One of the strongest Penguin episodes
26 September 2011 | by (Devon) – See all my reviews

Blind as a Bat is one of my favourite episodes. And as i've gotten older, i now appreciate it even more.

The gist of the story is Penguin stealing a a high-tech Army helicopter and holding Gotham City to ransom. Meanwhile, as a result of the high-jacking, Bruce Wayne is blinded. Can a blinded Batman stop The Penguin? I think it's a fantastic story, and shows that Batman is only human too. This episode marks the last story where Penguin is the main villain, which is a shame as I think he was one of the more colourful, and diabolical villains, who is perfectly voiced by Paul Williams.

I love a good Penguin episode, and if you do too, then definitely check this one out.
