Stan Winston Studio designed and built thirty full-body mechanical penguin puppets - ten each of three different penguin species - and six mechanical heads and suits, all of which were interspersed with live penguins to create the Penguin's army. See more »
(at around 1h 23 mins) When the Penguin is controlling the Batmobile, a mechanical lifting arm can be seen extending from the side of the building, moving a police car that the Batmobile smashes into. See more »
Of the four films from the Burton/Schumacher Batman franchise, this is the only one in which the opening credits sequence does not feature/use the Batman logo or a variation on it. See more »
In the UK the film was cut by 9 seconds at its cinema release. One cut was of a clown swinging nunchakus, the other was of Catwoman putting some spray-paint cans in a microwave to start an explosion at a department store. These cuts also applied to all pre-2005 VHS and DVD releases. In 2005, the film was resubmitted for the special edition DVD release. The BBFC downgraded the certificate back to the original 12 certificate (which was not possible in 1992, when the 12 certificate was cinema only), and waived the cuts to the chain-sticks scene, but the aerosol in the microwave scene remained cut on the grounds that it was a potentially dangerous imitable technique. Various extra features being rated 15 caused the overall category of the DVD to be 15. The resulting cuts meant that the audio commentary was dropped from the UK release (probably because it would have been out of sync), although it is still mistakenly advertised as present on the DVD packaging. All previous BBFC cuts were finally fully waived in 2009 for the Blu-ray release, and the film upgraded to 15. See more »

Gross and dumb
I don't think I've seen this all the way through since it was in theaters when I was 13. I don't remember liking it much then, but I've long been thinking of re-watching it. It's developed a cult because of its excessive weirdness. It is that excessive weirdness that keeps it watchable. That, the awesome production design, Danny Elfman's score, and Christopher Walken. Without those elements, though, honestly, I don't know that this is all that much better than Batman & Robin (I'm not about to re-watch that one, but I did pick up Batman Forever on Blu Ray very cheap along with this - probably both will be a waste of money). If nothing else, it certainly plants a lot of the seeds that would grow into the monstrosity that was B&R. The script here is just awful, first and foremost. It's all just a mess, with all kinds of nutty crap thrown on the screen for little to no reason. It's terribly grotesque. Penguin isn't a rich man in a tuxedo, he's a mutant, and Catwoman is a zombie. It has a really dirty sexual streak. It gets really gross watching Danny DeVito perv all over everyone. It's chock full of terrible one-liners that sound awful even coming out of Michelle Pfeiffer. Batman is more or less forgotten for most of the film. Even when it's being aggressively weird, it's mostly boring. Walken really livens up the film whenever he appears - his murder of Selina Kyle is by far the highlight of the film. It's a shame he disappears for a long stretch in the second half. The first Burton Batman holds up pretty well. This one, not so much.
