Take a look at Gotham High, the Batman animated series that never was

Alright, so this isn't film related, but I know you guys love your Batman, and therefore you'd probably be as interested in this as I was.

What you see here (click to enlarge any of the pictures) is concept art for an animated series about Bruce Wayne's high school years, with all his villains in tow, segregated into various high school cliques. There's Killer Croc and Bane, the jocks, Joker and Scarecrow, the emo kids, Edward Nigma and Penguin, the nerds, and Catwoman and Poison Ivy, the hot chicks. Freeze, Clayface, Two-Face, Batgirl and more show up, and I think it's a shame this never made it to TV.

From the artists Jeff and Celeste, the proposed plot:

We all go through incredible changes as teenagers: growth spurts, bad skin, a sudden insatiable need to uphold justice and avenge your murdered parents…. Well, that is if you’re Bruce Wayne. As if being a freshman at Gotham High wasn’t tough enough, Bruce’s insomnia and technological fascinations are taking their toll. Instead of spending his time studying, he has begun to obsess over an emerging personality trait: Batman. But under the watchful eye of his guardian and steward, Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce is forced to put his intelligence to good use: graduating high school. But given his classmates, can Bruce survive Gotham High?

Sadly, it got lost in a sea of other DC projects, but here's to hoping they dust it off and we see it on Cartoon Network someday. 

Extra Tidbit: Has kind of a "Clone High" vibe. That show was awesome.
