Episode Recap

As The Joker is about to remove The Batman's mask, The Caped Crusader escapes using a small Batmissle in his utility belt to set off the water sprinklers. The Joker uses a smoke bomb to make his escape. As they are chasing him on the catwalks above, The Joker uses trick confetti from his belt that wrap around Batman and Robin. Joker gets away before they can untangle themselves out of the confetti. The Joker broadcasts another riddle. They track him to his hideout and while in a struggle The Joker switches Batman's utility belt with his.
Batman is selected to christen the S.S. Gotham. The Joker decides to fill a champagne bottle with paralyzing gas. On the day of the christening, Joker's henchwoman hands Commissioner Gordon the bottle who in turn hands it to Batman. As Batman looks over the bottle, he notices the cork has been tampered with. After taking a pill and saying he had a headache, he hands Robin one as well and tells him to take it because it may be catching. As the bottle is broken, it releases the gas and everyone is knocked out. The Joker takes Batman and Robin back to his hideout and broadcasts his ultimatum on television; either he gets the S.S. Gotham or Batman and Robin will be executed like the famous display in the wax museums. Batman and Robin spring into action having taken their Universal Drug Antidote Pill. The Joker is caught and brought to justice.
