B:TAS’ groundbreaking run earned it four Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Animated Program (1993) out of 13 total nominations. The creative team headed by Timm included producers Paul Dini, Alan Burnett and Eric Radomski, exec producers Jean MacCurdy and Tom Ruegger. Shirley Walker composed the award-winning score, while 8-time Emmy winner Andrea Romano shepherded the impressive voice cast as casting/dialogue director. Episode animation directors were Kevin Altieri, Boyd Kirkland and Frank Paur, Dan Riba, Dick Seabast, Bruce Timm, Eric Radomski and Kent Butterworth.

Kevin Conroy led the voice cast as Batman, with core performers Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as Alfred Pennyworth, Robert Hastings as Commissioner Gordon, Loren Lester as Robin, and Robert Costanzo as Detective Harvey Bullock. The extraordinary villainous guest voices were led by Mark Hamill in an iconic and oft-repeated turn as The Joker, along with Richard Moll as Harvey Dent, Adrienne Barbeau as Catwoman, and Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn – the first character to be created initially for animation (by Timm & Dini) to jump to comic books. The show also had more than its fair share of impressive guest stars and celebrity stopovers.
