The TropeNamer is the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "I've Got Batman In My Basement," which revolved around a group of local children hiding Batman from the Penguin as he recuperated from a heavy dose of poison. The production team [[CreatorBacklash does not think too highly of the episode]], citing the [[ExecutiveMeddling studio decision]] to make the Penguin resemble his deformed counterpart in ''Film/BatmanReturns'', instead of the comic depiction of a civilized gangster whose nickname comes from his tuxedo and top-hat, as well as the [[TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily bumbling antics]] of the villains.

Some character -- a RebelliousPrincess, an alien, TheChosenOne or the MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter[[labelnote:*]]or Franchise/{{Batman}}[[/labelnote]] -- is on the run, homeless, out of options, and needs a place to hide. It becomes the duty of the first available OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent they come across to stash the hero in their basement/garage/attic/bedroom until they [[SavingTheWorld Save The World]]/defeat the BigBad/find a portal back to their MagicalLand.

* The [[TropeNamer name of the trope]] comes from an episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', in which a boy hid an injured Batman in his mother's basement. It doesn't fit most of the rest of the trope, though, as when the kid's friend [[CassandraTruth frankly tells the mother what they're doing]], [[IgnoredConfession she assumes he's playing with his friends]].
