Continuing to make available rare and hard-to-find classic films, TV movies and TV series, Warner Archive Instant is now streaming 50 animated episodes of The New Adventures of Batman & The New Adventures of Superman, with the animated Aquaman series making its debut this June on the popular streaming service.

Warner Archive Instant (WAI) is now even easier to incorporate into your digital life through Airplay on AppleTV.

Moreover, fans are invited to sample the WAI streaming service for two weeks – absolutely free. Fans can sign-up at instant.warnerarchive.com and start checking out the wide variety of offerings from Warner Archive Instant.

Produced by Filmation, The New Adventures of Superman (1966) and The New Adventures of Batman (1977) presented some of the earliest animated tales of these iconic DC super heroes. 

The New Adventures of Superman includes episodes 19-34 of the series – boasting segments featuring Superboy and Krypto. These episodes are not included on the recent DVD release of the series, meaning Warner Archive Instant is the only place fans can see The New Adventures of Superman as it was originally broadcast.

The New Adventures of Batman offered the key actors from the 1966 Batman live-action series – Adam West and Burt Ward – a chance to reprise their characters’ voices for the animated series. These episodes of The New Adventures of Batman also include the first-ever animated appearances by Bat-Mite, voiced by series executive producer Lou Scheimer.

This coming June, Filmation’s 1967 animated series Aquaman will make its Warner Archive Instant debut. Avid fans thirsting for their oft-neglected aquatic hero will have the opportunity to stream 18 of the series’ 36 episodes. An exact date in June will be announced soon.
