In the Batman: The Animated Series opening, two villains are seen blowing up a bank, and Batman confronts and captures them for the police.

Have the two villains appeared in an episode? Are they just thieves used in the opening?

  • I think it's just a generic duo of villains. But that's speculation hence why I'm commenting. Commented Sep 10, 2019 at 17:23

The original storyboards describe them as


Hood(lum) #1 and Hood(lum) #2 don't appear to have actual names and don't seem to appear in any subsequent episodes.

    Incidentally, there's a fun description of just how well-designed the opening is at comicsalliance.com/…

    These are the best-drawn storyboards I've ever seen. Not a single stick figure. Commented Sep 10, 2019 at 21:17
