    A mediocre episode, but you gotta admit the lighting here is super cool.

    I loved that one. Especially the music in it.

    Besides the climax this was a pretty average episode. I still enjoy it. I agree with ThePhantasm about the lighting in that fight between Batman and that goon at the end. It was "super cool" and added some grit and edginess to the confrontation. It's been a while since I've seen this ep., but I think Heather Locklear was the voice of that blonde woman that Batman saves at the end.

    I enjoy The Forgotten. It also had a great score by Walker with that harmonica, which adds a southern blue-sy vibe to this adventure. Everytime I think about this ep. the first thing that comes to mind is Walker's score and that slobby glutton.

    I remember this chilling image (before it fades into Bruce) was used for the Fox promos back in the Summer of 92. Then it showing or saying"coming this fall". Man was that exciting to see as a kid.

    With episodes like The Forgotten... you could clearly see the influence of Sean Catherine Derek.

    She liked to approach the stories with a message and teach kids something. I guess this was her episode about homelessness.

    One of my favorite shows of all time. Hardly an episode in it that I flat out dislike.

    And am I the only one that doesn't make a big deal out of the redesigns? I mean, some of them are lame looking, but the writing for the show was just as good. In fact, some of the episodes from Vol. 4 are the best of the series.

    One thing looking back that I wish the series had was greater continuity..

    There is continuity with a few episodes and some of the self contained stories are great.. but after I really enjoyed the season long stories contained in Spectacular Spiderman and even Gargoyles back in the days.

    Yes there was some continuity amongst some episodes and Justice League Unlimited showed that Timm and company can tell overarching stories...I just wish the original animated series had more.

    Mad Hatter was one of those villains I didn't really care for in BTAS. I preferred him in Arkham City. Roddy McDowell (sp?) was pretty good as him, too, though I prefer Peter MacNichol.

    Nah I didn't really like him that much in Arkham City.

    B:TAS' Mad Hatter is the defnitive version for me... specifically this episode.

    This was a great episode. The Mad Hatter was always handled well in BTAS. His obsession over Alice was creepy.

    Are you talking about the song that plays while everyone is working for the food loving guy? If so then I second that.
