Tea time

Here is my depiction of the Batman villain, The Mad Hatter, for whom I have a certain fondness. Not is only his "schtick" is somewhat appealing ("Alice in Wonderland" obviously informs many aspects of the character) but, like some of the best Batman villains, his operates more effectively as a psychological threat than a physical one.

My favorite version of the character is the one from the landmark program Batman: The Animated Series and its related works, primarily because of Roddy McDowall, who supplied his voice. There was just something about McDowall's voice and performance (and probably the writing too) that fit that depiction so well.
