- Creator Backlash: While the episode was based on a good story from the comics and had decent animation, the episode was considered a misfire, namely for its lackluster gimmick villain, and Batman having no real motive to play mind games with him.Director Frank Paur: I tried to kill this show, but they didn't let me. We had a lot of storyboard artists who wanted to rebel on this one. The best metaphor is kicking a dead horse. It arrived dead and no matter how hard you kick it, it ain't going to give you a ride.
