Released theatrically between the first and second seasons of the ABC Batman TV show (and re-released onto home video, "ironically," during the summer of 1989...a few months before the Tim Burton film was on video), this movie is nothing more than a longer episode but with four times the usual number of villains.

I really wish the Joker wasn't a part of this, but sadly he is...and so help me god he even feels that for a few scenes, he should wear a mask over his eyes like the Riddler! Sorry, Joker, but the green hair and white face kinda give you away.

Guess who?
