. The series was produced by Warner Bros. Animation and originally aired on the Fox Network from September 5, 1992 to September 15, 1995. The visual style of the series, dubbed "Dark Deco," was based on the film noir artwork of producer and artist Eric Radomski, although Bruce Timm is often mistakenly given credit for this due to the fact that the characters were based on his designs.

The series also won four Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Animated Program.
The second season of the series was retitled as The Adventures of Batman and Robin

The aesthetic would also be emulated for the Justice League
and Justice League: Unlimited
series, which stars the same Batman.
