On two 1972 episodes of the TV cartoon THE NEW SCOOBY DOO MOVIES, produced by Hanna-Barbera, Batman and Robin teamed with Scooby and the gang to battle The Joker and The Penguin.

The episodes were entitled: The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair and The Caped Crusader Caper. Thanks to Joel Baxter.
Briefly The Joker enjoyed his own comic book in 1975.
In a 1975 Giant coloring book by Whitman the Joker battled Batman and Robin in a story entitled COMEDY OF TEARS. He looked like this.

Beginning in 1992 on BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES, The Joker was voiced superbly by Mark Hamill.During the first season he appeared in many fantastic episodes, such as JOKER'S FAVOR (9/11/92), THE STRANGE SECRET OF BRUCE WAYNE (10/29/92) and CHRISTMAS WITH THE JOKER (11/13/92).
In 1994, during the KINGHTQUEST THE CRUSADE saga, The Joker decided to make a movie and grow a pony tail. He was quickly taken down by the Jean Paul Valley Batman.
Different looks, but still the same great Mark Hamill cackle troughout.
In the 2000 DVD and video release RETURN OF THE JOKER, he returns about 70 years in the future to battle the new BATMAN BEYOND Batman. Still Mark Hamill. How does he do this? I'm not going to give it away.
On the 2002 WB series BIRDS OF PREY, the back story is told that The Joker murdered Catwoman and crippled Barbara Gordon. He's seen only in fuzzy flashbacks and is voiced, all too briefly, by Mark Hamill.
In the outstanding and just plain fantastic 2004 Fan Film GRAYSON, the Joker was played to perfection by Brian C. Bethel.
The best Joker portrayal to date, in my opinion, is within the confines of Director, Writer, Producer and Star John Fiorella's film GRAYSON. Director and creator Fiorella has done the impossible... made the perfect screen incarnation of our DC heroes. Joker is played by Brian C. Bethel.
In 2008's THE DARK KNIGHT, The Joker was played by the late Heath Ledger, in his last performance.
