Age-By-Age Guide
Action Adventure | Animation
Batman's nemesis stars in 13 animated episodes that have him and his sassy sidekick, Harley Quinn, wreaking havoc on Gotham City.

When it comes to villains, the Joker has always been an audience favorite! Fans will get a kick out of watching him try to thwart Batman and Superman simultaneously, and will find it fascinating to see the Joker as a young member of a gang called the Jokers. Whether he's taking over Christmas, releasing his fellow criminals from Arkham Asylum or referring to the Caped Crusader as "the Dork Knight," there's no question that this Joker is wild!

Baby (0-2)
No This DVD is intended for older children.
Preschool (3-5)
No This DVD is intended for older children.
Kids (6-9)
Maybe Younger children may be confused by the different versions of the Joker in the various episodes, and may find his eerie laugh and gruesome grin too scary. Older kids will find it amusing, in "Christmas with the Joker," that Robin just wants to spend the holiday watching "It's a Wonderful Life," which Batman admits he's never seen because "I could never get past the title."
Tweens (10-12)
Yes Tweens are especially enamored with the Joker, who always picks a fight with the superheroes, only to realize the joke's on him. They'll think it's funny when Harley teams up with Poison Ivy, boasting that "no man can take us prisoner," and then being caught by a policewoman! They'll also understand the irony of the fact that Lois Lane likes Bruce Wayne and Superman--but not Batman or Clark Kent! Both Batman and the Joker will make viewers agree with Robin that one man can make a big difference to a city.
