Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated Series have been added for streaming on Amazon Instant Video.
Arguably two of the best and well-respected superhero cartoons by Warner Bros. Animation, Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated Series are now available to watch online for Amazon Prime members. Thanks to the creative team of Bruce Timm, Paul Dini, Eric Radomski, and many others, Batman: The Animated Series was praised by critics and fans when it debuted in 1993. Known for its dark atmosphere and “Dark Deco” art style, Batman: The Animated Series is still seen today as the best interpretation of the character, thanks to its dramatic and sometimes tragic storylines. The best example of the latter being the episode Heart of Ice, which reinvented Mr. Freeze from boring crook to a sympathetic, but cold-hearted killer. While overall lighter in tone, Superman: The Animated Series delivered the same entertaining quality as the DC series before it, with the Apokolips…Now! two-parter as among the classics.
For other animated DC superhero shows, Netflix has Batman Beyond, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited on their streaming service. All three are connected with Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated Series, with Justice League Unlimited serving as the final series in the DC Animated Universe.
