is an episode of Batman: The Animated Series starring
Kevin Conroy, Loren Lester, and Robert Costanzo.
A washed-up actress with a bizarre condition that makes her look permanently like a child seeks revenge against her canceled show's cast and crew.
Animation has changed so much in the last few years, it is hard to even define the borders that distinguish it from live action today. Yes, there was a "dead zone" from the 60s to the 90s, when quality actually declined because no one wanted to spend the bucks for hand-drawn cells, and computers had not yet come along to fill the gap. And now we are back in a Golden Age of sorts, where, astonishingly, some of the product coming out of the US is as good as the stuff from Japan. Or better. Against this backdrop we have the Baby Doll episode from the Emmy winning multi-year series. While just a tad more satirical then the usual episodes (which are almost all GREAT) an astonishing script and an UNFORGETTABLE ending take this single episode to the status of legend.
