This is background information and production notes of the episode Beware the Gray Ghost, from season one of Batman: The Animated Series.

Production Notes[]

  • Ted Dymer is visually based on and voiced by series producer Bruce Timm. The video store clerk resembles Paul Dini, Timm's writing partner, who was quite heavy at the time.
  • Ted Dymer himself appears to be the basis for The Batman villain Cosmo Krank, aka Toymaker.
  • Adam West, who voices the Gray Ghost, played Batman in the 1960s. Timm and Dini have stated that they wanted West from the beginning to voice Simon Trent, and they would not have done the episode had he refused, since they feared he would be offended by an animated parody of his typecasting. West, however, was happy to voice the character and it brought him newfound respect among Batman fans.
