Three actors from Batman Returns- Branscombe Richmond (Terrifying Clown), Greg Cummins (Acrobat Thug), and Henry Kingi (Mugger)- reprise their roles after thirty years to perform the DELETED scenes of their characters from the original scripts! Also featuring anecdotes on how it was like filming the movie with Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Christopher Walken!
Featuring the voices of Danielle Moses as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Female Victim & Jackson Putnam as The Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot
As stated by Andrew, due to technical difficulties, parts of Branscombe's audio can be difficult to understand and we were unable to get re-recordings of his stories.
0:39 Three Criminal Intros!
Behind the Scenes: This episode was actually recorded a week before our Daniel Waters interview, but we needed time to gather separate recordings and edit everything together.
We were fortunate to get video recordings of all three actors for their introductions. Due to further technical difficulties, we could only get Greg on camera throughout the episode, which is why Branscombe and Henry become still photos in the video.
Jackson’s Penguin and Danielle’s Selina/Catwoman and Female Victim were recorded separately and edited in.
1:31 Episode Introduction
Ben met Branscombe, Greg, and Henry in person at the 30th anniversary event from Nostalgic Nebula. We covered that here:
BIG THANKS to Nostalgic Nebula and everyone involved as this episode would not have been possible without meeting these gentlemen at the event!

39:33 The Deleted Scenes of the Terrifying Clown (Performed by Branscombe Richmond)
Danielle was originally meant to join us in the episode, but due to the technical difficulties and scheduling issues, we had to record her lines separately.
The script excerpts came, once again, from the scripts available online.
You can check out the May 20, 1991 draft by Daniel Waters here, though there were definitely drafts written before and after that have not made it to the Internet: https://www.dailyscript.com/scripts/batman-returns_early.html
A later draft of Wesley Strick's revision of Daniel Waters's script is online:
We covered these drafts in our episode here:
50:29 The Deleted Scenes of the Acrobat Thug (Performed by Greg Cummins)
Also not mentioned is that Greg's Acrobat Thug made it into the kids book The Penguin's Plot that many Batman Returns fans grew up with. It was written by Michael Teitelbaum with illustrations by Rick Holberg and Tad Chow:
The voice of Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot comes from our fan Jackson Putnam, who previously voiced the Penguin in the opening of our Penguin-centric episode here:
