Batman has had a long, storied history in TV and film. Not all of it has been great, but we've seen a full spectrum of the Dark Knight's range, from incredibly cheesy and colorful to depressingly grim and dark.

This video from Vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney takes us through that entire history, from the 1943 Batman serial to Batman's appearance in 2014's The Lego Movie, with all the Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan stuff in between. It's a fun ride (not to be confused with our local Six Flags' Batman: The Ride) through a comic book hero's cinematic evolution.
