  • Selina turns back to crime in this amazing episode.

    This was one of my personal favorite episodes. After multiple episodes of Catwoman being on Batman's side fighting crime we see how much she misses being a villainess. She uses amazing comparisons and metafores in describing this. "I'm walking on a leash." "Extinction. I can relate." "I guess it's just the cat in me." "Extinction is for whimps." It was also a great installment for Scarface. Showing his ability to make master plans and use double cross and "dummy" evidence to his advantage. Seeing how torchered Selibna was with giving up Catwoman, Scarface knew just how to use it to his advantage. After she fell for Scarface's trap, I feel that a powerful line from Catwoman was "He costed me my freedom!" There was so mcuh emotion behind those words and it sounded as if you felt Scarface was completely to blame for her being "caged" again. One thing about this episode that I wasn't too happy about was the animation on Scarface. They made him seem as if her were human. He's supposed to be a puppet and puppets don't turn away and look sypothetic when they're talking.moreless
  • a graet ep. to show that some people arn't able to be caged esp. Cat Woman. and that she's not afade to pull uot her claws.

    Catwalk is the stoy of Catwoman who is trining to be good but cat'n fit in the high class croud as she used to. which is a great way for you to see how out of place Bruce must feal yet he's better hiding it. any way Selna stoms out of a praty and run right in to skare face who gives her a ofer she just wont refuse and as there is no honer umong teavfes BatMan has to bail her out. the ep. ends when to save her own skin treatens to brun a priceless cat to distraked him to make her get away the last sean you see is her on a roof whit her naration "I am a cat " . A all in all good ep. that can rival meany of todays plot lines.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In this episode, unlike those previously featuring Scarface, the dummy's mouth moves like other characters' (becoming rounded when pronouncing words like "what"), as if he were flesh instead of wood.

    • When Catwoman faces Scarface in the sawmill, the Ventriloquist is seen using both his hands to make Scarface gesture with his arms, only this would leave him with no hand free to operate Scarface's mouth and eyes, which are moving nonetheless!
