Ink Blots XXX - Batman: Chase Me

This short film is included as an added bonus on the Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman DVD released in 2003. But I am going to give it away for free thanks to youtube. Lucky You!

This charming tale is set to a smooth jazzy swanky tune and has Batman in hot pursuit of the Catwoman. Not a word is spoken, allowing the mood to persist. The chase takes the Bat and the Cat over rooftops, through traffic and even onto a speeding train. The animation maintains designs established in The New Batman Adventures TV series (a follow up to Batman: The Animated Series) and this short is able to keep the fun level high while delivering some decent action all in 6 minutes. What's not to like here? Batman: Chase Me earns an A-. Check it out!

This is great short with better animation than the 'Batwomen' feature that it came with!

The thing I didn't like about this film was the music. The jazzy latin music isn't Batman! I would have prefered a dramatic score.

Looks like YouTube had to pull it, but thanks for the effort!
