I had a tough time trying to find a copy of Batman: The Complete Animated Series Blu-ray/Digital box set on Black Friday. Thankfully, I was able to secure one. If you can't find one or don't need all the frills, Warner Bros. has released a Batman: The Complete Animated Series Blu-ray/Digital box set. Check out a clip from the 90-minute documentary, "The Heart of Batman", above. #AFJ4LIFE

Press Release: With copies of the popular Batman: The Complete Animated Series Deluxe Limited Edition nearly sold out, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment have made available – effective today – the streamlined, content-only Batman: The Complete Animated Series Blu-ray/Digital box set ($89.99 SRP). The 12-disc set (plus a digital copy) features all 109 remastered episodes of the landmark television series along with hours of bonus features, the heralded 90-minute “The Heart of Batman” documentary, and the recently-remastered, fan favorite animated films Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero.
Amazon will continue to offer Batman: The Complete Animated Series Deluxe Limited Edition Blu-ray box sets while supplies last.
“Demand for the most acclaimed animated super hero television series in history has been tremendous – nearly all of the 70,000 Limited Edition Blu-ray box sets have been sold across North America,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “So that all interested fans have the opportunity to own this beloved series, WBHE felt the need to create another option to accommodate everyone.”
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the Emmy Award-winning Batman: The Animated Series captured the imaginations of generations during its initial broadcast airing from 1992-1995, setting the standard for super hero storytelling for the past quarter-century with its innovative designs, near-perfect voice cast and landmark approach to DC’s iconic characters and stories. The series garnered a Primetime Emmy Award in 1993 for Outstanding Animated Program, along with three additional Emmy wins and 13 total Emmy nominations.
Batman: The Complete Animated Series Blu-ray/Digital box set’s enhanced content includes 25 featurettes, two popular animated films; introductions to five episodes by producer Bruce Timm; and commentary on 12 episodes by various combinations of the production team: Bruce Timm, Eric Radomski, Paul Dini, Kevin Altieri, Michael Reaves, Boyd Kirkland, Shirley Walker, Glen Murakami, Dan Riba, and James Tucker.
