The arch-villains of the United Underworld - the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler and the Catwoman - combine forces to dispose of Batman and Robin as they launch their fantastic plot to control the entire world.

The script included an unfilmed scene in which the flight of the villains on the Jetpack Umbrellas was picked up on radar by the Air Force, who sent out a squadron to intercept. Sterling Holloway was actually cast as the commanding Air Force officer before it was decided not to film the scenes. See more »

Depending on the condition and color saturation of the print, the Joker's hair can appear orange rather than green. This was evident on the VHS releases of the film. The same thing would sometimes happen in the TV series (particularly during fades to black), but the mistake was more evident and consistent in the film version. The Blu ray release color saturation corrects this and the Joker's hair appears green as it should. See more »
The Joker, The Riddler, The Penguin & Catwoman have joined forces to wreak havoc on Gotham City......and then the World! Can Batman & Robin save the day?
Remember when Batman was fun? Not a serious scene in sight, no tales of revenge or personal demons to burst from the screen in a day glow burst of thunder. For many of us who grew up in the 60s and 70s this was the only Batman that mattered, pure unadulterated fun, all campy veneer and skin tight Technicolor suits. This full length outing for the dynamic duo is of course just an extended episode from the joyous TV series, just add a bit more money and you got a Bat Boat, a Bat Helicopter and erm, erm, Bat Shark Repellent! It's just wonderful I tell you.
How any of the actors kept straight faces is anyones guess, but they did, and they collectively delighted millions of children and like minded adults in a way that can't be described to the none believers, thank holy god for the caped crusaders that always kept us safe. 8/10
Footnote: Watching now in my middle years I ask any red blooded male this; is there anything more sexy than Lee Meriwether in the Catwoman suit? No wonder my Dad was a fan of the show back then...........
