About This Card Series:   This is the first set of cards (100 total) based on TVs "Batman: The Animated Series".  I really didn't care for this cartoon too much.  The animation looks too choppy and the characters are not drawn realistic.  Still, some of the character designs and gadgets looked kind of cool.  And you must admit the merchandising behind this cartoon and its many incarnations has been wide and varied.

Featured Cards:  I won't display every card from this series because I don't think every card is necessarily attractive or otherwise special.  What you'll see here are some of the cards I think stand out.  I hope you enjoy these cards, too!

#8:  Batgirl
The women characters in BTAS came off looking a lot better than the triangular men.  Batgirl was drawn cute in her own way.

#26:  Poison Ivy
Poison Ivy
Poison Ivy, like many of the show's women characters, was drawn pretty sexy in that quasi-1940s style.  She actually looks a lot better in this cartoon than in many of her comic book incarnations.

#30:  Talia
The sexy daughter of villain Ra's Al Ghul.  Ra's was a longtime Batman villain that we actually heard very little about before the extremely popular live-action film, "Batman Begins" in 2005.  Talia is one of those Catwoman kind of characters; sort of a villainess, yet a potential love interest for Batman.

#32:  Mr. Freeze
Mr. Freeze
The odd drawing style of BTAS works when it comes to bizarre villains.  Bad guys like Mr. Freeze look kind of cool drawn in this manner.  Heroes like Batman, Robin, and Commissioner Gordon are way messed up.

#35:  Mad Hatter
Mad Hatter
A neat card design of the crazy man with the mind-manipulating hats!

#42:  Batplane
Many of Batman's vehicles were also well-realized in the cartoon.  The Batmobile, however, was a big disappointment.

#43:  Batboat
