Did You Know?


Jules Dennis, Richard Mueller, and Sean Catherine Derek wrote the original script based on the story by Sean Catherine Derek and Gary Greenfield. But there were several changes made to the script. Bruce Timm added the dream sequence and changed the villain to a fat and revolting character. There was also a sequence at the beginning of the original script where Batman is wandering around the city, trying to find out why people were disappearing. It was staged with homeless people hanging around on sidewalks: families, mothers and kids. BS&P made storyboard artists take all that out of the boards. BS&P said it was too much for kids to see that maybe a woman or a family can be out on the streets. So they specifically asked to show only men as homeless. See more »


Boss Biggis: Why aren't these lowlifes working?
Guard #1: They have to at, sir.
Boss Biggis: [noisily chewing on a chicken drumstick] I have to eat. They have to work! From now on, they'll bring me twice the gold ore. Do you hear me?
Guard #1: Yes, sir. We recruited some new men.
Boss Biggis: You bums better start busting butt or you'll all end up like...
[points to a random worker]
Boss Biggis: ... him.

Boss Biggis: Now, get to work, or you'll all roast.

Alfred The Butler Saves The Day!
2 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a different kind of Batman story: kind of "Cool Hand Luke" episode where our hero winds up in a chain-gang-like predicament.

It all started when Bruce Wayne finds out from a friend who runs the big mission in Metropolis that people he knows in in the city are missing. They are all kinds of people, not just down-on-their-luck transients who need the city mission. The latest was a volunteer named "Dan Riley."

Bruce (a.k.a. Batman) decides to go undercover, posing as a homeless man to see why and how these people are disappearing. He finds out quickly and gets bonked on the head from behind. The next thing he knows he's chained to a bed with a bunch of other prisoners, and he's lost his memory!

The villain was the guy who ran the slave-camp, of course. and was a big slob who ate all the time. At least they didn't stereotype him with a Southern accent.

The best thing about the story might be who winds up being the hero: Alfred!!

Overall, this was a good story and another beautifully drawn.
