With Bruce Timm voicing and portraying: The Evil Nerd.
He's what liquidkool440 would be if he was evil.

5 stars for reducing Batman to a slavering fanboy trying to emulate a TV character.

-1 star because the Mad Bomber didn't bomb at midnight. BOOM BABY BOOM.
The point this episode was trying to make was that actors like Adam West tend to find it hard to get work after their big success, even though their work is very influential. Just like the actor in the story who played The Gray Ghost, Al Hodge voiced The Green Hornet on radio and was a TV pioneer in the 1950s portraying Captain Video. In the late 1970s he was found dead in a seedy, rundown apartment filled with Captain Video collectibles just like The Gray Ghost actor. Also, like The Gray Ghost in the story, The Green Hornet was one of the real influences of the character Batman and they shares a lot of similarities.

"Remember, Batman, the bigger the collateral damage, the more awesome it is to be you."

"You mean like that whole city block we just blew up?"

"It is awesome to be us."

Oh shit, I remember loving this episode as a young adult.

I used to buy toys that were fun to play.

Now I use these toys to bomb away.

Oh I believe in Yestertoys.

I'd say Clayface's origin episode and the episode where the Mad Hatter puts Batman into a dream where he's not Batman are the two most pathos-filled episodes. The first half of this is up there, but it ends kinda smug. Still - 5.
No, the Mr Freeze origin topped them all.

Fuck, you're completely correct

The one where the robot thinks he's Batman is pretty dark. Bordered on Twilight Zone material, even.

this is a good cartoon you guys.
This show is still amazing.
"The studio that owned that show is in contention with the studio that owns the license over the release of a DVD collection, so it'll probably never get released. Sorry pal. (siiiipppp) "
