I didn't mind Knox in the film and I would've liked to see him return, but with the way Returns was written there would have been nothing for him to do. Had they gone the route of making a direct sequel then he possibly could've been worked into the film. great video finds btw.
I haven't seen this since 89 when I was growing up in Kansas City! I, too was a kid obsessed with Batman that summer and recorded everything I could find!! I know I had this on my tape. I remember his Tiny Dancer reference and her saying "You're just trying to make me laugh". Thanks for the flashbacks!!
