Play Batman: Gotham City Rush

We’re big fans of Batman here at Toonbarn, in his many cartoon incarnations. And while the Batman in the Brave and the Bold series may have been lighter than the one we have grown to love from Batman: The Animated Series, we’re still big fans, because hey – it’s the caped crusader! What’s not to love about the Dark Knight, even if he’s slightly less dark than what we wanted? ...

The Dark Knight rises to Gotham City Impostors

The world of Batman can be a scary one. I mean, sure, it’s cool to read about or watch, via comics and movies. It’s all sorts of colorful and cranky, and we ain’t got nothing against capes! But then you start dealing with maniacal masterminds like the Joker and his goons, and you realize you shouldn’t be playing around. Actually, wait… maybe we should be doing ...

Pilot episode for Batman the Animated Series revealed

Roughly 20 years ago, the world of animation was about to change.
