beware the batman is not for little kids

i think beware the batman is a amazing show but its not for little kids because its rated TVPG V and is very dark and vilonte mr pig threatens to cut off alfreds leg humpty dumpty traps characters in nutcracker bombs and falls off a building while saying a very creepy nursery ryme and theres another episode were humpty dumpty comes back and sets a bunch of traps for batman like a room filled with pendulum acid a room with tiles were if you step on them you fall and a tiny eggshaped prison and theres lots of guns and just has more mature plots with that being said beware the batman is for preteens and teens and i dont recommend it for anyone under the age of 14

Good enough

This is another Batman show and tries to mix this up by adding different villains like Anarky, Professor Pyg and Mister Toad instead of the usual villains like Joker, Poison Ivy and Bane. This show doesn’t really offer anything new aside from a focus on characters that are not usually in a Batman show and a focus on the detective aspect of Batman’s character. It is also one of the least scary Batman shows out there mainly because of the art style. While it does have good detailing and even makes texture noticeable, the art style is stil very simple and the music creates an either fun or serious atmosphere, never scary. I would also like to note that this Batman series has one of the smallest numbers of merchendise. It only got one Happy Meal toy line, a short-lived comic series, one adult collector Batman figure and a child’s costume. That is a small number for a Batman show.
