Batman: The Animated Series Episodes Order

Season 1 (1992–1993)

The 1st season of Batman: The Animated Series aired during the 1992-1993 television season, running from September 1992 to May 1993. Sixty of the show’s total 65 episodes were aired during this time. The final five episodes were held back until September 17th, 1993.

Highlights of the first season:

Harley Quinn

Although its first season is arguably the weakest, it does feature the debut of Harley Quinn, who would go on to become a mainstay in DC lore.

Harley Quinn made her first appearance in this first season before popping up again in Justice League Unlimited and later getting her own live-action movie.

Harley Quinn isn’t the only character who debuts here though–she’s joined by Poison Ivy and Two-Face as well!

Dr. Hugo Strange

Also notable is the appearance of Dr. Hugo Strange, who will go on to become one of Batman’s most persistent foes.

He’s a criminal genius and psychologist who uses his skills for evil purposes.

Edward Nygma (a.k.a. “The Riddler”)

Edward Nygma also appeared this season as a forensic scientist and analyst.

He eventually became The Riddler, another recurring villain from the comics (and the future star of his own show).

So, if you’re looking for an action-packed show full of adventure, mystery, and suspense, look no further than Batman: The Animated Series Season One!

Season 2 (1994–1995)

Season Two of Batman: The Animated Series was broadcast in 1994-1995. Following the success of the first 65 episodes, a second season consisting of 20 more episodes was ordered by Fox network executives.

The network started airing these episodes in May 1994 but then reduced its screenings to only airing weekly on Saturday mornings. Ten more episodes aired between September and November 1994, followed by five being held back until September 1995.

Highlights of the second season:

In this season, Robin had a more important role. There were 20 episodes, and this season’s title was The Adventures of Batman & Robin.

Ra’s Al Ghul, Poison Ivy, and More…

Season two brought us Ra’s Al Ghul as well as a cameo from Poison Ivy and her lover, Monster Man.

One episode showed us that Selina Kyle (the former Talia) and her time-traveling feline friend Nyssa Raatko (the former Catwoman) had come to Earth.

During this season we also see Harvey Dent (Michael Keaton) change into Two-Face after being hit in the face with acid by a mobster.

The whole series was released later on DVD as Batman: The Animated Series Volume Three, which also has all the episodes from Batman: The Animated Series.

Season 3 (1997–1999)

The third season of Batman: The Animated Series ran from 1997 to 1999, marking a significant transition for the popular series.

When the show moved to the WB network, 24 new episodes were made. The new episodes featured a different story and showed more of Batman’s supporting cast.

To match the graphic style of Superman, all the characters and objects in this new season were redesigned. This new look was called the “revamp” or “new look” in the United States.

This same graphic style later became synonymous with the rest of the DCAU.

Highlights of the third season:

Clayface, Mr. Freeze, Nora Fries, and more…

Season three gave us Clayface and introduced Mr. Freeze as well as his wife, Nora Fries.

The third season also brought back some of our favorite characters from the first two seasons, including Poison Ivy and Ra’s al Ghul. This was also the first time we saw Batman interact with Robin on a regular basis (he had been missing in action for most of season two).
