    With a super fighter in the hands of one of gothams street gangs batman finds himself outclassed by the superior technology of the combat vehicle.



    Eventually he teams up with a scientist dr price who is also looking for the machine.

    Execept for slighty differnt reasons.

    It seems the craft has a fatal design flaw in its reactor core.Continued use of the thing could cuase a catastrophic breach and vapourise half the city.

    She give batso the means to take the craft out of comission,if he can just survive long enough to use it.



    I found this episode quite amusing despite the high stakes of the plot.

    the freaky joker pilot was hilarious in places and seemed to get all the best lines.



    Not the deepest ep

    but a fine additionmoreless

    one of the better episodes that didnt necessarily have to focus on the hero(Batman) and it was hilarious to boot. the Jokerz were seen as real people for once instead of the "clowns" they're so often protrayed as in this series. Wendie Malick did an excellent job voicing Dr. Price and the rest of the cast's voices came along quite nicely. the real treat to this episode was the dialogue was believable. i often try to put myself into situations dealt with in certain episodes and compare how they handled it. i was pleased with the result. one of my personal favesmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • In the scene where Terry is chasing the Jokerz in the vehicle and he talks to Bruce in the background of the Batcave in the suit chambers you can see the Batman Beyond suit even though Terry is clearly wearing it.

    • While piloting the aircraft in the opening scene, the pilot tells Dr. Price that he wished he would have had the aircraft during the last war. Since the setting for Batman Beyond is five decades into the future, and the pilot wouldn't be more than sixty years old, there must have been a war post-2010.

    • After the two pilots are run over by the Jokerz's motorcycles, they are lying on the ground almost parallel to each other. When Dr. Price's team arrives on the scene, the two pilots are lying perpendicular to each other.

    • The number of petals on the flower on the lead Joker's jacket changes from six petals to seven between scenes.

    • Trivia: Two dozen burgers, fries, a couple gallons of shakes, and a Big Beefer costs 60 units at the Beefee Burger restaurant.

    • Dr. Price is seen in a yellow suit when she is at the location of the theft. However, she is in a blue suit when she meets Batman.

    • A "T" is seen painted on the iron beam that stands parallel to the left of the billiards table in the Gotham subway station. In the remainder of the scene, the "T" is missing from the beam.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Dr. Price: Are you all right?
      Batman: Nothing a few transplants won't cure.

    • Coe: Scab, this is a UFO, isn't it?
      Scab: Wake up, Coe. All the writing is in English.
      Coe: You can read?

    • Dr. Price: Listen to me. That vehicle is government property. You have to return it, now!
      Scab: Typical babe. I ain't even met you and you're already giving me orders.

    • Pilot 1: The first thing they're going to do when they get back to Gotham is tell all their buds that Martians are coming.
      Pilot 2: Second thing. First they've got to get their pants cleaned.

    • Dr. Price: I'm addressing whoever stole the experimental vehicle.
      Scab: That'd be me.
      Dr. Price: Who are you?
      Scab: Who are you? You sound hot, are you hot?

    • Jokerz Leader: Nice ride, Scab! Where'd you get it?
      Scab: My grades were good, so my folks bought me a car.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Many fans speculated that the skeleton in the ditch was in fact the Joker himself. The uncut version of Return of the Joker, however, makes it clear that the Joker's remains were buried beneath Arkham Asylum, not out in a ditch.

    • The T's (a rival gang) make their first appearance; they won't return until "Where's Terry".
