* ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy: Kenner's tie-in toy line did have a number of odd gimmick figures and vehicles that weren't in the movie, which is par for many tie-in toy cash-ins. That's not the example here- no, when Kenner made their line, for some reason instead of making a new Penguin figure that looked like the character in the film, they simply used the old "Super Powers" comic-based Penguin tooling they'd made years before.

** The ''[[TheSimpsons Simpsons'' episode "Sideshow Bob Roberts" has a plot that [[FridgeBrilliance (unintentionally)]] closely parallels this movie's, with a seemingly reformed criminal running for mayor and a visit to a Hall of Records (albeit by a sympathetic character [[note]] Lisa [[/note]] rather than a villain).
