Trivia

The episode's title derives from the proverb "Birds of a feather flock together". Its avian theme homages the Penguin, but it also deals with two different people being drawn together by a common similarity - in this case, Veronica and Oswald due to their "socialite" attitude. See more »

All The Penguin Wanted Was A Friend
7 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When you see the title to this particular story, you might guess "The Penguin" is involved. If so, your guess is correct.

Actually, it's not that much of a story. The Penguin is out of jail and kind of lonely. Nobody is there to great him at the prison, nor at his former home. However, the phone rings (how would that still be in service?) and the famous crook has been invited out for dinner with hottie "Veronica Vreeland," a red-heated, full-figured Veronica Lake. She and fellow party host/snob "Pierce" also have invited Mr. Cobblepot to their swanky party, hoping he'll help them make the society news.

The Penguin doesn't let the highbrow snobs down, kidnapping Veronica. Hey, she flirted with him and he got turned on. Came blame the poor penguin. "All I wanted was a friend," he said. I think he wanted a bit more, too. Anyway, it rallied to be a fun episode with some clever dialog. Marilu Henner of "Taxi" fame is the voice of Veronica.

Once again, beautiful colors and wonderful artwork highlight the show. I can never say enough good things for the people who drew these episodes
