Fantastically Entertaining With Super Visuals

Wow, now I am starting to see why people rave about this animated
Batman series. This is my second episode look and I was extremely
impressed in only the first few minutes. (This is the second story on
the DVD but it's listed as the 38th episode on the IMDb, so, I don't
what the story is except to presume the DVD has all the shows in a
Whatever. The artwork is magnificent with great drawings utilizing
light and shadows. The action scenes feature bold colors. This is
simply great visuals, but most people are more interested how the
stories are, and with The Joker blasting out of Arkham Asylum on top of
a rocket-propelled huge Christmas tree, I guess that kind of tells you
this episode had a fun story to tell.
The Joker's singing lyrics and dialog were not only humorous but so
were some of the things he did - so many sight gags in here that there
are too many to mention. I was just pleasantly surprised, after
watching the first episode, to see so much humor in this one. Joker
hosting his own fake TV program - with canned laughter - was hilarious!
Well....he is called "The Joker," after all. I wish all the villains
were as entertaining as this guy. Who can get mad a guy - even at
Christmas - who sing "Jingle bells, Batman smells.....?"
This was my first look at "Robin," as he wasn't in the first episode
("On Leather Wings") on this First Season DVD package. He seems a lot
more cheery and human-like than our morose hero, so he complements
Batman's character nicely. It also confirms that the DVD has these
episodes out of order, because I haven't seen Robin since this one.
This episode is so crammed full of great material I hope it doesn't
spoil me for subsequent episodes. I mean, I can't see how they can be
more entertaining than this one.
