Also, Kevin Conroy stopped differentiating between Bruce Wayne's voice and
Batman's voice - a crime, in my opinion.



I thought that was because Batman was speaking with fellow Justice Leaguers,
and so did not feel the need to disguise his voice.

The Cat and the Claw Part I" aired in the Saturday morning slot, I believe. "On Leather Wings" aired on Sunday primetime the following day. I recall the latter being the first episode I watched and taped on VHS, but I also remember watching the second part of "The Cat and the Claw" on its original airdate and having seen the first part. So either they reaired part one, or I did see the first Saturday morning showing. BTAS was the first show I taped religiously, but I tossed out all my tapes when I got the DVDs, so I can't go back and check.
++++++++

I distinctly remember missing the Saturday morning premiere of "The Cat and The Claw", but catching the Sunday night premiere of "On Leather Wings", which blew me away.

I could be wrong, but SUPERMAN: TAS didn't seem to soar quite so high. It doesn't appear to have left a lasting impression in the same way that BATMAN: TAS did.

I think S:TAS being cut off short actually helped the later TimmVerse, leaving plenty of story fodder for JUSTICE LEAGUE.   The public's mistrust of Superman after Darkseid's manipulation, and Supergirl's feud with Granny Goodness.  The beginnings of Project Cadmus.  JL and JLU also pick up the torch of the Luthor/Brainiac storyline.  Amazingly, all of it dovetails to a satisfying end in JLU.

(thankfully they did not pursue the implications of a brainwashed Superman fathering a child with Lashina.   It's a shame they couldn't keep their mitts off a Bruce/Barbara romance, and they upped the icky factor with her being Dick's ex too.  Brrrr.)

Some more stellar DCAU casting:

Clancy Brown as Luthor
Michael Ironside as Darkseid
Powers Boothe as Grodd
Alan Rachins as the Clock King
David Warner as Ras al Ghul
Michael Ansara as Victor Fries
Ed Asner as Granny Goodness (!)
Michael Dorn as Kalibak
Michael York pulling triple duty as Count Veritgo, Kanto, and Ares
Arte Johnson as Virman Vunderbar (Laugh-In fans would get it)

The voice casting on BTAS really broke the mold. Before this show, mostly, villains cackled and heros were sonorous. Here, the voices really fit the characters.

A lot of credit needs to go to Andrea Romano, who handled the voice casting and direction for the series. She really understood what the show was trying to be.

Agreed, Andrew. I've heard Andrea Romano speak on various DVD extras. She gets it.

Not to brag (OK, I'm gonna...a little!) I got to spend a couple hours with Kevin Conroy today.  Can't say in what capacity, but I will say that he was salt of the earth.  A genuinely nice guy.  Not a childhood dream come true as I was 25 when B:TAS premiered, but a thrill nonetheless.

You can brag, Matt, but as I said earlier, at least us Brits got to see B: TAS *before* you Americans. ;-)

Seriously, glad to hear you got to meet him.

I am by no means a fan of Batman particularly, but I sure loved this cartoon.  The writing, the design, the voice-work...one of the all time greats.

Well damn, Matt. I hope he did That Voice for you.
