Batman and Robin were voiced by Olan Soule and Creator/CaseyKasem, who reprised their roles in the various incarnations of ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'' as well as ''WesternAnimation/TheNewScoobyDooMovies'' (where Kasem [[TalkingToHimself talked to himself]] as he was also Shaggy).

!!This series provides examples of:

* EpilepticFlashingLights: Done with the opening's flat background primary colors.
* HarmlessFreezing: When Batman and Robin get frozen by Mr. Freeze.
* AnIcePerson: Mr. Freeze, of course.
* LaughingMad: The Joker punctuates '''every''' line with maniacal laughter. Likewise, the Penguin punctuates every line with a Burgess Meredith-esque laugh.
* LimitedAnimation: A Filmation standard. For instance, when Bruce, Dick and Alfred are name-dropped in the intro, they just turn their heads or open their mouths.
* {{Pun}}: Too many bad ones to list.
* OpeningNarration: See the mouthful above.
* PungeonMaster: Mr. Freeze uses tons of ice-themed puns... an inspiration for [[Film/BatmanAndRobin Joel Schumacher]], perhaps?
* StockFootage: A Filmation standard, taken to an extreme when Batman and Robin launch themselves from the Batmobile in order to spend a minute on StockFootage before ''returning to the Batmobile''.
