Mine would be the 1989 version.

I think,therefore i am a hamster.
For me I'm not sure. I pretty much like them all to a certain degree. I know I've mentioned I INITIALLY didn't like the darker tones of the Nolan movies. However I have come to appreciate them as good action flicks and good batman movies. I will be seeing Rises when it comes out.
I guess I don't have a favorite that I can pinpoint. I have them all on dvd except for returns and forever - I do have Batman and Robin but I think I bought it used for cheap (the Clooney one).
I would definitely have to say the first Tim Burton movie with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson is the best of the "pre" Nolan movies.Donatello - The Shredder? Michelangelo - Maybe all that hardware is for making coleslaw?
The 1943 version, of course.
WHAM! POW! BIFF!

In any case, it was later edited into a single feature, as was its sequel, Batman and Robin (1949), that's how I saw it.
Batman was first released in theaters on July 16, 1943. In 1965, the serial was re-released in theaters as An Evening with Batman and Robin, in one complete marathon showing. This re-release was successful enough that it inspired the creation of the 1960s television series Batman, starring Adam West and Burt Ward.

My oldest boy was a Batman fanatic from about age 3 in 1973 from watching reruns. In approximately 1975 the local Buick dealer had a deal where Batman and Robin would be there for fans to visit with. Batman didn't make it. Robin(?) showed up about an hour late. So drunk he could hardly stumble over to a chair and fall into it. Hadn't shaved for many days, hadn't bathed for many weeks. Although only about 30, he appeared to be in his 50's and his suit looked like a grubby, dirty, stained old pair of long johns with a ratty cape. He mumbled at the kids a little and handed out some pictures, but was too drunk to sign them. My 5 y/o was speechless. All the way home he sat over on the passenger side of the car and would look at me and open his mouth like he was going to say something and then just shut it and look out the windshield, over and over again.
Batman 1966 speaks to me from the dreams of my childhood and I can easily watch and enjoy, but The Dark Knight I can turn on any time, any where and always make time to watch it! I am hoping the 3rd Nolan movie works at least nearly as well.

But from your statement you seem to know they were all "edited" together to make a "movie"
As was the "sequel"
That would be like saying, they put all the 3 stooges movie/tv shorts into one long video so that is a "3 stooges movie"
I have 2 or 3 VHS tapes around somewhere of all the individual "episode's" of the serial/s from way back then.
They did not even have any kind of a batmobile, it was just some old jalopy (stock standard car) from the time period!!
I bought them for my son like 20 years ago because he was a massive batman fan!!
Oh yeah, seeing as i gave Yoda crap recently, i guess i should say which movie i liked best.
I'd have to say by far the "Nolan" versions.
From day one of the original!!!
Dark and almost evil!!!
He was a vigilante, for 1 reason, to seek revenge, and dish out justice for those that escaped it, on criminals, because at an early age, with his own eyes, he watched his parents killed for basically nothing!!!
The Batman movies, 1989 and early to mid 1990's were okay, but they were all to comical, far out, whacky, psychedelic...
But they were the best at the time.
Tim Burton, i think, did waaaay too much Acid in his day!!!
And the other monkey directors just followed suit.....
Then again even though it is way dated, and crazy comical, and watching it today you think, i actually thought that was gerat!!!
The old original 1966 version does hold a special place as i grew up watching the TV series watching Adam West as Batman, Burt Ward as Robin, VINCENT PRICE as Egghead!!!
Cesar Romero as the Joker!!!
Frank Gorshin as the Riddler!!!
The two different Catwoman's!!!
Burgess Meredith as the Penguin!!!
The list goes on and on of the famous actors that played villians in the tv series....
But i like the "Nolan" vesion's MUCH better than anything previously by a long shot!!
I can't wait for the new one!!!

This is full length feature movie.
If I have to pick one, "Batman Returns" is my favorite. "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" are tied for second, but very close.
When I was in grade school, I watched the Batman TV series. However, the super villains in the series were a bit puzzling to me. I was reading the comic books even before the series premiered, and Batman was basically a detective in a costume with cool gadgets solving fairly pedestrian crimes in the comic book version of that day.
That and Starblazers!!!
But that was the soft version for TV of the time, as i stated before, He was a vigilante, for 1 reason, to seek revenge, and dish out justice for those that escaped it, on criminals, because at an early age, with his own eyes, he watched his parents killed for basically nothing!!!
To put it simply, HE WAS PISSED!!!
Oh yeah, i forgot this when i made my first post....
