The New Adventures of Batman (The Batman/Tarzan Adventure Hour) - Adam West & Burt Ward Voice The Roles That Made Them Famous!

Report Says The New Adventures of Batman Will Hit DVD In June

Posted by David Lambert
Our good friend Earl Kress, award-winning writer of animated fare such as Pinky and the Brain, has posted info at his website about The New Adventures of Batman. This is the 1977 Filmation-produced cartoon which was aired during the CBS Saturday morning lineup.

Adam West and Burt Ward, from the live-action late-'60s Batman series, returned a decade later to the roles which made them famous, albeit as voice actors. Melendy Britt (who later played Adora/She-Ra) voiced Batgirl and Catwoman, and producer Lou Scheimer voiced both the Bat-Computer and the friendly-but-clumsy imp, Bat-Mite. Although it wasn't the first Batman cartoon Filmation had ever produced, many consider it to be the best!

According to the info Earl has posted, The New Adventures of Batman will hit DVD on June 26th, along with a similar approach to The New Adventures of Superman. Warner Home Video hasn't officially announced this yet, nor has it even reached our usual sources in the retail industry, but we'll bring that info to you just as soon as we get it, probably next week if that street date is correct. Stay tuned!

Our thanks to longtime reader Greg Chenoweth for the heads-up about Earl's blog post. There's also info there about other Warner animated releases, which we've either covered in the past or else are covering this morning.
