Paul Dini has said that Harley Quinn was partly inspired by seeing Arleen Sorkin wearing a harlequin's costume in her role as Calliope Jones, on an episode of Days of Our Lives (1965). As a result, Dini was subsequently inspired to cast Sorkin as the voice of Harley Quinn. In addition, Dini and Sorkin were college classmates together. See more »

Perhaps the best animated series ever. It provides great accuracy in the stories and characters, while allows innovation and imagination. They "pull no punches" and didn't try to make this a kiddy show. It became the trend setter for "Superman" and "Batman: Beyond", even though neither can compare.
