Slightly different than "Batman: The Animated Series." The series takes place approximately three years after the last episode of Batman which ran on Fox. Dick Grayson has grown up taken the costumed identity of Nightwing, with Tim Drake taking over as Robin.Written by

The Riddler only has one line in the series. "Hey diddle diddle, time for a riddle!" Though technically, he has 2 in the series, but the 2nd line is shared with another character in which he simply chants "Yeah!" After Harley Quinn says "We demand money!". He shares this line with Scarface. Although in a crossover with Superman, he is seen teamed with Bane and Mad Hatter. Even then though, he doesn't say more than 3 lines. See more »
Although this show goes by "Batman: The Animated Series Volume 4" on video, the original intro from "The New Batman/Superman Adventures" can be seen as a bonus feature if the viewer selects "Play All" on the DVD's main menu, in addition to the original BTAS intro. See more »
I still see it as part of Batman: The Animated Series.
The New Batman Adventures is the sequel that The Animated Series deserved, and its style-differentiation is justified yet it still feels like the sibling to its predecessor.
The New Batman Adventures has more stylized character designs than before, and while that may be off-putting to some, Batman has never looked sharper than he does here; at least I say that with a lot of love.
Batman has always been empowered with rich stories and The New Batman Adventures continues that tradition beautifully. It is a sequel to Batman: The Animated Series, but it stands its own ground just fine.
