    I love this movie. Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman jump started puberty for me.

    It was the year that the best animated show hit the waves as well and that show had some Burton elements in it besides the comics

    I remember seeing this in the theater and being wildly disappointed.

    I still find it a visually stunning movie that's a complete mess plot-wise. I find the Catwoman moments very watchable (for more reasons than one), but absolutely hate everything about the Penguin.

    I liked BATMAN RETURNS, but I loved BATMAN The Animated Series! That's actually what got me back into collecting toys.

    I liked the late Vincent Schiavelli as the machine gun organ grinder

    Saw this in theaters when i was 11 3 times and enjoyed it! i had some of the toys, ate the cereal, had cards, comic adaptation, t-shirt and all that stuff and i watched/taped the animated show on Fox and WB as a kid and a teen.

    Who else thought Michelle was hot in this movie? i dug her since i was 4 when i saw Ladyhawke on video and she was foxy in this movie. Best Catwoman besides Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, Adrienne Barbeau and Anne Hathaway.

    Yet who else noticed on the first 3 seasons of Batman TAS that Penguin and Selina Kyle look like their movie counterparts and some elements of the show had movie tie ins even Jack Napier?

    I've always had pretty mixed feelings about this movie. Something about the vibe just seemed off to me.

    So you think it's inferior to the original?

    And who agrees on the Batman TAS borrowing from Burton stuff even blonde Selina to Penguin?

    Oh, totally. They gave PENGUIN 'movie flipper-hands' instead of normal hands. The BATMOBILE was very movie inspired. That's definitely where all the heavy dark colors came from, not to mention the gruff BATMAN voice.

    Jack Napier name too, the Mechanic episode was inspired by Returns.

    Don't forget Selina's costume in Season 4 being like the movie's.

    Except for the color, I thought her costume in Seasons 1-3 was closer looking in design to the movie than season 4, particularly her mask.

    and in Batman Adventures, Selina stopped dying her hair when she discovers it's made from animals and went back to black hair.
