This movie is technically the very first example of a Superhero film from a major Hollywood studio, proceeding Creator/RichardDonner's ''Film/{{Superman}}'' by 12 years. Previous efforts to bring DC and Marvel characters to the big screen were limited to matinee serials, cartoons, and the 58-minute indie film ''Superman & the Mole Men''.

Added DiffLines:

* AlasPoorVillain: Robin is truly sad when he realizes the rehydrated Guinea Pigs were permanently turned into anti-matter and thus KilledOffForReal.


Added DiffLines:

* ClarkKenting: Catwoman/Miss Kitka, though the combination of Catwoman’s mask and Kitka’s Russian accent does make it plausible to not connect the two together. However, this also assumes that Batman and Robin have never seen Catwoman unmasked, which is unlikely since it seems that Catwoman has been previously caught and imprisoned.


Added DiffLines:

* DemotedToExtra: While Catwoman, the Penguin, and the Riddler all play critical roles in the plans against Batman, the Joker is essentially a glorified henchman. His only major responsibility is servicing Commodore Schmidlapp.


Added DiffLines:

* HopeSpot: The United World Council appears to have been successfully re-hydrated without any problems … until they start talking.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoOmniscientCouncilOfBickering: Both the United World Council and the United Underworld


Added DiffLines:

* ThouShaltNotKill: Exagerrated with Batman’s unwillingness to rid himself of the CartoonBomb if it were to kill any living thing. Batman utters the [[MemeticMutation famous line]], “Some days you just can’t get rid of a bomb,” after refusing to throw the bomb at a flock of ducks.

* NoOSHACompliance: It's not lingered on, but a single switch is the only difference between the Batcave's water dispenser pumping out clean drinking water and "the heavy water we use in recharging the atomic pile" -- the same atomic pile into which a teenage girl fell to her death in the very first episode.

Added DiffLines:

* NoConservationOfMass: Dehydrating a fully grown adult male produces about a pound of powder and maybe two pounds of water. Rehydrating them takes about as much. Where the other 98% of their mass goes is anyone's guess.

* SpoofAesop: While climbing up the wall of Ye Olde Benbow Tavern, Batman pauses to remark to Robin that they won't be viewed as conspicuous due to the many drunkards hanging around the wharf (see UnusuallyInterestingSight). Robin later takes the lesson a little too far by suggesting it'd have been a good thing if Batman had let the entire tavern blow up, with Batman having to remind him that [[CaptainObviousAesop alcoholics aren't totally irredeemable and shouldn't die in an explosion]].
