    8.0
    For me, it's a dull mid-season adventure. But the angle of Batman and Robin being returned to outlaw status - even if tongue-in-cheek - makes for interesting viewing.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Robin: We're sure taking a chance, Batman.
      Batman: What's the matter, soles of your boots slippery?
      Robin: Heck, no. I mean when we put the fake jewels in Miss Starr's safe, take the real ones out. We could be nailed as crooks.
      Batman: That's a chance we'll have to take, Robin. In our well-ordered society, protection of private property is essential.
      Robin: I guess you're right, Batman. That's the keystone of all law and order.

    • Narrator: Batman and Robin...A swinging pair of dead ducks! What on Earth can save them?? Don't shoot, Commissioner! Don't shoot!!
      Penguin: All set, my laddies.
      Commissioner Gordon: We're set.
      Penguin: Now on my instructions. Ready? Aim!
      Narrator: Good grief! Good night! Double funeral tomorrow? Same Bat-Time, Same Bat-Channel! Can YOU see any way out??
