The Batman: The Complete Third Season

This cartoon series The Batman comes after Batman: The Animated Series which ran for 4 seasons. There is a revamp of the drawings. While Batman: The Animated Series shows a square jaw Batman, this cartoon series shows a younger Batman/Bruce Wayne. Actually this Bruce Wayne has oriental features and looks like a young Bruce Lee! Must be the influence of Asian, mostly Koreans graphic animators.

This series shows a younger Batman, and the storyline takes off where the movie, Batman Begins ends. However this Batman has cooler gadgets. The villains like the Joker, Mr. Freeze, Penguin, Clayface and the rest looks different and are more aggressive. Imagine Penguin fighting and you know what I mean.

This is the third season. Batgirl/Babara Gordon joins an unwilling Batman (who is unwilling to take on a sidekick) to fight Joker, Penguin, Scarface, Gearhead, and an assortment of other criminals to keep Gotham City safe. There are 13 episodes and some episodes are quite funny. I like the one in which Joker stole Bane's device and uses it on himself! A Bane like muscular Joker is fun to watch. And they also introduced a new batmobile and batplane. Cool.

This is the DC Comic Kids Collection. Just right for me.

Random musings? This blog is downright schizophrenic! Narrow your focus just a bit more, too unwieldly with the wide scope of subject matter.

hi anon,

Thanks for your advice about the focus. However if it is too focused, then it is no longer random.

About the blog being schizophrenic, I beg to differ from your diagnosis. Schizophrenia commonly mean split personalities.

I believe this blog is a holistic reflection by a person who is on a faith journey, enjoying the local attractions on the way. :)
