** When the series finally saw the light of day, it was revealed exactly what the holdup was: the rights to the characters were owned by DC Comics, which is owned by Creator/WarnerBros, but the rights to the TV series, including its iconic elements like the costumes, Batmobile design, and the music, were split between Creator/TwentieththCenturyFox and Greenway Productions (William Dozier's production company). Classic Media (now DreamWorks Classics) had to buy out Greenway's share of the rights by negotiating with each and every one of William Dozier's heirs. They also attempted to buy out Fox's share and sell everything to Warner, but Fox instead chose to buy out Classic's share themselves. This lead to a dispute between Fox and Warner on who was going to release the series before Fox finally gave in and licensed the show to Warner.

* BillingDisplacement: Creator/JackNicholson is the top billed actor, not Creator/MichaelKeaton. And with danged good reason.

* BillingDisplacement: Creator/JackNicholson is the top billed actor, not Creator/MichaelKeaton. And with danged good reason.Justified, since Nicholson has more dialogue and screen time.

* GagDub: In 1981, two Brazilians did a [[ClusterFBomb profane]] and [[VulgarHumor vulgar]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4aO5V8ovsQ dub of the episode "He Meets His Match, The Grisly Ghoul".]] Once the internet caught hold of it in 2003, it reached MemeticMutation and earned both a book telling how the dub doing it and [[RecursiveAdaptation a webcomic retelling]].

* ExiledFromContinuity: Azrael, mostly because the book only had one creative team for its entire run. Jean-Paul Valley has never appeared in another book aside from his own that was not a Bat-book, with the sole exceptions of ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'' #1 & #4 and the frankly obscure ''Plus'' #1. Also partially because a lot of people hate him for some reason.
