The Dark Knight battles crime in Gotham City with occasional help from Robin and Batgirl.
Heir to the Wayne family fortune, Bruce Wayne () lives by day as a seemingly lavish playboy millionaire socialite, but by night assumes the role of his crime-fighting alter-ego: the caped crusader known as The Batman. Throughout the show, Batman receives help from sidekicks Dick Grayson/Robin () and Barbara Gordon/Batgirl (Melissa Gilbert), as well as Police Commissioner James Gordon (), in protecting the streets of Gotham City from a large rogues gallery of criminals, lunatics, and nemeses.
This animated series conveys the dark mood of the original "Batman" comic books. Unlike the light action TV series, Gotham Citys Caped Crusader, Bruce Wayne (), is sometimes moody. And Robins alter ego, Dick Grayson (), has a more-mature personality than in the original series.
