are speaking as authorities on the subject. A lack of page numbers makes referencing a cumbersome chore. The authors themselves remain in disguise, and it is difficult to decipher which one of them is writing. Batman Animated, by presenting the aesthetics of a cartoon show in a thoughtful fashion, suggests, perhaps, there should be.

Nov 26, Andy rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Batman cartoon fans. Shelves: art-gallery , kidstuff. Bruce Timm's rendering of Batman for his cartoon show was one of the best interpretations of the character ever, maybe the best. If you agree then you need this book. There are story boards to the cartoon show, character studies, production notes, and tons of brilliant Bruce Timm art.

Except sturdy. It's come apart over time. Mar 24, D. It's only taken me something like 20 years of Batman: The Animated Series fandom to get around to getting myself a copy of this book and unfortunately it hasn't really been worth the wait. While this is a beautifully-designed book thanks to Chip Kidd , it doesn't really add up to much more than a glorified magazine. Dini's text is cursory while occasionally providing more character information than anyone likely to be reading this book is likely to want, skimping on more in-depth exploration o It's only taken me something like 20 years of Batman: The Animated Series fandom to get around to getting myself a copy of this book and unfortunately it hasn't really been worth the wait.

Dini's text is cursory while occasionally providing more character information than anyone likely to be reading this book is likely to want, skimping on more in-depth exploration of the ins and outs of the show.

Perhaps a large part of the problem here was context: the book was published at a time when the show or at least an incarnation thereof was still on the air, and its eventual influence on animated television was yet to be seen. There is a hefty bunch of art here, including storyboards, conceptual drawings and unadulterated backgrounds.

But Kidd's penchant for graphic impact over actual content is seen a bit too often in oversized, lovingly-photographed toys and collectibles where more art or indeed text might have done better. Also included is an episode guide including at-the-time unproduced eps, and a voice-cast listing with notable appearances. Though this is not a bad book as a loving tribute to a classic, influential program a la Visions from the Twilight Zone , a more thoroughly written, comprehensive, but still lavishly produced book would certainly be a better authoritative volume.

While there's text a plenty to give almost as much insight as any fan could want into the development and making of such a seminal work, the text isn't the star.

Not even the behind the scenes photographs of voice actors are the star although they're nice. Unsurprisingly the development art, design roughs, storyboards, backgrounds, title cards and screenshots of the final animation are the only reason anyone was buying this book during it's brief release. Out of print for years it's very much a thing of it's time , those who are interested will have to look for it on the second hand market.

It's not impossible to find and neither is it prohibitively expensive. Great fun for fans of Batman, animation and Dini and his collaborators. More general fans might struggle to stay onboard throughout. Nov 29, Michael P. This book tells the story behind the series. It includes the history and development of the idea, character and other design, the people who put it together, and was written by two Animated television shows that are truly great in every way, concept, design, story, dialog, and the quality of the animation, are non-existent, but the BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES came closer than any before, marred only be some lesser stories and episodes in which the animation was farmed out to a Japanese company.

It includes the history and development of the idea, character and other design, the people who put it together, and was written by two of those people, insuring a high degree of accuracy and access. The book is heavily illustrated, as it must be, and in color, as it should be.
