Bruce Timm’s original rough panel of Harley seducing The Joker from BATMAN ADVENTURES: MAD LOVE and the final printed version.
"Editor Scott Peterson was a wee bit nervous about some of the ‘sexier’ elements of the story, mostly in the ‘Harley’s Inept Seduction’ sequence. I talked him into running most of it ‘as is’—Harley could keep her nightie as long as it was red, not any kind of see-through ‘flesh’ color, and he reluctantly signed off on her provocative poses in the first two panels of page 21. Panel 3 was redrawn upon request.
I thought Paul Dini’s ‘rev up your Harley’ line was brilliantly ‘punny’, and I had drawn her as if she were riding an old-style chopper, leaning back with her feet in the air. It looked more ‘goofy’ than ‘dirty’ to me, but I agreed to tone it down.”
