Filmation’s ‘The Adventures of Batman’ Complete Series Remaster Coming to Blu-ray

In the mood for some retro toon superhero action? Good news! One of Filmation’s most beloved animated series has been newly remastered in high definition for release on Blu-ray for the first time ever. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will distribute The Adventures of Batman: The Complete Collection on February 28, 2023, as a two-disc set featuring all 34 episodes of the classic series for $29.98 SRP (U.S.) / $39.99 SRP (Canada).

The Adventures of Batman (1968-69) was one of the spotlight television cartoons to be produced by Filmation, which produced more than 50 animated series, over a dozen TV shorts, specials and movies, and eight feature films. The Dark Knight’s adventures were also paired with another famous DC Super Hero to become The Batman/Superman Hour.

Filmation veteran Olan Soule (Super Friends, The Towering Inferno) provided the voice of Batman, while American Top 40 co-founder & host Casey Kasem (Scooby-Doo franchise) played Robin. The supporting cast featured two-time Emmy Award winner Ted Knight (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Caddyshack) as Commissioner Gordon, Larry Storch (F Troop) as Joker and Jane Webb (Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The Archie Show) as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl.

Soule and Kasem became the reigning voices of Batman and Robin, respectively, for several years as the Dynamic Duo would appear in two The New Scooby-Doo Movies crossovers, various versions of Super Friends and The New Adventures of Batman.

Premiering on September 14, 1968, The Adventures of Batman also featured Batman’s primary rogues’ gallery at the time — Penguin, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman, Riddler, Scarecrow, Dollman, Mad Hatter and Simon the Pieman — as well as some notable team-ups of those villains.
