I loved the idea of Aardman doing a series of claymation shorts featuring Batman. The idea sounded inspired. Even the off the wall design of The Dark Knight that was released ahead of the shorts seemed fitting enough, but within the first 30 seconds of this short all of my expectations were out the window. My main problem with this short, and those that followed are that I can't even really talk about it very precisely. Other than calling it the first clay short or DC's World's Funnest (also a terrible name) #1 its hard to describe which short I am referring to. In my mind, this is "the one with the jumping," because I guess that's the most memorable part. Its a real shame that this was the first short of the DC Nation era, on the other hand, I guess sometimes its strategic to reserve your strongest efforts for later on.
