  • Notes

    • Commissioner Gordon once more gives mention of his daughter, Barbara, in this episode. Although she debuted in the comics a few months before (January 1967), she had yet to debut on the TV series.

    • Once again, the series edits footage from the 1966 Batman: The Movie of The Dynamic Duo flying in The Batcopter.

  • Allusions

    • Commissioner Gordon: Oh, Batman, wherefore art thou?
      Commissioner Gordon gives his version of the famous line from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Unfortunately, he makes the common mistake of presuming that 'wherefore' means 'where', while it actually means 'why'.

    • Commissioner Gordon: Okay, Nanook, let's go.
      Referencing the 1922 film Nanook of the North, a silent documentary about the lives of Inuit Eskimos.
