Batman: The Animated Series - Almost Got 'Im review

For Throwback Thursday we look back at one of my favorite episodes of Batman: The Animated Series. Set in a dive bar frequented by Bat-villains, the episode takes place around a game of poker as the Joker (Mark Hamill), Poison Ivy (Diane Pershing), Two-Face (Richard Moll), the Penguin (Paul Williams), and Killer Croc (Aron Kincaid) all tell their tales about the closest they came to knocking off Batman (Kevin Conroy). Each story is shown in flashbacks (with the exception of Croc’s short tale which earns him nothing but blank stares from the other villains), and each is tailored to fit the villain (exploding pumpkins, an aviary of doom, the giant penny, and the laughter-powered electric chair). The two best moments comes not from any of these villains, however, but in the reveal that one isn’t who he appears to be and later from Catwoman (Adrienne Barbeau) who closes out the episode with her own version of an “Almost Got ‘Im” tale. One of the show’s best.
