Synopsis for "The Cat and the Clown"
The Joker impersonates an actor, who owns priceless cat, but Catwoman beats him to it as she kidnaps both the actor and the cat. This begins a three-way conflict between the actor, Joker and Catwoman. Joker manages to get information about Catwoman's location and in the meantime, Mr. Springer, the actor, manages to break free from Catwoman's trap and escapes.
A few moments later, Catwoman is visited by Batman, but she soon discovers that he is in fact the Joker in disguise. As she prepares to confront the clownish criminal, another Joker appears and a confrontation between the real Joker and the doppelganger begins. After a long struggle, Catwoman deduces that only one person could imitate the Joker to perfection and that is Mr. Springer. In order to stop the fight, Catwoman releases Springer's cat, hoping that it would go to its master. Catwoman then knocks unconscious the man that the cat choose, but she soon learns that the cat had chosen the real Joker and Springer takes the opportunity to capture Catwoman and bring the authorities to take away both criminals.
Once again, Joker finds himself in Arkham Asylum, where the inmates are allowed to watch Mr. Spinger's latest film, but during the screening, it is revealed that Joker had managed to switch his own version of the movie, getting the last laugh in this caper.
