If you thought I was going to let a penguin themed week slip by without doodling Danny DeVito from Batman Returns, you were wrong!
That movie always comes to mind around Christmas time and how dark, creepy, and gaw-damned sad Christmas in Gotham can be. Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin is kind of a sad character to begin with. All of his inherited wealth couldn’t buy him acceptance by society for his outward appearance and lusting-after-raw-fish ways. Perhaps this is a reflection of our own vain culture? Oooh ahhh!
Also, anyone remember the Batman Animated Series episode where Penguin gets out of jail, determined to live a clean life, and is duped by some high society douche bags into being his friend so they could laugh at him? Pretty awesome episode from a pretty awesome cartoon.
