Harley Quinn (Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel) is a character appearing in media published by DC Entertainment. Harley Quinn was created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm to serve as a new supervillainess and a romantic interest for the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series, and debuted in the 22nd episode of the series on September 11, 1992. While originally intended to appear in one episode as just the Joker's henchwoman, she became a recurring character within the DC Animated Universe, and was later adapted into DC Comics' Batman comic book canon, beginning with the one-shot Batman: Harley Quinn #1 (October 1999). The character's alias is a play on the stock character Harlequin from the sixteenth-century theater commedia dell'arte.
