  • Prequel To The Superfriends

    It was The Scooby-Doo Movies that was the possible springboard for the Superfriends. With the popularity of Batman and Robin that Hanna Barbera gave the green light for the Superfriends. They incoporated Shaggy, Velma and Scooby as Wendy, Marvin and Wonder Dog.
  • Here is what happened when Scooby-Doo, Batman, & Robin solved the case in the 2nd of a 2-case set with the Dynamic Duo.

    Scooby-Doo and the Mysteries Quartet found Batman and Robin

    from DC Comics fame for a long time, just to solve the missing link to the case of the rocket suit jumped off by

    the Joker-Penguin combination. First off, The Mysteries Inc.

    quintet and the Dynamic Duo, which makes the Super 7 of this airdate circa 12/1972, goes to a toy store to locate and seek the toy shelves for the Joker and the Penguin, who

    stole the rocket suit, but to make matters worse, Scooby

    runs a toy car ride and on a pogo stick to capture the

    villains who are not very funny. The Newark Police let the

    gang talk about how they managed to close the case before the Joker said "meddling kids!" Scooby-doo tried one himself. This episode was dedicated to the Boomerang

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: Professor Flakey tells Joker and Penguin that the flying suit is at the Hillside Aircraft Company in Gotham City. He gives no hint that he is lying until he meets up with Batman, but by then the two criminals had already left. They couldn't have overheard the real location and yet they still arrived at there at the Gotham Rubber Company.

    • Before they go to the lab, Batman's pants switch from regular to showing skin, like Robin, to normal again.

    • Joker and Penguin seem to be under the impression that Professor Flakey won't be able to escape. Right in Flakey's view, they flip the hidden switch that opens the door and exit.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Professor Flakey: What would you do with a sying flute?
      Joker: A sying flute?
      Professor Flakey: I mean a flying suit, made of rubber. When somebody puts it on they can air through the fly, I mean flare through the eye, no no, coming through the rye...no no no, fly through the air.

    • Professor Flakey: Poker and Jenguin are on their way to Gotham City to steal my invention.
      Batman: Sir, that's Joker and Penguin. With their tremendous head start they'll get your invention before we can catch them.
      Professor Flakey: Net nocessarily, I told them it was at the Hillside Aircraft Company but it isn't, it's really at the Ruther gobbam factory...I mean the Gotham rubber factory.

    • Professor Flakey: Walking through that water I felt like Crossington washing the Delaware, er, Washington crossing the Delaware.

    • Velma: Professor, lock the lab door after we've gone.
      Prof. Flakey: Oh yes, I'll lab the lock door. Oh dear oh dear, I hope the bil-mo-bat gets here soon with the dunamic dyo.

    • [Trying to figure out where Batman and Robin are going]
      Scooby: The roof! Roof!
      Shaggy: Geez Scoob, like I was just asking a simple question. You don't have to bark at me.

    • Professor: I spotted the right touch...urh, touched the right spot. Hello dog, I'm Professor Flukey, I mean Flakey. (sees Shaggy out cold in the water) Your friend is liable to catch cold sleeping in the water like that. Let's pull him out, leg a grab, greb a lag, grab a leg!

    • Professor: What do you want with a sying flute?
      The Joker: Are "sying flute?"
      Professor: I mean "flying suit!"

  • NOTES (2)

    • Professor Flakey is either so nervous or addle-brained that he constantly speaks in spoonerisms.

    • This episode was released on video in 1989 to cash in on the merchandising craze surrounding Tim Burton's first Batman film. Unlike the Sonny and Cher episode that was released on video the previous year, this tape had a wide release in stores across the country and is still fairly easy to find. Because of the constant changes in video technology, the prints that are currently running on Cartoon Network have a cleaner picture and more clear sound than the print that was released on video.
