'If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?' is an excellent title for the intro of the Riddler, another sap who turns to villainy under the thumb of corporate douchebaggery. Far less dramatic than say, Clayface or Mr. Freeze, John Glover's voice acting is what makes this character stand out; but this episode is memorable for the big Minotaur Maze. It's an extravagant trap coming from a bad guy who's all about the puzzles. The imaginative execution keeps things exciting, especially when things could easily become brainy and convoluted. Maybe it's just because I remember playing the Minotaur level on the Genesis game back in the '90s, but I do enjoy that sequence.
