Default Batman: The Complete Animated Series

I just saw this set on AMZ on DVD and was half tempted to pick it up. It seems like something that would possibly come to blu in light of TDK's success. I can only hope.

The new set looks very good. Sure, I own the whole DCAU on DVD. I'm half tempted to pick up the new set just for the extras.

However, I don't think we'll see this series come to Blu for a VERY LONG TIME. Restoration would need to be done.

Besides, I'm not sure Justice League sold very well.

Would love to see this but, yeah, needs restoration and I'm not sure Warner would spend the money.... at least not this early in format. But eventually maybe.... at least I hope so.

I would love to see it on blu as well. Along with the 90's Spiderman series.

This was likely mastered at standard def. The only way to make it HD would be to have a computer trace the lines (essentially a fancy upconvert) or go and re-photograph the cells, many of which they probably do not have anymore. You could fit the whole series in standard def on two or three Blu-rays, and it would look slightly better than DVD, but I don't think there's a lot of market for that right now.

Guess its not as simple as I thought... makes it harder not to pick it up on DVD now.

Well, Batman The Animated Series is an important animated program. It deserves to be taken care of, and given proper treatment. This is a pinnacle series for Children's Programing, and definitely some of the best Animated work done in modern times.

Let's hope it's on the menu.

Ace of Sevens is right. It would take some work since it was most likely mastered for TV resolution back in the 90's.
