Cool Videos: Live Action Batman The Animated Series Intro

May. 14, 2014by: Graham McMorrow

One of my favorite childhood TV shows has received the live action treatment (sort of). Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski's BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES is one of the best and most influential portrayals of the caped crusader; it also had quite the memorable opening credits sequence full of action-packed mayhem on the streets of Gotham City.

Fans Tomi Pietilä, Teemu Saarinen and Tommi Tuominen have gone ahead and re-created most of the intro using an actual Batman, cops, and crooks. Check it out:

Do you have a favourite BTAS episode? Mine is Jokers Favor.

Extra Tidbit: Al Pacino was initially offered the role of Two-Face in the series.

Nice!

Well done! In reference to the extra tidbit, I am right there with you. Joker's Favor will always be my favorite too! I am still waiting for WB and DC to finally bite the bullet and just make a new cartoon very similar to BATS. God knows it seems everything else they pump out as a Batman cartoon seems to fall flat on it's face.

Joker's Favor is one of my favorites. Also The Man Who Killed Batman and Trial.

Ditto that. Pretty cool to see/hear Adam West revisit Batman.

Ha, loved this as a kid. I remember a Joker episode where he just broke out of jail at Christmas on a rocket Christmas tree...and within minutes had some massive contraptions in place to destroy Batman. great stuff! Favourite episodes would be any that dealt with the inner turmoil that Bruce Wayne had to deal with - the one when Scarecrow arrives on the scene for example. Personally Mask of the Phantasm was my favourite one but that wasn't an episode from the series. Conroy rules!

Well, personally speaking I find this fan made effort was better than all 3 of Nolan's movies. That said, I really really hated those.

Actually - that's pretty pitch perfect. I'm guessing Bob-Loblaw doesn't get the reference.

Well I don't know who Tommy Wiseau is or what "The Room" is, so no, I don't get the reference.

I loved that video; thanks for sharing. I think I lost it at "Hugo, you always play psychologist with me." The Room is a cultural phenomenon for a reason and this played on it in just the right way. Not the very best Wiseau impression out there; but a strong one for sure.

Very neat. Always thought those were the world's fastest crooks though - they ascended that skyscraper in mere seconds! Re extra tidbit: Almost Got 'Im, Mad Love, Perchance to Dream.

Meh

Love the idea although it could have been better. But who am I to criticize? I applaud their effort.
