Batman Stands Pat (2) - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Batman and Robin break through Mad Hatter's window, several large chunks of glass remain attached to the wood frame. In the very next shot, they've vanished.

The Joker Is Wild (1) - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Batman and Robin are in the museum speaking with the director, Batman's chest emblem is high enough on his chest that it nearly touches the bottom edge of his cowl. In the next shot, when he leaves the museum, the emblem has moved down several inches.

Smack in the Middle (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Molly is about to disguise herself as Robin. But the wig she's holding isn't even remotely the same color as Robin's hair. Of course, as soon as she puts it on and transforms herself, the wig darkens and becomes Robin's actual hair.

00:05:45

Hi Diddle Riddle (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: While the unconscious Robin is being carried away from the Batmobile by one of Riddler's thugs, his cape loosens and appears to completely fall off just before they exit the frame. In the next shot, Robin is still being carried away but his cape is securely back in place.

Fine Feathered Finks (1) - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Batman starts the Bat-Turn, the parachutes are shown deploying on a 6-lane major roadway (3 lanes in each direction) in a very open area, but after completing the 180-degree turn, the car is shown driving away from the crumpled chutes on a much narrower side street among tall buildings.

The Joker Goes to School (1) - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In the batcave, Batman's cape suffers a case of over-the-shoulder/off-the-shoulder blues, going from one to the other several times between takes.

00:19:10

Jean G

Fine Feathered Finks (1) - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Batman reverses direction of the Batmobile via a "Bat-Turn", the car is shown from above turning counter-clockwise, but the next interior view shows the car is spinning clockwise.

The Clock King's Crazy Crimes (1) - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: During the fight in the art gallery, the papers on the desk to the left of the screen are scattered. But in some shots of the fight progressing, the same papers have straightened themselves back into nice, neat stacks again.

00:17:00

Jean G

Come Back, Shame (1) - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: After Annie drops the chandelier on them, Batman and Robin are knocked unconscious. No one's had time to move either of them, but when Andy comes into the saloon in the next shot, Robin has somehow shifted positions on the floor: he's not in the same spot or position he originally fell in.

00:21:30

Jean G

Batman Stands Pat (2) - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: At the end, as Bruce Wayne speaks to Magda, he's standing with his arms at his sides. When the shot cuts, his hands are suddenly clasped in front of him.

00:23:30

Jean G

The Joker Is Wild (1) - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In close-up, Bruce Wayne folds his newspaper in half, leaving the folded edge facing the camera. The shot cuts to a wider view and immediately, the paper has reversed positions in his hand.

00:04:00

Jean G

Shoot a Crooked Arrow (1) - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: The arrow Archer fires into the window frame in Commissioner Gordon's office is, depending on the camera shot, angled up, then down, up, down and up again.

00:07:30

Jean G

Batman Is Riled (2) - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Batman and Robin crash through the window, there's no glass left in the frame - at least not until the next shot, when several large shards that weren't there before suddenly appear at the edges.

00:11:50

Jean G

The Clock King Gets Crowned (2) - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Batman tosses a large white box at one of the henchmen. The box lands on the round dais of the clockworks, but as that dais begins to rotate, the box disappears. It pops back up a few shots later, now sitting on the stationary corner of the clockwork platform. But as the fight rages on, it vanishes again between shots.

00:21:30 - 00:22:10

Jean G

The Zodiac Crimes (1) - S2-E37

Continuity mistake: Robin is holding an upright 8-foot pole when Venus sprinkles her knock-out glitter on the Dynamic Duo. When the shot cuts and they fall to the floor, the pole has completely disappeared.

00:22:10

Jean G

The Puzzles Are Coming (1) - S2-E31

Continuity mistake: In the Batcave, Batman is holding Puzzler's pink balloon while he and Robin deduce its clues. The shot cuts to a wider angle when they turn to race to the Batmobile, and the balloon disappears.

00:12:50

Jean G

The Dead Ringers (2) - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: Tied to a conveyor belt, Batman and Robin move past a stack of boxes stenciled with the factory's name. Cut to close-up, and they're now back to a position right next to the boxes. Back to master shot, and the boxes are once again several feet away - at least until the next close-up.

00:02:50

Jean G

Barbecued Batman? (2) - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Between takes at the end of the final fight scene, most of the chairs shift positions around the table, the wooden partition screen that fell over during the scuffle has somehow folded itself, and a white cloth that was draped over one of the chairs has disappeared.

00:22:00

Jean G

The Minstrel's Shakedown (1) - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Alfred brings the lunch tray down to the Batcave, Batman is holding a soldering iron, working on the electronic bug. When the shot cuts to a close-up, the soldering iron vanishes, and he's holding a clear plastic probe instead.

00:10:15

Jean G

Barbecued Batman? (2) - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: While Batman is telling Octavia that she can go free, his hands are either straight down at his sides or clasped together at chest level, depending on the shot.

00:06:15

Jean G

Green Ice (1) - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: Mr. Freeze has frozen the commissioner's office, and when Batman applies plastic explosive to the door, a frost stripe appears that wasn't there in the master shot a moment before. In the next shot, the putty he's just put there disappears. And when the explosion occurs (even though Batman didn't add any detonators), it doesn't emanate from anywhere near the spot where he applied the putty.

00:06:00

Smack in the Middle (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Just after the Joker tells the fake Robin to turn on her homing beacon, a quick shot of the Batmobile approaching shows it isn't glossy black with cherise red trim as normal, but is instead flat black with white trim. This footage was from pre-series testing, painting the car different ways to see how it would look best on film, but somehow this footage was actually used in the episode by mistake.

00:06:20

The Riddler's False Notion (2) - S1-E32

Continuity mistake: When the Riddler has a blindfolded Robin out on the window ledge, the position of Robin's blindfold changes between shots, from covering his nose entirely to being just above it.

The Impractical Joker (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the fight in the fur salon, one of Joker's henchmen shifts locations instantaneously. In the first shot, he's on the far side of Robin, falling against the wall. In the very next shot, he jumps to a spot between Robin and the camera, where he takes a swing at Batman.

00:17:00

Jean G

Shoot a Crooked Arrow (1) - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Archer robs Wayne Manor's safe, an unconscious Dick Grayson shifts positions on the floor between takes. At first, he's lying with both hands folded over his chest. A few shots later, his left arm is stretched out over his head.

00:01:30

Jean G

The Joker Trumps an Ace (1) - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: The Joker reveals himself by throwing off his cape, which drops to the floor behind him. But when the shot cuts, the cape instantly disappears.

00:00:50

Jean G

The Zodiac Crimes (1) - S2-E37

Continuity mistake: Joker's floating zap-wand is hanging in the air right in front of Chief O'Hara's face. But when the shot cuts, it's instantly ten feet away, and is now floating behind the Joker.

00:01:45

Jean G

The Dead Ringers (2) - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: Batman folds up the Bat Shield and starts to tuck it into his belt, which it is much too large to fit into. In the very next shot, the shield has disappeared.

00:21:00

Jean G

The Spell of Tut (1) - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: As Tut prepares to re-animate the scarab beetles, his apothecary henchman stands to his immediate right, close enough to touch his shoulder. But when the shot cuts to a wider angle, the man is standing a foot away.

00:08:45

Jean G

Tut's Case is Shut (2) - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Tut's "pets," which are a little too obviously plastic, are crocodiles (with pointed snouts), and they're sitting on a grassy island in their water tank. The stock footage inserts, however, are of alligators (which have flat snouts) swimming in open water, with no island in sight.

00:02:30

Jean G

Batman's Satisfaction (2) - S2-E52

Continuity mistake: Britt Reid visits Bruce Wayne, and while sitting on the couch, stretches forward and places both hands on his knees. But in the next take, he's abruptly leaning back with his arms folded.

00:09:30

Jean G

The Clock King Gets Crowned (2) - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Batman and Robin are trapped in the overturned hourglass. They're sitting upright when Batman suggests an escape plan. In the very next shot, they're sprawled face down on the sand.

00:04:15

Jean G

Not Yet, He Ain't (2) - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: Penguin loads all his loot into the stolen Batmobile - so much loot that the trunk can't close. Yet in the very next shot, as he drives away, the trunk has somehow shut itself.

00:17:30

Jean G

He Meets His Match, the Grisly Ghoul (2) - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: In the bistro, Batman thwarts Joker's booby-trapped juke box by whipping out his bat shield. Afterward, he places the shield on the floor behind him. In the next shot, as he turns around, the shield has disappeared. He and Robin race off without retrieving it.

00:15:00

Jean G

Penguin Sets a Trend (2) - S2-E43

Continuity mistake: Penguin's van races by a Gotham City movie theater, passing three cars parked in front of it. In the very next shot, the Batmobile zips past the same spot in hot pursuit - and there are now four cars parked there.

00:20:20

Jean G

Marsha's Scheme of Diamonds (2) - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: In part 1, Marsha's prisoners included the mayor. Here, Batman rescues Robin, Gordon and O'Hara - but the mayor has disappeared. And oddly, no one mentions his ever having been there.

00:05:05

Jean G

The Yegg Foes in Gotham (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: Just before Bruce Wayne tosses the grape to set it off, Egghead's miniature radar bomb moves to a different position on the floor all by itself.

00:04:00 - 00:05:20

Jean G

The Clock King's Crazy Crimes (1) - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Clock King renders the art gallery patrons unconscious with a high-frequency sound wave. As they fall, one of the men drops his hat. When they come to and get up, the hat has disappeared.

00:15:20 - 00:19:10

Jean G

The Penguin's a Jinx (2) - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When the Penguin goes to Wayne Manor to put Batman and Robin to sleep with the gas from his umbrella, just before he shoots the orange gas at Robin's suit of armor, there's a quick shot of the armor's helmet. The problem is that there's already an orange stain on the face of the helmet from the orange gas that comes out of the tip of the umbrella, even before Penguin shoots any gas.

Batman's Anniversary (1) - S2-E45

Continuity mistake: Sitting at the banquet table, Batman has placed his left hand over his chest. When the shot cuts, his hands are instantly both down at his sides.

00:05:00

Jean G

The Joker's Hard Times (2) - S2-E38

Continuity mistake: After all the stow-away baddies jump from the Batmobile's trunk, they leave it open. Between shots, it magically closes itself.

00:19:30

Jean G

The Joker's Hard Times (2) - S2-E38

Continuity mistake: The Batmobile pulls up in front of the Platter-Porium, and you can see that only Batman and Robin are inside the car. When the shot cuts to close-up, though, Venus is sitting in between them. (Tight squeeze: it's a 2-seater and she must be straddling the transmission hump and hand brake - ouch.) The shot cuts back to full for them to jump from the car, and Venus has disappeared again.

00:13:40

Jean G

The Joker's Flying Saucer - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Batman and Robin both leap into the Batmobile and roar out of the Batcave. But the stock shot used after that shows Batman alone in the car.

00:03:10

Jean G

The Joker's Flying Saucer - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Aboard Joker's flying saucer, Alfred and Batgirl are sitting three feet apart, then shoulder-to-shoulder, then apart again, depending on the shot.

00:20:50

Jean G

The Bat's Kow Tow (2) - S2-E30

Continuity mistake: When Catwoman tries to tempt Batman into a kiss at the end, his cape is draped completely over the right half of his chest. Each time the angle reverses, though, it's pulled back over his shoulder in its usual position.

00:21:15

Jean G

He Meets His Match, the Grisly Ghoul (2) - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Batman surprises Joker and his henchmen in the gym, his shadow is on the wall behind them, his cape spread out and forming a menacing bat shape. But when the shot cuts to him and Robin, Batman's cape isn't spread. He's standing with his arms down.

00:20:40

Jean G

The Purr-Fect Crime (1) - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: Catwoman dangles an unconscious Robin face-down on a tilting board over her tiger pit. He comes to, pulls his arms free and clutches the board's edges. In the next, closer shot, he's unconscious again, wakes up and repeats the grabbing-the-board motion.

00:07:30

Jean G

The Purr-Fect Crime (1) - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: Catwoman curls up with a large red book. In the master shot, she's holding and reading the lefthand pages. In the close-up insert, her hands are suddenly grasping the righthand pages instead. Cut back to master shot, and she's again holding the left side of the book.

00:08:30

Jean G

The Unkindest Tut of All - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When the Batmobile pulls up to the theater where Tut's henchmen are emerging, Batman challenges them while standing at the open driver's side door. You can see his left hand closing the door, as well as hear it click shut - but in the next, reverse angle shot, as he and Robin leap into the fray, the car door is standing wide open again.

00:08:00

Jean G

Louie the Lilac - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: Lila comes through the bead curtain with the poison lilacs wrapped in green tissue paper. She drops the flowers, and in the next shot of them on the floor, the blooms don't even remotely resemble the ones she was just carrying - and the green paper has disappeared altogether.

00:10:55

Jean G

That Darn Catwoman (1) - S2-E40

Continuity mistake: After the drugged Robin clobbers Batman with a wooden chair, the broken pieces change their arrangement on the floor between one shot and the next.

00:20:50

Jean G

The Joker's Provokers (2) - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: After Alfred pulls out the key, two pieces of the little blue time-shifting box have apparently fallen to the floor. Joker snatches one of them up while struggling with the butler. But when Batman and Robin leap in for the next shot, the second piece has vanished from its spot on the floor.

00:20:30

Jean G

The Entrancing Dr. Cassandra - S3-E25

Continuity mistake: The Batmobile returns to the Batcave by remote control. It's facing left when we get a brief, three-second shot of Batgirl talking to Batman and Robin. In the very next shot, the Batmobile has instantly turned itself around and is facing right. Its turntable (which was actually pushed manually by stagehands under the platform) didn't work quite that fast.

00:18:05

Smack in the Middle (2) - S1-E2

Trivia

The 1966 T.V. Batmobile was created from a decade-old "concept show car" designed and built in 1955 by Ford's Lincoln Division. It was called the Lincoln Futura, and was originally a pearlescent pale green. After several years on the car show rounds (and an appearance in one movie, repainted red), it was sold for $1 to George Barris who stored it outdoors for 6 years. When FOX called looking for Barris to build a car for the show, they gave him 3 weeks, so he grabbed this already-weird looking car he had out back, sketched a few changes and passed the physical work to Bill Cushenberry. It was finished on time and the rest is history.
