On a time when animated shows were heavily censored out and catered for kids to appreciate alone, Batman: The Animated Series was a breath of fresh air. As a child growing up during the 90's, I have to admit that Batman: The Animated Series featured some very mature content for the era for a kids show and it was the animated series' biggest strength. Kids need an icon to look up to and they somewhat know that criminals are not as goofy as other superhero television kids show portray them to be back in the 90's. Dark themes and violence are very common in animated shows nowadays, but back then it was pretty rare, so when Batman somehow effectively portrayed the likeliness of the violent nature of real life crime and crime fighting, plus the fact that Batman had no super powers, kids felt that they were taken seriously and he was the hero that kids can become, a bad ass brawler who uses cool gadgets and a smart detective. It was awesome! Well, at least that was what I felt back then. If my memories served me right, Batman aired every Friday nights in ABS-CBN which is a perfect weekend primetime treat for a grade school student like me. One of my favorite villain in Batman the Animated Series was Clayface because he has the ability/power that I've always dream of having, to shapeshift.
