Did You Know?


Jervis Tetch, the Mad Hatter, refers to Alice once in the episode by saying, "Good evening, Miss Pleasance." This is a reference to Alice Pleasance Lidell, a likely inspiration for the character Alice in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which is the inspiration for the Mad Hatter and Alice Pleasance.

Dr. Marcia Cates: Bruce, you remember Jervis Tetch.
Dr. Jervis Tetch: [shaking Bruce's hand] H-hello.
Bruce Wayne: Of course. I read your proposal on using microchips to enhance the brain's potential. Sounds intriguing.
Dr. Jervis Tetch: Actually, the prototype isn't quite ready yet.
Dr. Marcia Cates: Tetch, I think we owe our founder and employer, Mr. Wayne a little more than lame excuses.
Dr. Jervis Tetch: Sorry.

Jervis A Little Too Nervous Over Alice
6 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The "Mad Hatter" is really nerd-like scientist "Jervis Tetsch," who has the hots for his secretary "Alice" but she's in love with someone else. The story winds up revolving around his obsession with her. He uses his mind-control experiments that he's been working on, and instantly transforms people into zombies, doing his bidding as soon has he puts one of his special cards on their hat or in their hair.

Finally, he confronts Batman in a physical battle inside "Wonderland," which looked like something Michael Jackson would create.

As you imagine with these them, this is an episode filled with a lot of colors befitting a place like "Wonderland." Roddy McDowell voices the role of "The Hatter."
