* Despite the critical acclaim of said series, Creator/{{TheWB}} head Jamie Kellner wanted a new ''Batman'' series with the eponymous character in high school, which the network could market towards younger viewers and sell toys for. However, he didn't say that [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond Batman had to be Bruce Wayne.]]

* Kinda falls under RealLife, too: Bruce Timm and Paul Dini were asked to do a "Franchise/{{Batman}} in high school" show by WB executives. Their response? [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond Take advantage of the fact that nowhere did the pitch specifically mention Bruce Wayne.]]
** They did this sort of thing all the time, really.

*** One episode had a girl cursed to turn into a monster and attack anyone who trespassed on a magic castle. However, as Jade notes, there's nothing in the curse that says the girl can't invite people in.

* In the ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Batgirl Returns," the eponymous Batgirl agrees to help Catwoman find out who framed her for the theft of the Jade Cat statue, on the condition that she turn herself in to the police if she gets caught in a double-cross. Sure enough, when Catwoman tries to kill the real thief and take the statue for herself, Batgirl makes sure she surrenders. The cops make it to the end of the block before Catwoman slips out of her handcuffs, kicks them out of the car, and steals it.

*** Similarly, in "Scary Godparents", fairies can be out on the street on Halloween night without being discovered because the kids are all in costumes trick-or-treating and will simply assume the fairies are costumed kids as well.

*** Similarly, in "Scary Godparents", fairies can be out on the street on Halloween night without being discovered because the kids are all in costumes trick-or-treating and will simply assume the fairies are costumed kids as well. In general, this is hardly a problem, considering the general populace is dismissive of the existence of fairies.
*** Oddly enough, fairies don't have to worry about being seen non-human, non-magical races.
