From the return of the cold and calculating Mr. Freeze to the interesting Easter eggs and homages peppered throughout, this was a massively entertaining episode.Who would have thought that anyone would crave Mr. Freeze's curse? But I suppose some would rather live forever than enjoy the life they have. Kind of funny given urban legends that it was a Walt Disney look-alike who wanted to cryogenically freeze himself. The portrayal of Freeze was once again solid. Yes, he is a villain, but only so far as his actions would help save his wife.
In addition to the amazing robots who paid homage to Miyazaki's Laputa: The Castle in the Sky this episode also contained a few robotic nods to DC characters including Bat-Mite, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Krypto, and Streaky the Supercat who made his animation debut via robotic toy. Lots of fun here in this gem of an episode that I had almost completely forgotten which also expertly set up the SubZero movie which would follow a few years later.
