It was some kind of a retcon. A gangster called The Red Hood or a harmless comedian who had to wear the red hood because of some unfortunate circumstances is a difference. I prefer TKJ's origin, though. And I love Joker's line about his past as "multiple choice". A Joker WITHOUT a certain origin is so much more intimidating IMHO.
