The arch-villains of the United Underworld - the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler and the Catwoman - combine forces to dispose of Batman and Robin as they launch their fantastic plot to control the entire world. From his submarine, Penguin and his cohorts hijack a yacht containing a dehydrator, which can extract all moisture from humans and reduce them to particles of dust. The evildoers turn the nine Security Council members in the United World Building into nine vials of multicolored crystals! Batman and Robin track the villains in their Batboat and use Batcharge missiles to force the submarine to surface.Written by

The promotional poster features Batman dressed in a different costume from the TV series, with black mask, cape, gloves, boots and outerwear briefs but red tights instead of gray. This is not an error, but a tribute to the original costume designed by Bob Kane to create Batman. Later it was revised by cartoonist Bill Finger, who changed the color of the tights from red to gray, giving him his definitive appearance for its first issue in Detective Comics dated in May, 1939.

(at around 6 mins) During the BatCopter flight, Batman instructs Robin to drop BatLadder, which is jettisoned automatically by pressing a button. After Robin hits the button, he states BatLadder away. When the camera cuts to the exterior shot of the BatCopter, we can see Batman unhooking the ladder by hand and then dropping it. See more »

Some TV prints cut Penguin's final line in the scene in which he dehydrates the pirates ("Every one of the them has a mother!"). See more »
A wise man once said "The 60s Batman movie is the greatest ever." I should know, because I was that wise man.
OK, it might not be the greatest movie, but it is one of the awesomest movies ever. Only in 'Batman' could intelligent writers come up with some of the most illogical situations and cheesiest dialog committed to screen.
A Yacht disappears in Gotham Harbour ("How can a yacht simply disappear... unless, it was never really there!"). On board was a 'superdehydrator', a machine that can extract the moisture from any living being, and in of the most logical displays of logic ever, Batman and friends logically come to the (correct) conclusion that the culprits are the combined forces of Penguin, Joker, the Riddler and Catwoman, apparently intent on world domination.
'Batman is scene-after-scene of pure brilliance - great situations, and the greatest dialog ever. 'Batman' is very funny, but only if you appreciate and enjoy the style, otherwise you will hate it. But only those who lack a sense of awesomeness would not like it, and who is really so un-awesome, that they can't even find the captioned fights just that little bit amusing?
8/10 - Awesome, simply awesome
