Added DiffLines:

* BareYourMidriff: Quite a few of the young female "Batirls" in the movie. Most notably the brunette that gets quite a bit of focus in the movie and the girl who wears a leopard outfit of all things.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Fanservice}}: Being a cheesy movie from the 60's, it's only natural to have young attractive barely dressed women dancing around more than a couple of times.

* CaptainErsatz[=/=]DistaffCounterpart: Batwoman, for Adam West's Batman; deadpan [[TheComicallySerious Comically Serious]] delivery and all.



* ColdOpen: This being ''Wild World Of Batwoman'', they (yes, there are two) have nothing to do with the plot whatsoever.
* CovertPervert: [[spoiler: JD turned into Ratfink because he loves to listen to other people's phone conversations.]]
* TheDitz: Batwoman's entire organization seems to be made up of these! Amazing that she doesn't fire all of them and get smart women. [[FauxActionGirl These]] [[DistressedDamsel gals]] [[IdiotBall should have the]] word ''stupid'' stamped on their foreheads. Even the more mature, grandiose, and reserved Batwoman isn't much better.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Tons, most notably the "horseshoe fight". To the point where when this trope actually ''doesn't'' happen (like in the seance scene), you're kind of disappointed.

* GilliganCut: Bat Woman assures Flanagan that her girls will work tirelessly to find the hearing aid. The movie then cuts to a beach where the Bat Girls are dancing and making out with boys.
* HalfHumanHybrid: What Rat Fink plans to do by breeding the Bat Girls with Prof. Neon's monsters.

* IdiotBall: Batwoman ''knows'' that Professor Neon has a pill that gives people uncontrolled euphoria, but during her dinner with Flanagan, when she sees someone at another table dancing, she shrugs it off and eats a bowl of soup she didn't order given to her by a suspicious waiter. "Hilarity" is too strong a word for anything in this movie, but ''[[HilarityEnsues something]]'' ensues.
* TheIgor: Heathcliff, a very pathetic one!

* SlippingAMickey: Done a lot. A batgirl [[spoiler: is kidnapped this way]] and you have the "Happy Pill" stupidity with the soup and chocolate milk.
* StockFootage: Warren used footage from the Universal Pictures film ''Film/TheMolePeople'' (itself not great, though miles ahead of this thing) for Professor Neon's monsters and ElaborateUndergroundBase. Since the characters from ''The Mole People'' show up in the foreground of the scene, a sequence is inserted showing Neon and one of the thugs walking through the cave wearing leather jackets identical to those of the characters from the other film.

** ...not to mention the "Dwight D. Eisenhower the Weird-Accented Night Watchman Scene"...or the shot in the club with the band when Mike goes "Oh no! Just when I thought this movie couldn't get any worse, Ringo's in it!". Heck! Any part or shot in the movie that looks good is stock footage.

* TooStupidToLive: If you're walking down a Mexican-Swedish StockFootage alleyway in a crappy DistaffCounterpart Batman ripoff and two goons demand your wallet...refrain from quoting a song by Badfinger and just give them what they want!
* UglyGuyHotWife: The Mook and the Batgirl. (Sounds like a sitcom title.)

Meanwhile, other Bat Girls are busily patroling the city, and one particular Bat Girl is kidnapped from a nightclub filled with her dancing colleagues. This Bat Girl, it turns out, is to be used as a bargaining chip by Mexican wrestler ''cum'' supervillain Rat Fink, to coerce Batwoman into helping him steal an atomic listening device. But Batwoman insists on personally verifying the girl's safety first, and [[IdiotBall Rat Fink complies]], allowing Batwoman to rescue her and not have to commit the crime.

Now aware of Rat Fink's designs on the Atomic Hearing Aid, Batwoman alerts the device's manufacturer and arranges for her Bat Girls to guard the device until such time as it can be disposed of. But Rat Fink's goons infiltrate the company using {{Paper Thin Disguise}}s and drug everyone, allowing them to steal the device and kidnap that same Bat Girl ''again'' by the young Mook who has fallen in love with her.

* FauxAffablyEvil: Professor G. Octavius Neon. For most of the movie he comes across as a generally decent guy (for a MadScientist) who was unfortunately caught under the thumb of a dangerous super criminal, and there are times when he shows genuine concern for his monsters, who he treats as his children. Then you reach the film's {{Denouement}} when Heathcliff regains his voice. [[spoiler: He reveals that he was formerly Neon's best friend and primary source of funds, before Neon secretly performed dangerous experiments on him to turn him into a gibbering simpleton, apparently so that Neon could have unlimited access to Heathcliff's money.]]

Not to be confused with {{Batwoman}}, a DCComics character. Though, obviously, [[{{Mockbuster}} that's what the producer was hoping for.]]
