Batman: The Animated Series

Day of the Samurai - S1-E55

Factual error: Batman is in Japan and tracks down Kyodai Ken by using Caller ID, which returns a seven-digit "555" number. Telephone numbers in Japan have 8 digits.

Two-Face (1) - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: The explosion that scars Harvey Dent and creates Two-Face is shown to have scarred and colored him light blue on the entire left half side of his face and neck. However, when he is first shown in the hospital, the parts of the left side of Harvey's face that aren't covered in bandages are still normal, as is his entire neck. (00:19:35)

Heart of Ice - S1-E3

Other mistake: When Batman is watching the security footage of Victor Fries' accident, at first Fries is addressing the camera directly which follows him and pans according to his movements and Ferris Boyle interrupting him, which would suggest a second person was in the room with a handheld camera. But after Ferris Boyle enters the room and orders Fries' experiment terminated, there are several cuts from various angles in the room suggesting surveillance cameras. The surveillance style footage also often conveniently cuts to the face of whichever person happens to be speaking or will cut to a certain angle in order to put emphasis on the action, all of which would require multiple mounted cameras and purposeful editing by either Boyle or one of his subordinates, which would be completely illogical since they don't want anyone to see the footage in the first place.

Beware the Gray Ghost - S1-E32

Trivia: The voice of Simon Trent/Grey Ghost is provided by Adam West. Adam West portrayed Bruce Wayne/Batman in the 1960's TV show Batman.

Two-Face (1) - S1-E17

Trivia: Harvey Dent's demanding of a mirror to see his scarred visage at his doctor's reluctance is very similar to the Joker demanding a mirror from his surgeon in the 1989 "Batman" film. (00:20:30)
