Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995)
Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski designed the series by closely emulating the Tim Burton films’ “otherworldly timelessness,” incorporating period features such as black-and-white title cards, police blimps (even though no such thing has existed, Bruce Timm has stated he found it to fit the period they were going for), 40s influenced look and a “vintage” color scheme in a largely film noir-influenced style. The distinctive visual combination of film noir imagery and Art Deco designs with a very dark color scheme was called “Dark Deco” by the producers.
They don’t make ‘em like this anymore. By far my favorite cartoon growing up. Couldn’t wait to get out of school, grab a Fruit-By-The-Foot and turn this on.
