Trivia

The Scarecrow's voice actor Henry Polic II had problems with throat while playing Scarecrow in season one, episode thirty-one, "Dreams in Darkness". That is why his voice in Batman: The Animated Series: Dreams in Darkness (1992) is different from his voice in Batman: The Animated Series: Fear of Victory (1992) and Batman: The Animated Series: Nothing to Fear (1992). After Batman: The Animated Series: Dreams in Darkness (1992), the appearances of Scarecrow was reduced. Although Scarecrow appears in the episode Batman: The Animated Series: Trial (1994), he has no dialogue in this episode. This was because Henry Polic II was recuperating from throat surgery during this episode's production. See more »

The real Batman
28 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

This program thanks to people like Alan Burnett, Paul Dini, and Bruce W. Timm made this show the most faithful adaption of the Dark Knight ever. This show was brilliant!!!! It had terrific animation, story line, character development, and action sequences. Regardless of weather you're a Batman fan or not this is a show not to be missed.
