Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 11/15/16

This movie is great fun! It's a modern animated Batman movie, yet they use the voices of the surviving actors of the Batman TV show: Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman).  The other voices, of Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Alfred, Commissioner Gordon, Aunt Harriet and Chief O'Hara (no Batgirl, sadly!) are done by seasoned voiceover actors who do a great job of imitating the late actors who acted on the old 1966 show. Yet they also put their own spin on the characters.

The old show from 1966 was kind of cool, in its own way, but it was also very corny and now dated. They somehow managed to update the show, yet make it even more cool!  It has a lot of humor and will make you laugh. This is a must-have for any fan of the old Batman TV series. I hope they make more of these movies.  The DC animated superhero movies are always awesome, anyway. This one is extra-special.

I would say, the only downside at all is that Adam West's voice is not quite what is used to be. You know, he's almost 90, so that's to be expected! It's amazing that he can do this with much energy at all. Kudos to him and all of the others. They are fabulous. This movie is a lot of fun.

As if the movie itself is not great enough, the DVD also comes with a couple of good featurettes about the making of the movie as well as some trailers for other upcoming DC movies.


Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment take Batman fans on a journey into the iconic past with the full-length animated Batman feature film – Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. The film features the vocal performances of Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman).

Pricing: Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders is available now on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack including Digital HD ($24.98 SRP) and DVD ($19.98 SRP).
