One of the "famous paintings" that the Clock King is attempting to steal appears to be Salvador Dali's surrealist masterpiece, "Persistence of Memory". If you'll look closely at this painting, though, you'll see that it now includes impressions of Batman and Robin, being attacked by monsters as they fall through convoluted space! Other pop-culture trivia from this episode: in an earlier scene, the Duo stop by the Dunbar Diner, looking for a waitress named Thelma Timepiece, who used to be the Clock King's moll before she went straight. They're met by a new waitress, who tells them that Thelma quit the previous week, to go "back to her small town in the Midwest"; this is a reference to "Peyton Place". Also in this episode, we learn that Batman and Robin like their Batburgers medium-rare, and prefer double orangeades to wash them down with. See more
