The sub-par animation qualities of this episode led to the Korean animation studio AKOM being fired, and couldn't continue their work on the cartoon series. See more »
When Batman bursts up from the frozen lake, with the two captured villains in tow, the villains disappear for a moment, and then reappear into view. The animation doesn't show them sinking and surfacing, they simply vanish from one frame to the next. See more »

Batman The Animated Series
Written by Danny Elfman & Shirley Walker See more »
This is one of the few episodes that has very little action and suspense.....but still holds your interest.
It's the second one in this DVD series to feature Selina Kyle, alias "Catwomen." I guess I don't know my Batman history because I always thought she was one of the many wild villains Batman always faces. Yet, so far in these two animated TV shows - particularly this episode - she is anything but another foe of Batman. They work together and, in fact, he (Bruce Wayne) has a crush on her, but she only has eyes for Batman, not Bruce.
Anyway, the episode is basically a save-the-animals story in which a familiar villain, "Roland Daggart," is using the city's stray dogs and cats to carry a toxin with the intent of terrorizing Gotham city. Selina, trying to find her missing cat, runs into Daggart's dastardly disciples and - with Batman's help - tries to stop them.
In all, not as intense an episode as normal. It's not boring, but it's a little too tame. It's as if this Catwoman has been de-clawed.
