17. Batman Unlimited

The Batman Unlimited franchise is much more famous for the trilogy of animated movies it produced between 2014 and 2015 - not-to-mention the toy line those films were made to sell - but it also had its own animated webseries.

The series was basically a sequence of shorts released to YouTube on a weekly basis to showcase the Caped Crusader and the Bat-Family's extensive array of weaponry. Each one was its own fun and unique adventure that featured some of Batman's most infamous villains going up against the hero and all of his cool gadgets.

The shorts didn't run longer than three minutes and rarely made the most of its talented voice cast, but for what it was, Batman Unlimited was very entertaining.

16. Batwheels

One of the more recent Bat-centric installments, Batwheels is a lovable animated series for kids that focuses on the Bat-Family's vehicles, who come together to form the Batwheels. Think Cars but with Batman.

The ensemble of vehicles is led by the Batmobile, whose name is Bam, as he attempts to keep Gotham City safe with the help of his allies and friends. Though Batman himself does appear on occasion (voiced by none other than Ethan Hawke), the show centers on its title heroes, who sell it very well.

The show's plotlines aren't the most complex but they aren't supposed to be. Instead, we just have light-hearted, family-friendly fun and that's more than okay. Batwheels wears its heart on its sleeve, it's fun through and through, and it's exactly what it's supposed to be.
