As Batman: The Animated Series blows out the candles on its big 25th birthday cake, the show's producers are revealing lots of interesting new nuggets surrounding the series' characters and storylines that played out in 85 episodes over four seasons.

SYFY WIRE joined producers Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett at NYCC, where they took the shroud off their redefining explorations of Mr. Freeze and providing him with a human dimension, replacing the chain-smoking Tim Curry with Mark Hamill for the voice of the Joker, and their proudest moments and favorite scenes throughout the entire Batman: The Animated Series run.

Pull up a chair and listen to the creative pair as they trot happily down memory lane during the groundbreaking show's milestone silver anniversary.
