GOTHAM HIGH - The Batman Cartoon That Didn't Get Made

Here are some pictures that have been heavily circulating around the Internet. They are Concept Art for an idea for a new animated TV Show called GOTHAM HIGH. Basically, it's the entire World of Batman as teenagers. Yes, teenagers, ha! You have Bruce Wayne, Barbara Gordon, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, The Penguin, Clayface, Two-Face, Bane, etc... I have to admit the artwork is very good and the character's quirks & personalities are all caught pretty well ( Be sure to click on the 1st image for a large, more detailed, photo ). But, personally, I'm extremely happy that this never got off the ground. Now, some people have said that if it did get green-lit that it would have been fun... because it's such a train wreck. Plus, one friend said he would have liked to have seen the Action Figures made from this show because the character designs are kinda neat. What do you think?

The art is nice, but this sounds like a horrible concept. Thanks for sharing.

It looks amusing, but I'm going to guess this wasn't seriously proposed as a series... if for no other reason than the caption on the first image. Still, I enjoyed it.

To be honest, I think this would have been a great T.V. series considering most people these days are just consuming all the other crap producers are making. And Batman as an original creation so long ago, needs a revival. And this could be it!
