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>

Goofs

The Batsignal shown in the sky did not match the silhouette on the glass - the silhouette had a visible neck, while the projected image did not. Also, the tail was longer in relation to the rest of the image on the silhouette than it was in the projected image. See more »

Quotes

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?!!!
