* ContinuitySnarl: The comic is supposedly canon to the Franchise/{{DCAU}}, but...but there are a number of continuity issues, usually resulting from the comic making a call on something that hadn't appeared in the TV series yet, and the TV series subsequently deciding to go a different direction.
** Issue #4-5 of ''The Batman Adventures'' makes the Scarecrow ''way'' more sympathetic than he ever was in the actual show, using his CurseOfBabel plot not just for extortion, but to remind Gotham to not take education and literacy for granted (his methodology is also out of the ordinary; later writers would probably have given such a scheme to the Mad Hatter).
** Issue #7 does the same to Killer Croc. Cartoon depiction: a cold-blooded sociopath already guilty of several murders before Batman ever heard of him. Comic depiction: a morally-ambiguous underground wrestler whom Batman lets off with a warning.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Often dovetailing with ContinuitySnarl, above. The DCAU was in its infancy when this series originally came out, and the cartoon writers rarely felt obligated to follow a mere tie-in comic's continuity. Some of the more egregious moments:

** The Scarecrow breaks in on television and radio broadcasts to announce his scheme and demand a ransom in ''The Batman Adventures'' #4.[[note]]This is later turned on its head, when Batman and Robin figure out that his CurseOfBabel scheme is ''generated'' by little gidgets he'd installed in Gotham's TV sets. To foil him, Gotham's citizens ''need'' to adjust their sets.[[/note]]
