Holy Rewatch Batman! "Hizzoner the Penguin"/"Dizzoner the Penguin"
Penguin vs. Batman -- in the race for Gotham City Mayor! The Bat-rewatch does "Hizzoner the Penguin"/"Dizzoner the Penguin."

An excerpt:
Batman has toyed with political satire twice before, once at the end of “Batman Sets the Pace” when they poked fun at the 1966 California gubernatorial election, and again in the movie with the digs at world politics and military bureaucracy. But this is the first time they’ve embraced it so wholeheartedly, and it’s an absolute delight, quite possibly the show’s finest hour, though I freely admit that I’m slightly biased toward it because (a) I’m an election junkie, and (b) I’m rewatching it the same week that Donald Trump (who is pretty close to a real-life super-villain) became the last man standing in the Republican primary race.
