The only slight correction, is I'm pretty sure of all the episodes of The New Batman Adventures, "Over the Edge" was the sole one done digital. @James Harvey?
To my knowledge, yup. Timm even mentions as such in an interview from a few years back (I'd need time to dig it up).

They do talk about in the episode commentary around 2:40 to 3:48. Murakami points it out but Timm said it was more 50/50. Since it was an episode TMS was doing preproduction on, they asked the crew if they could try and animate it digitally to show them what they could do -- camera work and backgrounds are composited digitally -- but it's still done with old school techniques, too.

The World's Finest has published its review of the Batman: The Complete Animated Series - Deluxe Limited Edition Blu-ray release. In short, the best Batman cartoon ever made has simply never looked better, and that's not hyperbole. The HD remaster quality is staggering and genuinely stunning. Tack on an engaging and interesting documentary on the show's place in history, house it all in a handsome box set, and you have one release that can not be missed. Click here to read the complete review!


Also, be sure to check out Yojimbo's review of the Batman: The Complete Animated Series - Deluxe Limited Edition, too!

For anyone concerned about the SD digital copy, I just got an email from Vudu that included a code to upgrade my SD copy for an HDX and they added on Mask of the Phantasm and Sub-Zero, which were not part of the initial redemption. I now have those HDX versions in my library.
So if you already redeemed you BTAS Complete series code and got the SD versions keep an eye on your email. As for those who are yet to redeem, I think you're probably safe to do so.
It all worked out in the end.

Surprisingly, my local Wal-Mart had a copy so I didn't hesitate to buy it. Since I bought it in stores, I didn't have to deal with the beat up packaging problem, so it was a win. So if you haven't bought it yet and don't want to take the risk on Amazon, try and see if your Wal-Mart has it.

First thing I did was carefully take the discs out of those sleeves and place them in temporary cases- I'll have to make custom covers later. I really don't know why certain studios are so keen on this type of packaging- don't they know how easily you can scratch the discs? Plus once the paper sleeves get worn it's really easy for the discs to just fall out if you move the packaging in a certain way.

So far I've re-watched "Pretty Poison", "It's Never Too Late", and the fan favorite [/sarcasm] "I've Got Batman in My Basement". I'm definitely impressed with the video quality/restoration. This sort of thing makes me dismayed that Looney Tunes is no longer a priority for WB, 'cause I've missed these classic cartoon restoration projects.

I'll be interested to finally watch the rest of "TNBA". I've only seen a select few episodes.

Just FYI, I ordered my copy from Amazon just last week, so it didn't come in the initial shipments. It arrive in a box rather than a bubble envelope, so it looks like they may have corrected that issue for any future shipments.

My personal synopsis: I'm not the most energetic or enthusiastic person you'll ever meet, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun. Generally, I'm pretty introverted and usually play video games, watch anime, and also study in the field of IT. I'm a huge music fanatic, as well. And I listen to pretty much everything except country. My favorites being trap, jazz, and metal.
anyone else surprised that new Paw Patrol one hour special are now Nick's #1 most watched premieres in 2018 so far?
I just saw The Grinch in IMAX, it was great!
