Trivia

This episodes "bat-fight" featured only Batman & Shame, and was probably the only time that no stuntmen were used. Adam West & Cliff Robertson filmed the whole sequence. See more »

Goofs

During the prisoner exchange, Batman uses a chemical smoke bomb that makes all metals it contacts twenty times heavier, thus making the guns Shame and his gang are carrying too heavy to hold. However, Batgirl is also caught in the chemical's smoke, and her metal utility belt is not affected. See more »

Quotes

Shame: Doggone it, Batman! You cheated. You know we ain't no good in a fair fight.
Batman: That's what I was counting on, Shame.
