“Batman: Strange Days” is supposed to be a tribute to the Dark Knight on his 75th anniversary, and it is, but more than anything the DC animated short, airing soon on Cartoon Network and now above, is a love letter to the long-gone but not forgotten Batman: The Animated Series. And it makes sense, with that series’ creator, Bruce Timm, coming back to bring us a moody, 1930s-style adventure with the long-eared detective facing off against the evil Hugo Strange.
