Trivia

The opening of the episode is also mirrored in the opening scene of Supernatural: Like a Virgin (2011) with a small plane passenger asking the pilot if they "saw that" flying outside the window that looked like a large bat. Perhaps in respect to this, Batman is mentioned later in the episode. See more »

Classic Batman: TAS
21 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'On Leather Wings' wasn't the premiere episode, but it sure does lay down the fundamentals. Batman as a detective, working the case3 with crime scene analysis and actual legwork; even as he works in opposition to an array of trigger happy cops (while Gordon stands aside as a conscientious objector).

This is an exciting episode, with Batman taking on both the police department and a giant bat. The animation works nicely in the action scenes, particularly the big aerial chase scene. A solid treatment of both the Dark Knight and the misguided mad scientist.

8/10
