But what do you do with something like Batman Forever
, where the onscreen title is just the word "Forever" over a Batman logo? For that matter, not one of Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series
, and the earlier 1988 animated Superman
showed a written title onscreen at all (though the '88 series used the classic opening narration with the name spoken several times). So maybe onscreen titles shouldn't be the definitive ones.
And what about films or shows that go by different titles in different releases? Like those MST3K films that got retitled upon video release, such as Marooned
being retitled Space Travelers
. Or TV shows that got renamed in syndicated reruns, like Happy Days
becoming Happy Days Again
(something they often did in the '70s to avoid confusion between new episodes and reruns)?
