"the producers themselves did not understand why Farmer Brown would be demanding payment from the city, since he obviously already has cash. Revenge makes perfect sense, but extortion does not and they offered no explanation."

Maybe not in itself, but yanking cash from the city that shut him down as part of his revenge does. Particularly since your average city, corrupt or not, does not have that much cash to spare.

As for the initial funding: The case was apparently in the news. (The giant bull going berserk probably assured it for that day, at least.) Once the final decision was handed down, the Bat / DCA Uverse has plenty of villains able and willing to pay cash for Farmer Brown's ''assistance.

http://dcanimated.wikia.com/wiki/DCAU_Wiki has a huge amount of episode guides for the differing relevant Batman series.

  • Enhanced on DVD: A few things slipped through the cracks, however, such as Batman typing on a smooth, blank panel instead of a keyboard in "Harley and Ivy".

JBK 405, I can't provide an example for this because I didn't keep notes about the original broadcast of this series when I was two years old. I'm basing the entry on the DVD commentary of "Harley and Ivy" where they point out the non-keyboard and go on to say that generally mistakes were corrected in time for re-runs, without them actually going into detail.

We need to have some examples, otherwise it's a Zero-Context Example. Aversions-as-examples can work if it is a ubiquitous trope, but Enhanced on DVD is not prevalent enough to count. As it is, we need to put something in the entry apart from places where it did not happen to explain how it does apply to the series.

New entries for Villainous Breakdown: - Charlie, the accountant that Joker used as an unwilling pawn in "Joker's Favor" to help Harley sneak the Clown Prince of Crime into Gordon's honors coronation, used one against both Joker and Batman in one crowning Batman Gambit in which he not only gave a flat-out punch that knocked the Joker flat on his feet, but delivered a hefty "The Reason You Suck" Speech, while dangling a ( deactivated) bomb , that kept the only person who, for the past two years, has been making his life a living hell paralyzed with fear before his feet. - Poison Ivy, almost true to her character in "Pretty Poison", has one over her plants being maimed, burnt, or, through her eyes, "killed".
