  • Trivia

    • This episode marks the only appearance of the Scarecrow in this series.

    • Perhaps an oversight, but Batman drove the Batmobile to the farm where he saved Robin and Wonder Woman, eventually defeating the Scarecrow as well. As the three departed in the Invisible Jet with the rest of the Super Powers Team at the end of the episode, Batman seemed to leave the Batmobile behind.Batman probably radio the Batmobile back to the Batcave after he arrived in the Scarecrow's hideout.

    • Goof: When Robin is propped up on the scarecrow stand, the scene alternates at various times from his having his gloves on to his not wearing the gloves at all.

  • Quotes

    • Batman: (to Scarecrow) Your fear career is over!

    • Prof. Crane: (to Bruce Wayne, referring to Scarecrow) Sooner or later, he's bound to discover the one thing that even frightens Batman and when he does, I fear that the Caped Crusader's fighting days may be numbered.
