Of course, the thing Gaiman always had wrong here was that the Joker ALWAYS killed people. He just took a break in the 50s and 60s. Hell, I just read a 40s story in which he did the killing-my-henchmen gag, and he's even MORE sadistic than the present day. If anything, his greater apparent insanity nowadays takes some of the edge off; in the 40s he enjoyed killing people a little TOO consciously, and wasn't crazy so much as incredibly cruel.

>>I think everyone who loves old comics sometimes feels this way

Well, not really, as the old comics were brutal except when the Code was in power. And besides, he's not talking about comics here. He's talking about the TV show. Look at the people he names.

And no, I'm not nostalgic for that.

I wish that characters like Egg Head would make their way into the comics somehow.

And I find myself personally more nostalgic towards The Animated Series, because that's what I grew up on. It was the perfect balance of dark and fun. I think that's why I'm often attracted to Paul Dini's Detective Comics work, because it almost read like the show in print.

Don't worry Eddie, most of them show up in the "Brave and the Bold" cartoon and they are AWESOME!

I've never really bought this whiny, wussy Riddler, especially when he references the 60s show, since that brings up memories of Frank Gorshin's Riddler, and that version of the character was a stone-cold psychopath a good deal more crazy and dangerous than Romero's Joker, and it's clear that if he wasn't in a family show he'd plainly be homicidal.

Of course, this is also Eddie talking to the media.

Then there's when they're not there:
