    Notes (4)

    • At the very end of this episode the criminal given for the following week's episodes is the Joker. However, it is actually the Riddler who appears in the next two episodes.

    • This episode was originally entitled "Zelda Takes the Rap."

    • As The Dynamic Duo speed through Gotham City, the streets of New York's Times Square area are seen in the background, along with two movie theaters playing El Cid and Boys' Night Out.

    • Listen for an inside reference to the show as Alfred states his reason for not polishing The Batpoles on Wednesday evenings because of his addiction with a certain television show. Part 1 of Batman aired on Wednesday nights @ 7:30.
