Batman: The Animated Series: Season 1: Episode 43: His Silicon Soul

What’s the episode about? An evil robot entity called HARDAC (that I did not remember at all) returns as a clone of Batman. The clone is so well done that the robot Batman has a conscious and tries to do no harm even though he wants to kill and replace real Batman. There’s some good hot Batman-on-Batman action sequences in this episode. It’s pretty great.

When does this frame happen? About halfway through, the HARDAC programming forecfully inserts a chip in its own forehead, receives repairs and it gets its own backstory.

Why are you sharing it? Naked Bruce Waynebot. What more do you want?

Batman: The Animated Series: Season 1: Episode 45: What is Reality?

What’s the episode about? The Riddler returns! I love this Riddler. In his first outing, he put Batman and Robin in a physical version of his computer game, a maze with a minotaur. In this episode, he locks the Commish’s brain inside a video game, and Batman has to avoid virtual traps and rescue Gordon. Pretty good episode.

When does this frame happen? About three minutes in, fake guards steal Nygma’s physical records from the police station to help erase his old identity.

Why are you sharing it? Lyle ‘Crazy’ Nucamp, Sally ‘Goodtime’ Nubank, and Dave ‘Smelly’ Nugent. I mean, I’m glad that they didn’t make all of the text illegible, like the files behind Nygma, but those nicknames are just awful. I feel bad for them. Poor Sally. Poor Dave.

Batman: The Animated Series: Season 3: Episode 11: The Terrible Trio

What’s the episode about? Three rich bored guys are tired of hunting rare game from helicopters, so they start robbing people. They get caught after they rob from someone they know, steal a personal, easily identifiable object, and punch a man in a face leaving a perfect imprint of a rare ring. Amateur hour. One of the guys chloroforms his girlfriend when she finds out and immediately decides to put her unconscious body in a car and push it off a cliff. What a sweetheart. It’s alright.

When does this frame happen? Near the beginning, after Batman and Robin first encounter the Trio alone in an apartment building at night.

Why are you sharing it? Based on dialogue, it looks like their first robbery was the night Batman and Robin found them. They zip-line out the window straight onto a boat on a dock they’ve rigged to explode. They escape.  HOW DID THE NEWSPAPER HAVE PRISTINE IMAGES OF ALL THREE THE NEXT MORNING? Did they pose? Are these common masks? How did they know the bird was a vulture and not a hawk? How did they know it was a fox and not a wolf? Maybe the rich guys were so confident they sent their images to the newspaper. Absurd.

Batman: The Animated Series: Season 1: Episode 44: Off-Balance

What’s the episode about? It features an evil German man with a vertigo-inducing ray which Batman defeats by closing his eyes? It’s alright.

When does this frame happen? In the very last seconds of the episode.

Why are you sharing it? She’s a sultry spy with a sexy foreign accent… and a mustache like the janitor from Rocky and Bullwinkle.

Every Wednesday for the next few weeks, I will be sharing a screen capture from an episode of Batman: The Animated Series. I dearly love this show, and watched it as an impressionable child. Some of the frames are stunning, some have errors, and some are just odd. 

I don’t own these images and I’m not getting anything for this except happiness.  Please enjoy.

Batman: The Animated Series: Season 1: Episode 27: The Underdwellers

What’s the episode about? It’s about the Underdwellers (read: Morlocks), a society of orphan children who live under the harsh rule of a Fagan-type evil leader in the sewers of Gotham. The Sewer King lives underground (like the Rat King from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) owns trained alligators (like GI Joe’s Croc Master) and has an eyepatch (like Callisto, leader of the Morlocks). There is very inconsistent use of sunlight as both a painful punishment and later as a comfort for the children when they return to the surface. It is not a good episode.

When Does This Frame Happen? Towards the end of the episode, a child morlock swoops in and rescues another child morlock from the arms of The Sewer King (who looks like Captain Hook).

Why Are You Sharing It? Batman’s a pretty stoic guy, but because the kid just gave Batman the thumbs up, Batman mimics the gesture. It’s so unlike him. If it weren’t such a dark picture, it could be a meme.
