->When we last left our heroes, Catwoman had lured them into the warehouse of the Gato & Chat Fur Company, where they were faced with not one deathtrap, but an entire series of them, each deadlier than the last. It all culminated in Batman being confronted with two doors and given a literal choice between the lady and the tiger, and choosing wrong. All of which is to say that this is an episode of television that opens with Batman fighting a tiger, which is without question the best possible way for anything to open, ever.\\\
And while itís obvious, itís worth noting that that itís a ''real tiger''. I mean, yes, itís obviously a trained and likely declawed animal being supervised by someone standing just off-camera, Iím sure, but thatís still Adam West Ė or a stuntman who sure looks a heck of a lot like him when you freeze-frame Ė in a fistfight with ''an actual tiger''. That is completely bananas, and completely awesome.

"We also want to have people fighting the zombies up close and personal, but there's a limit to what we can do if those people are bound by the laws of physics and logic." "Well, if we introduce a race of super-powered zombie-human hybrids then we can pretty much animate whatever our imaginations can conjure."
