    Not the greatest episode, but fun to see Dick Grayson meet Batman for the first time. Lorenzo Semple weaves in a nice theme here: study hard and be like the Dynamic Duo. Be and slacker and wind up a criminal. Not universally true but a noble message to preach.
  • Three lemons = Zap!!

    Interesting episode in which the Joker buys an old slot machine company and uses it as a hideout to lure high school kids into a life of crime, using vending machines to dispense money, stocks and bonds instead of products (oh yes, let's not forget the armed jukebox). Batman and Robin go to the school at night to try and catch the Joker but he catches them, straps them to electric chairs while a slot machine determines their fate. 3 lemons = 50,000 volts of electricity. Fortunately a power failure foils the plot. They later determine that the head cheerleader, Susie, is part of the gang. The Joker sends her to put exam answers in the vending machine along with some perfume which she does not know is poison. Batman and Robin save her, she reveals that the Joker intends to catch the basketball players holding the exam answers via his camera and the Dynamic duo foil the Joker again.
