Imagine that, sir.
Someone dressed up in a frightening costume running around scaring people. What will they think of next?
The question is, why would Scarecrow want to destroy the university?
Perhaps he flunked phys. ed. Are you all right, sir?
The Scarecrow drugged me with some kind of fear toxin. I never know when it's gonna hit me. I'm having horrible visions of my father. He says I'm shaming the family name.

'The Scarecrow' Makes People Face Their Worst Fears
Here's another cool villain, "The Scarecrow," who is an ex-professor of psychology. (No wonder he's nuts.) Anyway, things didn't go well for him at the local university, so he's paying them back with terrorist attacks. His gimmick is a smoke-bomb in which people who inhale it suddenly face their worst fears. So, if it's rats or spiders or parental rejection - whatever your greatest fear - it will consume you, while 'The Scarecrow" does whatever he wants to do.
With Batman, his fear is more psychological: fear of his father's rejection.
This was another entertaining show with nice Deco art and a cool-looking villain. Alfred the butler also had some humorous remarks. It kind of freaks me out knowing Efrem Zimbalist Jr. is voicing that character, as I still associate that actor from his glory days as a television star way back in the 1950s and 1960s.
