  1. That episode was probably the best one that featured Killer Croc as a bad guy. I do have vague memories of a really freaky sequel episode from that series where Killer Croc is dating a woman who looks exactly like a preschooler though.

    EDIT: Found the episode:

    https://imdb.com/title/tt0519698/

    >Seeing a kindred spirit, Baby-Doll springs Croc from custody to be her lover and partner in crime

    Baby-Doll [looks like an actual doll](https://imdb.com/title/tt0519698/mediaviewer/rm4104177152), which is super creepy when she’s shipped with characters that actually do look like adults.

  2. they did an amazing job with the Clock King as well. He was almost made to be an equal to batman in combat which was pretty cool

  3. This was my childhood. The DC animated universe and marvel animated universe of the 90s were some of my favorite cartoons to watch as a kid

  4. This show implemented so many good characters (the most well know now is harley queen), i loved how this was cartoonish yet so profond, it took the best to the loonie humor from the comic and to the dark serious tone from “batman return”.

    ​

    It was so good. IMO the best episode is still “joker’s millions”

  5. Given how tight a grip the censors had back in the day it’s kind of surprising that they let him be called “Killer” Croc. Keep in mind that Vegeta was sending Android 19 into the next dimension around this time.
