Along with the live-action movie and RETURN OF THE CAPED CRUSADERS, this makes for a nice nice little trilogy, not to mention a fitting tribute to Adam West. BATMAN VS TWO-FACE has all the sorts of gags you’ve come to expect from West’s tenure as the Caped Crusader. You see an “Abandoned Sign Factory” sign over the sight of a fight scene and Two-Face (William Shatner) recovers from surgery at the Sisters of Perpetual Irony Hospital. At one point Batman asks Robin (Burt Ward), “This isn’t an appropriate way to blow off steam – you should have joined a male basketball league!”. Shatner of course gets his courtroom scene, but doesn’t quite go full-on Denny Crane (shame). It even references that slapping meme along the way. They do miss out on a potentially more interesting twist than the one they actually go for, but the animation and vocal performances are superb throughout. SSP
