Trivia
The character of Dinah was originally intended to be a revision of the comic book character Black Canary. Outcry from comic book fans contributed to the character being retooled to become the Canary's daughter instead (with the Black Canary herself making an appearance in one episode).

Q
Why isn't this like the comics?
A
BOP is best appreciated as an "Elseworlds" story; it exists in a continuity all its own -- apart from the comics, films, etc. (i.e., in this continuity, Joker is alive.)The show draws from several sources: the comics, the films, and "Batman: The Animated Series" (cf., Harley Quinn and the voice of Mark Hamill as the Joker.)
Q
Why did they have to kill Catwoman?
A
In the comics, that was what led Helena Wayne to become the Huntress. In more recent years, however, the Huntress character was revamped as a different person altogther, and has no family ties to either Batman or Catwoman.
Q
Where's Batman/Batgirl? You can't have a Batman show without Batman!
A
"Birds of Prey" is not about either Batman or Batgirl. The show is about Huntress, Dinah, and Oracle (who used to be Batgirl.) The title of the show -- "Birds of Prey" -- pretty much says it all.It is stated in the show that Batman disappeared after the Joker killed Selina. Bruce Wayne left the city and is in an unknown location, but he is still alive.
