The first episode there is the debut of Scarecrow which means i knew he would be on this show as he's one of my fave DC villains ever, this episode dealt with what Batman really knows what he fears as it happens to be his guilt yet he managed to conquer his fear at the end then utter his famous line. Scarecrow looked completely different in the second episode of him as i bet his old mask was destroyed yet decided to get a new one isn't that right?
And who think Jonathan Crane looked like ichabod from the Disney Sleepy Hollow toon and a bit like that one worker from the movie Akira in some way? afterall the show is not only comic/Burton film inspired by also anime influenced.
But who liked it that Jeffrey Combs of Re-Animator fame gets to be the character's voice for the later seasons?
Who likes this episode? my 32d fave episode on my top 35 fave episodes and it's a fun one that is like a jazzed up cocktail of Island of Dr. Moreau, the Tiny Toons episode "Hare Raising Night", the 1984 Osamu Tezuka animated film "Bagi The Monster of Mighty Nature", Splice and Freaked (Remember that sci-fi horror comedy with Randy Quaid as the mad scientist and Alex Winter with the mutant freaks?). Who thinks Dr. Emile Dorian looks like David Cronenberg without glasses? and any guys here thought Selina Kyle in mutant cat chick form was hot?
I did missed out on this episode the first time it aired and i remembered when it reaired on my 12th birthday i watched it with my bigger brother, i remembered when Selina crept out of the shadows of the exhibit i was saying "What the hell" then after commercial break she did that seductive pose in the exhibit and i was saying "HOLY HELL SHE'S HOT and naked too" as i whistled at her as my jaw was dropped during the entire episode and i fantasized about her, my brother told me "Your nuts", lol that brings back memories. I just adore Catwoman/Selina Kyle for 23 years no matter what she looks like in cartoons, movies, games, comics and TV shows. Mutated Selina is almost in the same league as other sexy cartoon feline gals back then like Cleo from Heathcliff, Kit Mambo from Animalympics, the She-Panther from the one Pink Panther special Pink at First Sight, Cheetara and Pumraya from Thundercats, Kitten Kaboodle from Talespin, Callie Briggs from Swat Kats, Aishia Clan Clan from Outlaw Star, Felicia from Darkstalkers, Jenny from Bucky O'Hare, Bagi from Bagi The Monster of Mighty Nature, the Puma Twins,Mirage from Aladdin, M'ress from the Star Trek cartoon from Tank Police and especially Katrina from He-Man you have to admit.
Great episode, it reintroduces the character to animation and i knew him from the classic 60's show when i was a kid but i think he's one of the most underrated Batman villains ever. TMS does a great job as usual in TV animation for some of their works on TV and animated movies.
