This week on the BATTASS Podcast, Mad Hatter goes a really long way for a racist ham sandwich, and Killer Croc comes oh so close to turning over a new leaf with The Worry Men and Sideshow!
First up, in The Worry Men, Veronica Vreeland has bought dolls for her friends which, once placed under a pillow, are supposed to relieve the sleeper of stress, but the Mad Hatter has implanted a microchip in them which transmits hypnotic suggestions into the sleepers’ brains. Batman fights Mad Hatter’s really culturally insensitive goons, manages to escape a guillotine just in the nick of time, and almost loses a fortune in the process!
Next, in Sideshow, Killer Croc flees from his prison transport and leads Batman on a chase through the wilderness. After throwing Batman off his scent, the reptile-man takes refuge with a group of retired circus freaks and persuades them to help him. We get a train-top fistfight, the cutest half seal, half boy you’ll ever see, and some beautiful forest landscapes along the way too! Does Batman ruin Croc’s one chance at turning over a new leaf? Or is Croc just a jerk through and through?
Join Clay and Sean as they discuss the finer bits of guillotine escape strategy, drawing Batman in the rural day time, freakshows, when a face turn is really a face turn, and the continuing question over how smart or dumb Killer Croc really is!
Batman the Animated series takes us to the great outdoors this week, giving us probably the most heartwarming story you could tell with a giant crocodile man at the center of it, as well as a story featuring the Mad Hatter where his goons’ gimmick is so racially insensitive they feel right out of a 1940’s cartoon, so take out all the money in your bank account, get your ticket for the freakshow and join us for this new episode of the Battass Podcast as they discuss The Worry Men and Sideshow!
