I miss ye olden times

I miss when quirky gadgets were perfectly reasonable things to put in comics.  Like, in the issue below, the Mad Hatter has some straw hats delivered to a party Bruce Wayne is hosting in order to draw him (Mad Hatter) out.  It turns out that these straw hats are remote controlled, and have saw blade edges.  And it’s not like these hats made this issue too goofy.  At the end, Robin (Jason Todd) gets shot by stray gunfire, and the next issue has a dramatic scene where Leslie Thompkins gets on Batman about putting these kids in harm’s way.
