And, as much as I like the animated Batman series. That Joker was OK. Not the ultimate Joker. I believe they toned it down a bit for theyounger viewers.
The Joker I want to see is actually psychotic killer and not so much a 'funnyman'. In fact, I would be happy if he made no jokes at all. I've never seen the character as a comedian. I've always thought of the Joker as a wildcard in that you never know from moment to moment what he's going to do.
