The Saturday Comics: Batman (1943)

Last week I brought you an early Superman cartoon, this week I present the first installment of the first live-action Batman film, chapter one of the 1943 serial. Unlike Superman, Batman didn’t have a radio show or a classic cartoon until Filmation came along in the sixties (and Filmation and Fleischer are two entirely different breeds.) However, each spawned a pair of movie serials.  Sit back and enjoy Batman’s ornate crime-fighting desk and the lack of attention Batman and Robin pay to their secret identities.

This the first of two serial starring Batman and Robin.
