Did You Know?


While at Leslie Thompkins's home, Bruce Wayne picked up The Caduceus, a book that contained the photographs and names of all the medical graduates from Thomas Wayne's, Leslie's and Matthew Thorne's year. The book had a caduceus sign on it with only one serpent instead of the traditional two. The Caduceus is often confused with the real symbol of medicine, the Rod of Asclepius. See more »


When Bruce looks through his father's medical school yearbook, under Matt Thorne's name it says the year was 1907. Bruce said earlier that Throne, Leslie Thompson, and his father graduated 40 years ago, so that would mean that this would be taking place in 1947. Throughout the series, color TV and video games are shown, so taking place in the 40's would not make any sense. See more »

Batman 'Tazed;' We Meet Matt & Leslie
26 May 2009 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

The "don't taze me, bro!" line is a few years old now but this episode, long before taser guns, reminded me of the device that is now used by law enforcement.

Here, the gun is a called a "medical Protype," a laser or taser-type gun which stuns Batman, and lays low for a little while with a concussion. People-wise, this episode features the story of "Matthew Thorne," the brother Of "Rupert Thorne" (John Vernon), chief bad guy of Gotham. Matthew is a good-guy and labeled "The crime doctor." In short, lost his license but still has a good heart and desire to do do the right thing and be "a respectable doctor." How gets to do that despite being under the thumb of his evil brother, is the story.

In the story, we also meet "Leslie Tompkins" (voiced by Diana Muldar). Leslie was old friend with Bruce Wayne's dad, and has been, we learn, Bruce's doctor. After that laser attack, he goes to her for help. She runs the Thomas Wayne Memorial Free Clinic but is "Leslie" is annoying, grouchy old bag or sorts and should be more likable than she's portrayed here. Whatever, the bad guys go after he and Batman has to come to the rescue.

There's more.....but while spoil things. Watch the episode: it's decent.
