Animator, Creator, Producer, Writer- Paul Dini has worn a lot of hats. Today he dons yet another, a birthday hat. 62 years ago today, Paul was born in New York City, Fast forward a few years and he is producing some of the biggest shows in animation history for Warner Brothers and DC. Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman: Beyond, Duck Dodgers, and Tiny Toon Adventures all bear the Dini touch. Later he would go on to work with Marvel Animation on Hulk And The Agents Of S.M.A.S.H. and Ultimate Spider-Man.
Back at San Diego Comic Con 2018, while on assignment for Bleeding Cool, I had the chance to sit down with Paul at a roundtable for the Blu- Ray release of Batman:The Animated Series Complete collection. He talks about his love for the property and and why the show has continued to be a fan favorite for so long. Paul tells us how proud he is that Harley has joined “ the Big Three” and Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman now have a fourth.
Here is that video from 2018.
