Batman: The Animated Series, "The Laughing Fish"

I'm back--again! Another mini-vacation over and back to Batman. Today I offer an episode from the excellent Batman: The Animated Series. Debuting on the Fox network in the fall of 1992, this series took an adult, sophisticated approach to the Dark Knight, inspired both by the first two Tim Burton movies (including the Danny Elfman-composed music score) and the 1930s Superman cartoon shorts. This series was arguably the adaptation of Batman that was closest to the tone of the comic book.

This episode, "The Laughing Fish," is based on a famous issue of the comic. The Joker puts his smiling mug on local Gotham fish and demands a copyright on the new breed.

Love these cartoons. Joker is my favorite bad guy from the animated series.
