The DC Animated Universe Weekly Review - Batman: The Animated Series

Batman: The Animated Series

Episode 4

The Last Laugh

Another Joker episode only two episodes after we last saw him.  It’s such a good episode, it doesn’t matter though.  It works because it helps solidify him as Batman’s main villain. 


The Joker is spreading a toxic gas all over Gotham making people go into laughing fits.  As that occurs Joker and his gang rob the locations where the gas spreads.  Batman uses his detective skills to track the Joker and stop him.  It’s filled with nice action and great Joker jokes.  


It’s hard to find anything to truly criticize in these early episodes.  The show was made so well, there could be some slight character inconsistencies as the years of story telling progress, but very inconsequential.
