The two Animated Jokers 10-14-09

This blog entry will be about the two versions of the Joker from the two animated series.

The first one(Batman: the Animated Series) is voiced by Mark Hamill(Luke Skywalker from Star Wars).

This version has a lot in common with the comic version:

Note: I would've found a more recent version, but this one illustrates my point the most.

The second version is from the more recent animated series, The Batman, voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.

Now it is time to compare the two designs.

The Joker from the 1990s animated series is a bit more subdued and closer to the original comic book design than the 2000s Joker. He's also campier and lighthearted than the 200os Joker.

The 2000s Joker's design makes him look crazier, wackier, more psychotic, and more energetic than the 1990s Joker. His hair also resembles a jester's cap, which beings across the message that he IS a real Joker.

Which design is more well-known? According to quotation marks), there are more search results for the Mark Hamill design than the Kevin Michael Richardson design.
