Trivia

In Jazz animated word press website, the quotes of Composer Harvey Cohen were published about how he composed the episode "A Bullet for Bullock." Here is the quote. Harvey Cohen - ""Shirley Walker, as you know, was the music supervisor/primary composer for 'B:TAS' and kind of set the musical tone for the show: lush, dark, similar to the Elfman scores for the first two films ('89 & '92). With the 'Bullet' score, I was told to write a jazz score but not specifically of any time period. The hard-boiled detective 'film-noir' style felt right. Also, as luck would have it, I got the assignment 2-3 days after Henry Mancini's death in July '94. He and his music were big influences on me, and the score is kind of a tribute to him." See more »

The perfect showcase for Robert Costanzo
23 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'A Bullet for Bullock' is another one I don't remember much from the show's broadcast days (hey, syndication played some more than others), but it turned out to be one of the best. Batman agrees to help Harvey Bullock after the portly detective receives death threats, and it's a fantastic spotlight on one of the other members of law enforcement; someone who proves oddly lovable for being so crotchety ("The detective who looks like an unmade bed?"). Even Montoya just shakes her head at his disastrous home life.

This episode strikes just thee right comic tone from the outset, with dime novel dialogue and a jazzy score. There's an entertaining oil-and- water chemistry between Bullock and Batman, and it's just a great time. I got a real kick outta this.

10/10
