I honestly can't remember,I assume it was TAS as my grandpa would let me pick out 1 comic every time he re-priced them,I miss those days,much simpler times...

I was introduced to Batman by the comics. I was very young when I first saw the re runs of Batman 1960's TV series, in the 80's, but I didn't enjoy it very much. I prefered reading the comics and watching Knight Rider and The A Team on TV. lol. :D

I was hooked on Batman after watching Batman (1989, Tim Burton).

The 60's shows... well, reruns of it anyway, in the mid 70's really, on Saturday afternoons.

Yeah my Bat experience was pretty much the same. My parents seemed to like Batman the most outta any super hero(s) I liked. I guess because he's really so normal compared to everyone else. Which is why he's my favorite super hero. Then TAS when I was in 1st grade :3 I used to watch that every day after school until it ended. And the 60s show when it came on TV there. I have my old Batman bedsheets from the Batman movie with DiVito in my car to cover the seats when my dog rides with me.

I first saw Batman by accident,while I was wonder in the video shop ,and I catch the view of the series,It’s surprise to me that it's not a cartoon only for kids .

I never realised what an influence BTAS was to everyone else getting into Batman! And yet they stopped making them boo hoo

I'm pretty sure it was TAS, because I was too young to go see either Batman or Batman Returns at the time.

The 60's program used to be on early saturday mornings when I was about 3-4, along with Transformers. Though I Think it was Tim Burton's film many years later that made me a fan.

I'm a little confused as to what is what up there. The Adam West show, along with Batman in 60's cartoons (reruns, on the USA Network! :p), is where I saw him first as a kid. That made me a fan and the '89 Batman by Tim Burton skyrocketed that. It was also the first real movie, besides Bambi, I think, I ever saw in theaters. I was 9 at the time. Ghosbusters 2 came out like 6 months later. What a great time to be a kid!

Batman Returns was then a must-see and the TAS show to follow was like, wow! Up there with Transformers and The Real Ghosbusters in my all-time favorite cartoons :) I never could afford/knew where to get the comics, so I didn't read them, except A Death in the Family sometime in Middle School from the library. lol, what a book to have in the library! Little much for my preteen eyes... They also had the novels of Ninja Gaiden there, as well as other types of books, which were also a bit graphic. Crazy times.

I first learned about Batman when I was a little kid watching The Superfriends on Saturday morning. It wasn't long after that when I started buying Detective Comics and The Brave and The Bold.

The Brave and The Bold was an awesome comic book series because there were SGT Rock/Batman crossover stories.

I was introduced by my dad, He loved Batman and I got it from there.
I remember having a Batman game on the PC that you played with a joystick when i was like 3 years old.
I used to watch TAS all the time and i remember going to this animation place with my parents i was really young and some of the people there were animating batman which as a 4 year old kid I thought was intense...
No idea where, somewhere in london?
I remember for my 5th birthday i got a Batmobile, Batman costume and a Batmask - And "Batman" showed up at my birthday party, watching back at the video of me and all the kids there like :eek: thinking it really was Batman is pretty funny haha

Ahhh the nostalgia is just pouring out now, I'll shut up haha

I can't remember if I saw Batman '89, Returns or TAS first. I grew up watching all of them. And I have a ****load of Batman action figures and toys. Did anyone have the TAS Batmobile with the Bat-plane that would eject from the the back? My one's broken I think. :(

I can't remember that far back. Batman was like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. I don't remember when I learned about him. I only remember when I learned he wasn't real.

I chose Batman:TAS, since thats what made me a Batman "fan", more than Batman:89 did. Never was and still not a big super hero fan, but there's something special about Bats.
