Then end credit sequence features Batman doing the "Batusi", which he did in the pilot episode for the 1966 TV series. Catwoman also does her own "Catusi". The dance names are references to a popular dance of the 1960s, "The Watusi". The format of the sequence is also similar to the end sequences of many of the 60s beach movies starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, although the dances were performed by Buster Keaton and his go-go girlfriend, Bunny.

The campy return of Adam West mixed with our more adult look at Batman
Batman has changed a lot since the days of Adam West came and put on the suit. It is to the point where it seems like no one even remembers that Adam West was the original Batman. However DC animation has helped bring back the old Adam West styled Batman in a major way. While also realizing those original fans have probably grew up now so is more willing to lace the film with more sexual humor and also press buttons with the whole Batman taking around a boy with tights and how strange that really is.
This movie also takes a clean shot at the new darker Batman who is more willing to be on the edge and do whatever it takes to make the villains pay for there crimes. It is quite a interesting look on what Batman was in the 60s to what Batman is today.
Catwoman also is updated to be a little more similar to the type of character she has become today. Selina Kyle has started to run that line between hero and villain and this movie easily lets us know that is trying to do that. From her working with the boy wonder to help Batman or taking on the villains she had once partnered with. The film does a great job showing us the new Catwoman.
Overall Batman Return of the Caped Crusaders is a great return to that 60s Batman world and knows how to have fun with its inclusive stories and campy aspects as well. The movie is quite a whole lot of fun to enjoy for those fans
