Trivia

About 12-13 minutes into this episode, Batman and Robin are asking the man at the front desk of the Gotham City Museum to close the museum. Behind Robin is a human figure riding on the back of a dolphin. This 'dolphin' figure was one of two matching figures that are seen in The Poseidon Adventure (1972) on each side of the forward end of the Poseidon's ballroom (where the Christmas tree is located). They sit on a lit up shelf in a recessed area of each wall. See more »

Quotes

Aunt Harriet Cooper: I'm afraid you're going to have to practice more diligently, Dick. You're just not making any progress with Chopin.
Dick Grayson: Gee whiz, Aunt Harriet, what's so important about Chopin?
Bruce Wayne: All music is important, Dick. It's the universal language. One of our best hopes for the eventual realization of the brotherhood of man.

I Am Wild About This Two-Parter
28 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I have reviewed many Batman episodes on the IMDb and this two-parter is probably the second best two-parter (after the pilot) in the whole Batman series. I tell it like it is, and with that in mind, let me say that there is nothing I can point out as being wrong with this two-parter: it just goes from one great scene to the next!

Amazing film-like television with amazing characters and amazing images. Even narrator William Dozier sounds more thrilling than usual. In this first season, Batman was an adventure series first and a comedy second. The Joker Is Wild features some Joker moments in act one that are not too unlike some of The Joker moments in the Warner Brothers Batman motion picture of 1989.

So here it is, some totally wild film-like television that you will never forget!
