Watching this for the first time why does Robin just suddenly appear in the show with no explanation?
>>

You're watching it in the wrong order.
>>
>>77743241
Keep watching faggot
Or skip to Robin's Reckoning
>>
Dick's in college at the time of the series. Too busy with education to Robin as much as he used to.
>>
>>77743241
They explain it later on. Basically, the network wanted Robin to help boost ratings and get kids more connected because I guess kids get bored when there isn't a kid to relate to in the program? I dunno, I never had a problem with a lone protagonist without a kid sidekick even as a kid. I was all alone and had no friends, so I knew if I was a superhero, I wouldn't have a sidekick either.

>>77743419
Let him alone

>>77743255
If you watch in production order he shows up in Ep 2 with no explanation then goes away for many many episodes
>>
Not sure why it matters, pretty much every episode is a one-off.
>>
Too bad the art sucked when they changed over to WB.

> wanting another goddamn take on a superhero's origin story instead of just fucking amazing episodes of them battling awesome villains.

Why are you even watching the best superhero cartoon ever made if you're going to be a faggot about it?
>>
>>77744071
I always wondered who that guy with the bird logo was when I was a kid

>>77744071
TNBA was so shit. People hated the redesigns (and rightfully so), but the writing took a huge hit too.

They fucking ruined Bruce. Remember when Bruce was allowed to crack a smile once in a while?
>>
I guess they figured "Kids know who Robin is. We can give him an origin later, just get him in there."
>>

>mfw I thought the show got better the further it went
>>
>>77743241
Because only autists care about a direct linear explanation of shit. Children could understand that Robin is Batman's partner and he is there sometimes and sometimes is not.

The big hit was the voice. Kevin Conroy stopped using Burcevoice for Bruce and used Batvoice full time. The dichotomy faded.
>>
>>77744071
Fucking EVERYTHING sucked when it became TNBA. That sub standard shitery later culminated in the clusterfuck that was fucking batman beyond and the absolute shitfest return of the joker thing.
Fucks sake that shit was retarded. And goddamnit that bitch harley was still alive and had science dyke babies with ivy?

The only decent future thing to come out of Timms and co's pen was warbird.

glad im not the only one who feels this way

>>77746132
Came in here to say exactly this. Only modern cape movies have started this notion that every character needs a fucking complete origin story and set-up before being used as a regular character.
>>
>>77744071
I kind of liked the more angular look for some things, and some characters got better character designs (Scarecrow and Ivy, for example). Some characters' designs became shit, though (Joker's and the Mad Hatter's).

The stories weren't as good (became more villain-of-the-week-ish and it had fewer of those episodes where Batman would take on some normal dude), but it didn't become awful or anything, it was still a tight show.

What was worse is that this laid the groundwork for the rest of the DCAU.

I'd have LOVED a Superman Animated Series that would rightfully have been a followup to the original BTAS,

Instead we got simpler, triangular shaped body designs and bare bones animation.

This. Watch it in proper order.

>>77743241
Because they didn't waste time with bullshit. We didn't get Batman's past and training as a first episode either and that was a good thing.
This being said there is a double episode about Dick becoming Robin.

>>77744071
It went gradually downhill anyway.

TAS Season 1 and 2 : fantastic
Season 3 : It's good but just not as good
Season 4 : what the fuck is this shit?
etc

Thankfully the animated movies are good though, no matter the period.

Mystery of the Batwoman was kinda boring.
