Kevin Conroy: My favorite episode of Batman: The Animated Series would probably be "Perchance to Dream." I love many of the episodes, but that one… what’s made the character fun for me to play is his complexity, his darkness. All of that is rooted in the loss of his parents when he was a child, and anything that deals with that psychology and that psychodrama that he lives in makes it fun for me as an actor.
Kevin Conroy: In that episode, “Perchance to Dream," he is sent back into his childhood when he’s drugged, and he confronts his father. He inhabits his old, young self. It’s such a psychological journey he goes through that I loved working on as an actor.
Loren Lester: “Old Wounds," because I got to play Robin and Nightwing. What I loved about doing this show was transitioning from Robin into Nightwing.
Loren Lester: In this episode we kind of took a look back and I got to be Robin again. I had been Nightwing for several episodes, and then I got a chance to be Robin again.
Tara Strong: My favorite episode of the original animated series is “Girls Night Out," and it is because it embodied everything girlie, with all the strength you could ever want. There are these two incredibly powerful women that give little girls and little boys something to look up to and aspire to be like.
Tara Strong: We had a tremendous amount of fun voicing that episode. When you watch it they’re kicking ass, but then there’s another scene where they’re giggling and towels on their head, it was a great, great time. That’s my favorite.
Diane Pershing: I actually have two: “Harley and Ivy," when the two of them meet and we establish this wonderful relationship between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. Then the one called “Home and Garden," where Ivy gets to -even if it’s pretend- have a husband and children, which deepen her heart, she would love to have. Of course, they turn out to be pod people. Also, she’s actually still very evil and she’s being carted off to god knows where at the end.
Diane Pershing: Those are my two favorites. I like them because I had layers as an actor to deal with the complexity of the characters. She wasn’t just black and white evil, dah, dah, dah, she had an actual story to tell, and we all do. You know? I love that.
Eric Radomski: “On Leather Wings,” the very first episode we got back complete. It was the embodiment of everything that we intended for the series to be, even though the first 90-second piece that Bruce and I produced definitely represented the art direction that we intended. But to sustain it for 22 minutes, let alone 85 episodes, was really proved in that first episode.
Eric Radomski: It was a big sigh of relief almost two years after we had started the project originally. To see that come together, to put the sound and music to it, it just sort of fulfilled everything that we had hoped it would be. It also gave us the confidence that we knew we could deliver the rest of the series. All the challenges were there anyway, but we had sort of broken through the membrane of what we had hoped it would be and very pleased with the quality of what we ended up with.
