The Riddler leaves a clue at a Moldavian reception at the Gotham City World's Fair. Batman and Robin are summoned and are on the villain's trail. But he tricks them; the heroes think he's committing a robbery with a handgun. In reality, the gun is a cigarette lighter (the answer to one of the Riddler's riddles). Now, the villain is suing Batman, where he will be forced to reveal his true identity in court. The heroes, still convinced the Riddler is planning a major crime, travel to a discotheque. There, Batman is drugged by Molly, one of the Riddler's confederates, while Robin is kidnapped. Robin appears to be in great danger as the episode ends. Written by

According to the Unofficial Batman Batguide, the technicians initially didn't understand the comic undertones of the series. When filming Batman's reaction shot to Molly's death, one of the technicians thought Adam West flubbed his line when he says, "What a way to go-go," going so far as to tell the director of the perceived goof.

Robin drives the Batmobile into a parking lot. In future episodes it is made clear that Robin can't drive the Batmobile as Dick Grayson was still too young to have a driver's license. Dick Grayson would eventually get his driver's license enabling Robin to drive the Batmobile in season three. See more
