    • Batman: (to Croc's henchmen) So... Either of you up to giving lizard-lips the old mouth-to-mouth? I didn't think so.

    • Batman: Crocs may like water, but they're no fish.

    • Killer Croc: You sure got a lot of bloodhound in you ... for a bat.

    • Batman: (about Croc's plan) Tens of thousands will be killed. Killer Croc: And I'll shed a crocodile tear for each and every one of 'em.

    Notes (14)

    • Ron Perlman also played a half-human character in the 1980's TV series Beauty and the Beast, where his character Vincent had strongly leonine characteristics.

    • Original International Air Dates: United Kingdom: September 5, 2005. Czech Republic: December 26, 2009 on TV Nova.

    • This upgraded version of Killer Croc seems to be inspired by Drago from Jackie Chan Adventures. Although Croc's size reminds more of one of Drago's henchmen. Take a look at the eyes, the moves, and the way they go for human help at their purposes.

    • This version of Killer Croc has a tail and a scar over the left side of his face.

    • Killer Croc's appearance in this this series seems to be more reminiscent of his version in the comic book's "Hush" storyline.

    Trivia (3)

    • This version of Killer Croc is very different to any other media. Tho he always has a plan, this Croc is more smart than, for example Batman: Animated Series, were he couldn't understand long words of he always said: "Hit him with a rock"

    • When Batman tricks Killer Croc into biting the pump control, and then lands on his head, the wheel spins counter-clockwise. However, it should have spun in the opposite direction (which incidentally would have filled the canals, not drained them).

    • When Bruce comes down the pole to help Alfred and pick up the Dummy's head, the Riddler's hourglass is behind them and the Dummy head is facing at right angles toward the hourglass. Then the camera cuts to a side shot and the Dummy head is facing directly away from the hourglass - it's rotated 90 degrees in less then a second, in the middle of Alfred's dialogue.
