The Conclusion Of Robin's Revenge, And Great Art Deco, Too!
I was surprised that half of this episode involved more flashbacks. I assumed it would take off where last week's ended, with Robin going out on his own to catch his parents' killer, "Tony Zucco." However, the writers added more history of Robin and his run-ins with Zucco, and I'm glad they did. They were interesting and added to the story.
One of the highlights of this episode was the great Art Deco look of it. With those flashbacks, you really get some excellent 1930s and 1940s looks, especially with a diner and the way citizens, including Zucco and his gang, dressed, along with other things. It gave this a real classic-era feel - which it always has, but even more-so in this crime story.
The animated art was better than the story, which was just so-so. They spent a lot scenes showing close-ups of Zucco and Robin gritting their teeth!
