Part 2 (of 3 so far) - The first two entries in this series are halves of a 12 minute short depicting the origin of "The Bat-Man" - Bob Kane, Bill Finger, and Jerry Robinson drew on a lot of silent films and pulp to create Batman and his enemies: here they are re-arranged to tell us about Bruce Wayne's crusade against crime. A bit of fun not intended for sale or commercial exploitation... what with the huge commercial value of silent films and everything.

Featuring the Joker... Oswald Cobblepot, AKA The Penguin... The Cat-Woman! The unspeakable horrors of the Scarecrow! The scientific genius of R'as Al Ghul!

Be sure to check out part one for the story of how young Bruce Wayne got into such a weird racket anyway.
