Storyline

Wealthy entrepreneur Bruce Wayne and his ward Dick Grayson lead a double life: they are actually the crime-fighting duo Batman and Robin. A secret Batpole in the Wayne mansion leads to the Batcave, where Police Commissioner Gordon summons the Dynamic Duo on the Batphone with the latest emergency threatening Gotham City. Racing to the scene of the crime in the jet-powered Batmobile, Batman and Robin must (with the help of their trusty utility-belts) thwart the efforts of a rogues gallery of flamboyant arch-villains, including the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler and the Catwoman. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

Frank Gorshin once said in an interview that he developed the Riddler's high pitched laugh at Hollywood parties, where he said the funniest jokes brought out the laugh. He further stated that he came to realize that it wasn't so much about how he laughed, but what he was laughing at that created a sense of menace. See more »

WANTED: VIDEO OF BATMAN SERIES
19 February 2003 | by (Bakersfield, California USA) – See all my reviews

It comes on everyday at 4 AM on TV Land. But they cut out too much footage just to make time for commercials. It isn't as fun watching it with parts cut out as it would be to watch Batman in it's full entirety. So I ask all my fellow Bat-Fans, why don't we make a unanimous quest for all 120 episodes of Batman to be released on video?!!!
