* AluminumChristmasTrees: While the Bat Shark Repellent, used in one episode and the film, is seen as ludicrous, shark repellent was researched since WWII.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: While the Bat Shark Repellent, used in one episode and the film, is seen as ludicrous, shark repellent was researched since WWII.[[note]]Indeed, Batman isn't even the first pop-culture action hero to address it - Literature/JamesBond was discussing it as early as ''Literature/LiveAndLetDie'' (1954)[[/note]]

** In "The Ogg Couple", Batman is reading from cards from the Batcomputer for names of egg-themed companies. The first one he reads is "the Lo Hung Company, makers of egg drop soup."



** While staking out Catwoman in a deserted section of the warehouse district in "The Catwoman Goeth", [[LawfulStupid Batman gets stuck with a parking ticket for leaving the Batmobile in an illegal zone]]; rather than allow the dimwitted officer's partner to let it slide, Batman insists that he should be held accountable for the deed as opposing to receiving special treatment, and goes with them to police headquarters. [[BrokenAesop Commissioner Gordon then revokes it anyway]]. Batman also instructs Robin in "The Cat and the Fiddle" that stopping to feed the parking meter is the right thing to do, because that money goes towards maintaining civic infrastructure.

* PaperThinDisguise: Common. ComicBook/TheJoker, in particular, was sometimes able to fool people by simply ''wearing a hat''. While wearing his suit and clownface makeup, and without changing his voice. Gothamites are kinda dumb.

* DemotedToExtra: The Riddler after Season One. Frank Gorshin was trying to get more money which led to a planned Riddler arc being rewritten for the minor Superman villain the Puzzler, and later a story where the Riddler was played by John Astin (Gomez from "The Adams") instead. Eventually Gorshin appeared for one final episode in Season 3.

* ThirdWheel: As far as Catwoman is concerned Robin is this to her and Batman, and she wants him ''gone''.

to:

* ThirdWheel: As far as Catwoman is concerned Robin is this to her and Batman, and she wants him ''gone''. It's something of a dark RunningGag that whenever it seems like Catwoman is just about successfully persuade Batman to give in to his feelings for her, he inquires "what about Robin?" to which her answer is always to kill him.

** Mayor Linseed was a takeoff on the name of the mayor of New York City at that time, John Lindsey.
** Queenie (Nancy Kovack), the Joker's moll during his first appearance in the third episode, is a pretty obvious imitation of Creator/MarilynMonroe; her voice, makeup, facial tics and even some of the costumes she wears are direct or nearly direct references to MM.
