In Merry Little Batman, Young Damien Wayne has some very large boots to fill as he is called upon to save Christmas when the real Batman is called away.


This is so fun and so off the wall I scarcely know where to begin. Gotham City has been pretty much cleaned up and is crime free, and there is going to be a terrific Christmas celebration — which the Joker, of course, plans to ruin. With Batman called away on emergency business, it is up to his son Damien, who appears to be about eight years old in this animated fantasy, to kick butt and save the holiday.

And then there’s the Bat Beard. And that Batman Smells song. You know the one.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based on characters from DC Comics,, Merry Little Batman features the voices of Yonas Kibreab, Luke Wilson, James Cromwell, and David Hornsby, and is directed by Mike Roth (Regular Show) from a screenplay by Morgan Evans (Teen Titans Go!) and Jase Ricci (Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham). Roth also serves as executive producer, alongside Sam Register (Looney Tunes Cartoons).

Merry Little Batman arrives December 8 to Prime Video.
