The Armoured Car at the beginning of the episode bears the company logo Dink's. This company appears in several episodes where an armoured car is seen. Dink's is a parody of the real life Brink's Armoured Car and Security Service, which is also famous for its home security systems. See more »
Well, you'll be happy to know I've drawn you a bath. Whenever you're ready, sir.
[Bruce approaches the tub, which is empty]
What's the deal, Alfred?
[Alfred holds up a small card, with a picture of a tub on it]
I said I "drew you a bath," sir. April Fools!
Very funny, Alfred. I guess I'll just take a shower.
Not a funnybone in his entire body.

As much as I like Shirley Walker's scoring work on this series, 'The Last Laugh' has never been one of my favorites. That aspect has lived on in my memory more than any other and, even though I still agree with that assessment, it's actually not a bad episode. The Joker is in full-on prankster mode, even as he's stuffing Batman into a drum and sending him to a watery grave. Despite his homicidal intent, the tone is especially gleeful. Batman really does get put through his paces on this one, and it's not a bad (early) Joker episode.
And the Joker's "You killed Captain Clown" is a nice (subtle) reference to "He stole my balloons!" in the '89 film. What Hamill did with that line was really nice. The man can do no wrong.
