Has close ties to Burton's "Batman Returns"
7 October 2009 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

The "look" of Oswald Cobblepot bears a striking resemblance to Tim Burton's 1992 film "Batman Returns". From the Penguin's bell-like body frame to the flipper hands to the beaked nose, the animators have done a good job to replicate Danny DeVito's image in the movie.

That's wear the similarity ends for Paul Williams' voice-over performance is uniquely his. His Penguin is a faux sophisticate that desires acceptance from high society only to find himself to be the pawn of a cruel joke instigated by two yuppies, one voiced by "Taxi's" Marilu Henner. Just as Kevin Conroy is the definitive Batman; thus, Williams is the definitive Penguin.

The story makes the normal villain sympathetic as The Penguin gets to utter a line about just wanting to have a friend.

This is more a morality play than the average 'toon and receives high marks for the storytelling and high production values.

Lolita Ritmanis delivers a wonderful score, incorporating different versions of "The Penguin Theme" throughout. It is no wonder that the composer is a frequent Emmy nominee.
