The Adventures of Batman Coming to DVD

In 2007, The New Adventures of Batman- The Complete Series (1977) was an animated series released by Warner Home Video featuring the voices of Adam West and Burt Ward as cartoon versions of Batman & Robin. However, there was another Batman & Robin animated series called The Adventures of Batman in 1968 on CBS when Adam West and Burt Ward were doing the live-action version of Batman & Robin.  The Adventures of Batman is a treasured item that came out before The New Adventures of Batman.


Warner Home Video has announced the two-disc DVD set that will have seventeen episodes.  It will be released on June 3, 2014 for $19.97. This series features Batman voiced by Olan Soule, Casey Kasem as Robin, and Ted Knight as Commissioner Gordon. See the description of this DVD as well as the episode listing below.


The Adventures of Batman was an American animated television series produced by Lou Schiemer's Filmation studios. The shorts were broadcast as part of The Batman/Superman Hour in 1968.
