There's a very telling bit in the DVD commentary for Harlequinade where Paul Dini talks about this episode worked because Harley had Batman as a straightman, and how she really only works when she has another strong personality to bounce off, like Joker or Poison Ivy, but that he never thought she'd work as a solo character because "in her own comics, they'd probably go off having her be the straight-woman to her own wackier relatives and friends." I thought that was hilariously on-point considering it came out like a decade before this comic.
