Episode 04: The Last Laugh
Written by: Carl Swenson
Directed by: Kevin Altieri
Original Air Date: 09/22/92
After what was in my opinion a lackluster way to introduce an iconic character like the Joker in the episode “Christmas With The Joker", he actually makes his second appearance in "Batman: The Animated Series" rather quickly, in the fourth episode titled “The Last Laugh.” To me, this is a much stronger episode than “Christmas With The Joker.” It is an episode that has a lot of action,…

“From here, you can’t see the enemy.” This is what Bruce Wayne thinks to himself as he flies into Gotham City, upon his return after years abroad. And yet, this story is not alone about Bruce Wayne. No. This story is also about the other half of Batman. The law-abiding half. Batman always holds himself to the law and its rules, despite his blatant disregard for vigilantism. Of course, this is in reference to Lieutenant James Gordon. At…

I must have been six years old when Batman: The Animated Series first aired. It immediately had my attention. I’d already seen Tim Burton’s Batman and was eager for more. Burton’s film and the series were my only real exposure to comics and to Batman for a long time after this, and it still surprises me that the series was so good. In the years since it’s left the air, I feel a twinge of sadness. Nothing will ever be made like that again….

If you ask any Bat-fan about Batman The Animated Series, they will most likely have nothing but praise for it. Many claim it is the greatest Batman TV show ever, and is unsurpassed by anything that came before or after it. The show premiered in 1992, and it was certainly something new. The show was much darker and more mature than any previous superhero cartoon. The series showed was large amounts of violence, real firearms used, blood shown on screen and many…
