7. They are 'The Cat And The Claw,' 'Feat Of Clay,' 'Two-Face,' 'Heart Of Steel,' 'Robin's Reckoning,' 'Shadow Of The Bat,' and 'The Demon's Quest.' All of them were part of the original series that ran 1992-1995.
Mad Hatter/Dr. Jervis Tetch. Ron Perlman played Clayface. Richard Moll played Two-Face, and Michael Ansara played Mr. Freeze.
Matches Malone. He used this third identity in the two-part episode 'Shadow Of The Bat.'
Gray Ghost/Simon Trent. According to the episode, 'Beware The Gray Ghost,' Simon Trent's portrayal of the Gray Ghost inspired a young Bruce Wayne that led partially to the creation of Batman.
Harley Quinn. Harley Quinn's birth name is Harleen Quinzell. She was a psychiatrist that became enamored by Joker when she interviewed him. She was portrayed (excellently) by Arleen Sorkin. She also provided the voice for Bambi in 'Mask Of The Phantasm.' Another character created for this series that was added to the comics was Officer/Detective Renee Montoya.
Mr. Freeze/Dr. Victor Fries. Previously, he was a criminal who had an accident trying to create a freeze ray. 'The Animated Series' turned him into the tragic figure who loves his sick wife, frozen until a cure can be found for her. He still had the cryogenic accident, only while freezing his wife.
|The actress who played Andrea Beaumont on the 'Mask Of The Phantasm' movie played whom on 'Superman, The Animated Series' (The one produced by the same team as 'Batman') that ran from 1996-2000?||The Complete 'Batman, The Animated Series'
Lois Lane. It was Dana Delaney. She continued to play Lois as needed on the 'Batman/Superman' spin-off, 'Justice League/Justice League Unlimited.' She also plays in 'Tombstone,' one of my favorite movies that has nothing to do with DC.
|John Glover played The Riddler/Edward Nygma on this series. This is not the only 'Batman' character he has played. Which character did he play in the Burton-Schumacher movie series?||The Complete 'Batman, The Animated Series'
Dr. Jason Woodrue. It was on the last film in this series, 1997's 'Batman & Robin.' His character is the one that had created Bane and the first person killed by Poison Ivy. You've also seen him in the DC Universe on 'Smallville' as Lionel Luthor.
The Joker/Jack Napier. He also played Hobgoblin on 'Spider-Man' (ran on FOX 1994-98) among many others. He has had a quite a few voice roles over the years since 'Star Wars.'
Ra's Al Ghul. Ra's Al Ghul was over 600 years old, and was considered to be one of the most dangerous (if not the most dangerous) of Batman's foes. Ra's Al Ghul was a global terrorist whose madness was fueled by the Lazarus Pit, a pool of chemicals that restore the body, but drives the one who uses it to total madness. Ra's daughter, Talia, was often torn between loyalty to her father, and her undying love for Bruce Wayne and Batman.
What made Ra's even more dangerous was the fact that he knew that Bruce Wayne and Batman were one and the same.
Harleen Quinzel. Dr. Harleen Quinzel was a psychologist who worked at Arkham Asylum, and fell so hard for the Joker that he became the love of her life, and she became his partner-in-crime, Harley Quinn. Her love for him is a very warped take on the Florence Nightingale effect, when a nurse(or in this case: doctor)falls in love with her patient.
-In the comic books, Cassandra Cain became Batgirl.
-Dr. Leslie Thompkins was the doctor who comforted a young Bruce Wayne on the night that his parents were murdered.
-Dr. Francine Langstrom was married to Dr. Kirk Langstrom, who invented a serum that transformed him into the Man-Bat, and after her father accidentally exposed her to a new form of the serum that he created, she transformed into a She-Bat.
Mark Hamill. Mark Hamill's other credits include the Trickster on the short-lived CBS TV show "The Flash", and also as the Gargoyle on the animated "Incredible Hulk" series. However, Mark Hamill is best known for his role as Luke Skywalker in the first "Star Wars" trilogy.
Kevin Michael Richardson was the voice of the Joker on the cartoon series "The Batman".
Willie Aames co-starred on a TV show that Mark Hamill once made an apperance on "Eight Is Enough".
Donald "Donny" Most is best know for his role as Ralph Malph on the classic ABC TV series "Happy Days".
Bane. Rupert Thorne hired Bane to defeat, and destroy Batman. Bane kidnapped Robin to use him as bait to trap Batman on a ship. During their battle, Bane had the physical edge over Batman, and was about to break Batman's back over his leg(a scene similar to a "Batman" comic where Bane did exactly that), when Batman used a Batarang to damage the device that pumps Venom (a chemical that caused Bane's muscles to grow bigger, and give him superhuman strength) into him, by causing the device to overload Bane's body.
Batman took a defeated Bane back to Rupert Thorne, and revealed a recording of his assistant Candice conspiring with Bane to eliminate not only Batman, but also Thorne as well. Batman called it "better luck next time".
Rupert Thorne was voiced by John Vernon, who was also the voice of Dr. Strange on an episode of "Spider-Man: The Animated Series", and known for such movies as "National Lampoon's Animal House", and the 80's comedy "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka". Sadly, John Vernon passed away in February of 2005.
Alfred. Alfred Pennyworth was Bruce Wayne's butler, and had been Bruce's surrogate father figure ever since the death of Bruce's parents. Alfred was also a former spy, and soldier, though he didn't see much action in the field, except for one time where he flew the Bat-Wing to help rescue an amnesiac Bruce Wayne from a corrupt prison warden.
The voice of Alfred was portrayed by veteran actor Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., who was also the voice of Dr. Octopus on the 90's cartoon "Spider-Man: The Animated Series".
The Grey Ghost. Bruce Wayne watched "The Grey Ghost" when he was a kid. The man who played the Grey Ghost, named Simon Trent, was now an older, disgruntled, out-of-work actor, primarily because of being typecasted as the Grey Ghost. Batman asked Simon Trent for help when Gotham City was plagued by a mad bomber who used exploding, remote controlled toy cars, which was right out of an episode of "The Grey Ghost".
At first, Trent turned Batman down, angry over the Grey Ghost character. Disgusted, Batman told Trent that the Grey Ghost was his hero as a child. When Batman was trapped by a few toy cars, Simon Trent, dressed as the Grey Ghost saves him just in the nick of time. Batman took Simon Trent to the Bat-Cave, which was modeled after the Grey Ghost's lair from the TV show, and showed him some Grey Ghost memorabilia that Bruce had collected over the years.
Simon Trent/The Grey Ghost was voiced by Adam West, who (ironically) played Bruce Wayne/Batman on the 60's TV series "Batman".
Edward Nygma. In the episode "If Your So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?" the Riddler kidnapped his boss for stealing his idea, a game called "The Riddle Of the Minotaur". Batman figured out that Edward Nygma was behind the kidnapping because his name shortened is E. Nygma (a play on the word "enigma", which means a puzzle, or a riddle).
The Riddler was voiced by John Glover, who is best known for his role as Lionel Luthor on the TV series "Smallville".
Catwoman. The Joker captured Batman, and (in front of a live TV audience) had him strapped to a laughter-activated electric chair. The Joker filled the studio with laughing gas, causing anyone exposed to it to laugh at anything, even the listings in the telephone book.
Catwoman saved Batman from the electric chair, but ended up getting captured by the Joker (with a little assistance from Harley Quinn). Batman (disguised as Killer Croc) discovered that the Joker had her tied to a grinder at a cat food factory, while playing cards with him, the Penguin, Two-Face, and Poison Ivy, who each told a story about how they almost trapped and captured Batman.
After Batman rescued Catwoman, she asked him if there will ever be a world where they can live in without masks, or psychotic villians. Batman says "maybe", and then swings off into the night's sky.
Catwoman's response was "Almost got him!" (which was the title of this particular episode).
Two-Face. On "Batman: The Animated Series", District Attorney Harvey Dent was Bruce Wayne's friend who was blackmailed by Rupert Thorne. Dent suffered from holding in his anger since childhood, causing him to develop a split personality-Harvey Dent, and "Big Bad Harv". During a battle with Rupert Thorne and his thugs, an explosion caused by a live wire falling into a vat of chemicals scarred half of Dent's body and damaged his mind, causing "Big Bad Harv" to take over Dent's persona. He began referring to himself as Two-Face.
Two-Face was voiced by Richard Moll, who is best known for his role as Bull Shannon, the towering baliff on the 80's NBC TV series "Night Court".
Bruce Wayne. Bruce Wayne is a billionare industrialist whose parents were shot, and killed by a mugger right in front of him as a child. Because of this, Bruce decided to devote his wealth and his life to fighting crime as Batman, Gotham City's dark knight.
The voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman was done by actor Kevin Conroy, who has gone on to voice both Bruce Wayne/Batman in other DC comic universe cartoons, including "Justice League", "Superman: The Animated Series" (the episode "World's Finest" Parts 1/2), the movie "Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm", and the video game "Batman: Arkham Asylum".
