Storyline

Batman manages to escape the Riddler's death trap. He and Robin decide to lay low until they can figure out the Riddler's caper. Meanwhile, the Riddler frees King Boris, who brings a gift to a major monument in Gotham City. It turns out the Riddler has substituted a bomb for King Boris's gift and he is demanding a ransom. The Riddler, though, overplays his hand, enabling Batman and Robin to capture the Riddler and his gang. Written by Bill Koenig

Trivia

Look for a visual joke in this episode: after the Dynamic Duo escape from the Riddler's deathtrap and return to the Batcave, Batman phones Commissioner Gordon to update him on the latest developments in the case. During this scene, the perspective keeps switching to show Robin pacing back and forth behind Batman at one end, and Chief O'Hara and another policeman pacing back and forth behind Commissioner Gordon at the other.

Goofs

During the scene which begins this second parter, in which Batman and Robin are in the process of being spun to death on the Riddler's giant machinery wheels, "Robin" can clearly be seen to be a life-sized stuffed rag doll; the stuffing in "his" legs shifts progressively towards the center of the wheel.
