Mr. Freeze is living in the arctic with his cryogenically-frozen wife. When a submarine destroys her containment capsule, he has to find someone to "donate" a new heart for her.

Was originally set for a release in the summer of 1997, but held back because of the negative reception following the release of Batman & Robin, which also featured Mr. Freeze as an antagonist. Nevertheless, upon release, the film received strongly positive reviews, compared to Batman & Robin. See more »
When Bruce uses the computer in the hospital to search the blood donors, when he opens the organ donor form, the form on the screen already has some of Barbara's details filled in; obviously a glitch, as in the next shot the whole form is empty, and Bruce then goes to type her name in the form and searches for the information.

I have nothing but respect for the 1990's Batman cartoon series. It's dark, action packed, the animation is superb and the storylines very interesting indeed.
My favourite Batman villain would probably be the Joker but in the cartoon series I think Mr Freeze is probably the best.
There have been Batman cartoon series before this in the 60's and 70's. Mr Freeze did make appearances in both series but he was portrayed as an evil villain. In actual fact, Mr Freeze is not an evil villain. He has a good heart deep down and this movie portrays that wonderfully. Rather than making him into some sinister villain who wishes to freeze everything in sight the producers portrayed him as a tragic man who became a villain through little fault of his own. This is what makes this a good cartoon-it's very thought provoking.
Besides all that, it's an action packed movie with great action scenes in it. Check it out.
