** Similarly, the narration refers to Batman and Robin as "glamorous figures that vanish as suddenly as they appear" -- while they're stumbling very conspicuously out of their Mercury in costumes best suited for kids' party entertainers.


The plot dealt with the duo facing off against the Wizard, a hooded villain whose identity remains a mystery throughout the serial until the end. The serial covers their adventures in attempting to thwart the nefarious deeds of the Wizard.

** Episodes ''Robin's Wild Ride'' and ''Robin Rescues Batman'' are bald-faced lies. Robin never has a wild ride[[note]][[Podcast/RiffTrax more like a gentle turn]][[/note]], and he certainly doesn't rescue Batman at any point in the episode. ''Target Robin!'' implies the Wizard hasn't targeted Robin until this episode. He's always targeted the dynamic duo. The reason for this is that the episode titles were written far in advance of the actual scripts, to entice theater owners into exhibiting the series.
