  • One of the more bizarre "Batman" episodes you will ever see...why this wasn't the first episode aired in the series, I'll never should have been, with Batgirl appearing in all the "Batman" episodes.

    The Joker is even more erratic than usual, breaking a mad scientist out of prison and launching a flying saucer as part of his plot to take over the world, something that The Brain in "Pinky & The Brain" could only dream about doing...this should have introduced viewers to the "Batman" TV series the way the short introductory Killer Moth film introduced limited numbers of viewers to the Batgirl character. Even more so, Killer Moth should have been a supporting character in this episode, leading to his own role in a future storyline. Since it got relegated to the third-to-last episode aired, however, "Joker's Flying Saucer" falls just short of excellent.
