The year 1992 was a monumental year for Batman. Following the success of the live-action Batman Returns starring Michael Keaton, Warner Bros. took advantage of the ongoing “Bat-mania” and gratified fans’ need for more Dark Knight by releasing arguably the definitive version of our favorite caped crusader Batman in cartoon form.
Drawing huge inspiration from Tim Burton’s Batman from 1989, Batman: The Animated Series isn’t exactly an extension of the cult classic, but rather its own entity which became an instant hit amongst fans and is still widely regarded by a lot of people to this day as the best adaptation of the Dark Knight in any medium outside the comics.

With that in mind, here are 10 of the most underrated Batman: The Animated Series episodes you should be rewatching!
Disclaimer: I’m putting some episodes from The New Batman Adventures since, you know, it’s still canon to the BTAS saga.
