When a small child asks you if you're Batman, it's pretty hard to say "no," and Donald Trump couldn't resist taking the bait yesterday. That gave the Jimmy Kimmel Live! team an excuse to swap out Batman's original dialogue in The Animated Series with Donald Trump's worst quotes.

What if The Guy Who Made Batman: The Animated Series Made Star Wars?

For A More Civilized Age

Bruce Timm, one of the creators of Batman: The Animated Series, didn't make Star Wars. But back in the nineties, he did pitch to see if he could get the job of doing the comic book adaptation of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. He didn't get it (he told one interviewer that this was fine with him, once he saw the film: getting the job "would have killed me!") but we do have these lovely images that he used to prove that he could do the job.
