  • That Was Fun!

    The Mystery Inc. Gang team up with Batman and Robin to solve a case involving counterfeit money hidden in punching clowns and a vanishing house. I have always despised the older Batman shows, especially the one with Adam West. While there were moments that were still extremely goofy (especially Robin's outfit and some very cheesy one-liners), this episode was just so fun to watch. Putting these two dynamic heroes with Scooby and his friends was quite original. Plus it was cool seeing The Joker and The Penguin in the same show. I had not seen an episode of The New Scooby-Doo Movies prior to this, and I'm glad I finally did.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Goofs: When the gang arrive back to see the house has disappeared, closeup shots of Robin have his R-insignia missing. Later, when they're at the BatCave, a shot of Robin shows his green sleeves colored red.

    • Goof: When the gang is about to go into the funhouse to search for Batman and Robin, Velma tells Shaggy and Scooby to come on, but she's speaking with Daphne's voice.

    • Goofs: At various times in this episode, Batman's gloves are missing, and at one point, even the gray pants portion of his costume, as his legs are bare like Robin's.

    • Goof: When the Mystery Machine leaves the BatCave, it's the reversed image of when it entered evidenced by the fact Batman and the steering wheel are on the right side and the van's lettering is backward.

    • Goofs: In the scene after Joker and Penguin are captured, Velma's glasses frames are white instead of black and the switch back to black and Batman's chest insignia is inverted. Instead of a black bat inside a gold oval, it's a gold bat inside a black oval. This occurs at least a couple of other times in this episode as well.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Velma: What about the vanishing house?
      Joker: The WHAT?
      Fred: The farm house that really isn't there.
      Joker: Listen you young jackanapes, I'm supposed to be the one making the jokes.
      Daphne: Do you know who Mrs. Baker is?
      Joker: Sure I know who Mrs. Baker is. (points to Scooby) That creature's mother, bow wow, arf arf.
      Scooby: Sheesh, cooorrrny.

    • (Joker and Penguin in skeleton costumes are being chased by Scooby)
      Joker: Inside, quick. (both run in and fall into the pit with Batman and Robin)
      Robin: Holy vertebrae, we've got visitors!
      Batman: Yes, Robin. And I think when we remove these costumes we'll find a couple of boneheads.

    • (As he and Batman fall into a pit)
      Robin: Holy pitfallllllllls!

    • Joker: Our "pit" is "full", how "pit-i-ful." (Laughs)

    • Batman: (viewing the fake five dollar bill) Just as I suspected--counterfeit! A masterpiece of duplication, except for one little slip-up.
      Robin: What's that, Batman?
      Batman: President Lincoln never wore a turtleneck sweater.

    • Batman: Look out, Robin. He broke free! (Joker tries in vain to climb the wall, but is unsuccessful, giving Batman, Robin, and Scooby a laugh) How about that? The clown prince of crime is now the crown prince of climb.

  • NOTES (2)

    • A first for the Scooby series: Shaggy says "Jinkies!" (when he wears the elephant mask)

    • Casey Kasem, the voice of Shaggy, also provides the voice of Robin, the Boy Wonder, as he previous voiced in The Adventures of Batman, the animated Filmation series from 1968.
