Storyline

While in Arkham Asylum, The Joker sees a television report on the opening of a splashy new casino by businessman Cameron Kaiser. The casino is based entirely on Joker's persona, which angers the Clown Prince Of Crime, and also irritates visiting billionaire Bruce Wayne. Joker escapes Arkham and makes a bee-line to The Joker's Wild casino to blow it up, while Bruce Wayne dons his cape and cowl and discovers Cameron Kaiser's real motive for building it. When Joker arrives he gets duped out in a card game by Bruce Wayne, then dodges Batman via his old Jokermobile before getting to work in earnest to blow up the casino. Batman meanwhile confronts Kaiser, but is knocked out via electric shock and dumped into the Joker's lap. Now tied to a gigantic roulette wheel, Batman recovers enough to warn Joker that Kaiser intends for him to destroy the casino for a massive insurance payment, causing Joker to go after Kaiser while leaving behind enough explosive to finish off Batman.

Trivia

The Joker steals a prop Jokermobile, and as he drives away, he removes a sign from the windshield which reads "Wan the cirin gnal Jokernocile." This was probably meant to read "Win the original Jokermobile" but got lost in translation with the Asian animators. See more »

All Bets Are Off In This Casino Caper
18 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yet again, we get a great episode featuring The Joker. This guy is always entertaining and the writers of this show seem to excel when this laughing crook is the star. They give him all kinds of puns and make the show action-packed start-to-finish.

In this one, a crooked businessman named Kaiser builds a very costly casino downtown and names it "Joker's Wild" with pictures of The Joker everywhere in and outside the building. It turns out he knew by doing this that the real criminal will break out of jail, blow up the place and then he can collect big-time on the insurance.

All three of these guys go at it inside and outside the casino in some wild and colorful scenes. We also get opening and closing jail segments which are fun as The Joker and Poison Ivy go at each other verbally.
