The Ring of Wax (1) - S1-E23

Factual error: When Bruce, Dick, and Aunt Harriet are looking at the globe, Bruce corrects Dick's mistake about Lima being the capitol of Ecuador and says "No, as you can see, I was right. It's the capitol of Peru." and points to the globe to show him. Based on the position of Europe facing the camera, he's actually pointing to somewhere in northern Canada. (00:02:35)

Captain Defenestrator

Pop Goes the Joker (1) - S2-E57

Other mistake: Not only can Caesar Romero's moustache can be seen, but the line between the white makeup and his skin on his neck. Also, when Robin's face came out of the clay, his mask was almost around his mouth. A moment later, the mask is back in place. Later, his face, mask, and body is spotless.

Movie Nut

Dizzonner the Penguin (2) - S2-E18

Other mistake: Batman throws himself into acid. Counting on acid-proof suits, Batman comes out unscathed, but his ropes didn't get burned off until he dipped the back into the acid. Also, even though he covered his face a moment, he came out with his face exposed, and undamaged, when it should have been burned.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When the Batmobile comes in, there's a turntable it parks on to turn it around. Sometimes it's seen for a moment as Batman and Robin get in, but then it's suddenly gone with no evidence of its existence a moment later.

Movie Nut

The Funny Feline Felonies (1) - S3-E16

Factual error: When Batgirl checks Batman's pulse, she states that his pulse is "three beats per minute." However, she only holds Batman's wrist for two seconds. There is no way she could have determined that pulse rate in so short a time. It is unlikely she could have detected even one heartbeat at that rate in two seconds.

Guy

The Riddler: You and your trained, exploding shark.
The Penguin: How was I to know they'd have a can of shark-repellent Batspray handy?

Batman trivia picture

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.

Answer: There wasn't one singular city used. It was shot in and around various locations in California, plus on a lot of sets and backlots. Ex. Some scenes were shot in LA, some in Pasadena, some in Santa Barbara, etc.
