Joker’s Worst Prank Played At The 1989 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The year is 1989, DC Comics is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Batman’s debut and Tim Burton’s box office blockbuster Batman is the highest grossing film of the year!

Once again Batmania has swept the country but, thanks to Jack Nicholson’s performance in the aforementioned film, The Joker also saw a surge of popularity.

The 63rd annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade teased a Joker appearance. Unfortunately kids tuning in expecting Nicholson’s Joker were in for a huge let down!

You can watch this travesty below!

This Joker turned out to be comedian and impressionist Fred Travalena.

My love of comics started at the age of 5, when visions of mythic beings fought their way across my TV screen. Batman '66, Super Friends, Wonder Woman, and Superman '78 filled my early childhood with imagination and adventure. Soon enough I found the spinner rack! Batman, Justice League and DC's Who's Who kept me coming back for more. I've seen the death of hope, justice broken, a light extinguished, and a universe torn! A kingdom come, the lightning return, a triumph of evil and a multiverse reborn!
