Scarecrow: I might have underestimated the Batman, but at least the university is finished.
Anthony: You know, boss, I always hated school, but, how come you hate the university so much?
Scarecrow: They tried to destroy me.

'The Scarecrow' Makes People Face Their Worst Fears
30 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's another cool villain, "The Scarecrow," who is an ex-professor of psychology. (No wonder he's nuts.) Anyway, things didn't go well for him at the local university, so he's paying them back with terrorist attacks. His gimmick is a smoke-bomb in which people who inhale it suddenly face their worst fears. So, if it's rats or spiders or parental rejection - whatever your greatest fear - it will consume you, while 'The Scarecrow" does whatever he wants to do.

With Batman, his fear is more psychological: fear of his father's rejection.

This was another entertaining show with nice Deco art and a cool-looking villain. Alfred the butler also had some humorous remarks. It kind of freaks me out knowing Efrem Zimbalist Jr. is voicing that character, as I still associate that actor from his glory days as a television star way back in the 1950s and 1960s.
