OK, so I know this affects exactly zero people - especially considering that none of this nomenclature is used anywhere on earth other than in these very blog posts - but, nevertheless, the more I thought about about it, the more I realized that I probably should change the way I’ve been labeling the production numbers of these episodes.

Nothing too big of a change - I’m still going separate out each discrete production run into its own separate sequence - I just think that since there is enough documentation out on the web to figure out at what point the four feature films actually went into production, they should probably have their own separate sequence numbers.

So, basically, since we know that Batman: Mask of the Phantasm was ordered after the first 65 episodes of Batman: The Animated Series, that film should be considered as production run 2, making the second round of 20 BTAS episodes production run 3, the first 13 eps of Superman: The Animated Series run 4, Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero (which was originally in work for release in summer of 1997) run 5, the next batch of STAS run 6, and the whole of The New Batman Adventures run 7.

Like I say... completely meaningless anywhere but here but, as a wiser man than I wrote, "a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds".

Anyway, that would make the current state of our running list look more like this:
