  • Trivia

    • For once, The Dynamic Duo enter through the rear of Police HQ.

    • When Batman tells Commissioner Gordon to be on the lookout for a female suspect, Gordon seems shocked at the thought of a criminal being a female although Robin had mentioned Catwoman only seconds earlier.

  • Quotes

    • Gordon: The same strange pattern every year. Precisely $100,000 each April 1st.
      O'Hara: Glory be. I've got it. It's to pay his income taxes.
      Batman: A loyal taxpayer, stooping to criminal methods?
      O'Hara: Ah, sure, when you put it that way.
      Gordon: I fear you're growing cynical, Chief O'Hara, The notion of a faithful taxpayer robbing a bank is clearly ridiculous.

    • Robin: (to Batman) Holy backfire! What have they done to poor Aunt Harri... (Robin notices a guy near them) What have they done to that Miss Cooper? (cuts to Zelda the Great's hideout as Zelda is present with Aunt Harriet in a straitjacket and hanging over a vat of boiling oil)
      Narrator: Holy backfire's right. Aunt Harriet has just one hour!! What'll it be?? Splash or salvation?? Hold a hopeful breath for Aunt Harriet until tomorrow night. Same Bat-Time!! Same Bat-Channel!!
