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.

The Duo Is Slumming (2) - S2-E32

Other mistake: While Batman and Robin are ascending in the balloon, Robin picks up a chewed piece of gum, and stops the altimeter just before 20,000 feet. After that, Robin wondered how to get down. Beside Batman's head is the handle of the cord that would have started to let the air out, and started dropping them down.

Ma Parker (2) - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Batman is strapped into the electric chair, his utility belt is the standard flat-front, blank, yellow boxes. Once Batman breaks the wire loose to send a message, there is a large, black and yellow button attached to the the right front of the belt.

Guy

Penguin's Clean Sweep - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: After Batman has captured the last fruit fly, he goes to put the vial away in his utility belt. In the close up shot, his hands move toward the left side of the belt. The shot changes to a long view and his hands are now instantly coming up from the right side of his belt.

Guy

The Bookworm Turns (1) - S1-E29

Revealing mistake: At about the 6:40 mark into the episode, The Bookworm puts an explosive device in the Batmobile which is detected automatically. Batman pushes the auto eject to throw it out of the car. As the special effects prop explodes, you can see the rope it is hanging from as it swings to the side.

Penguin's Clean Sweep - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: In any of the close up shots of Penguin, his nose has a completely different skin colour than the rest of his face. Making it very obvious that the actor is wearing a fake nose.

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

Factual error: During the fight to regain his box, the Joker picks up an orange colored deep well drill bit to hit Batman. First, such a device has sufficient weight that one regular man couldn't lift it easily, let alone swing it. Second, the drill bit wouldn't be lying around in the water works guard office.

Movie Nut

The Great Escape (1) - S3-E21

Audio problem: When the camera shows the flames of the exhaust, the accompanying sound is wrong. The turbine starting up was played when the flames were seen, instead of the roaring sound effect.

Movie Nut

The Joker's Flying Saucer - S3-E24

Plot hole: A time bomb is placed under the dashboard of the Batmobile and goes off inside the batcave. Much of the batcave is ruined, including fallen I-Beams, but the Batmobile has no damage to it even though the bomb was planted in it.

The Catwoman: You dismal bird! You and your submarine, Where has it got us now?
The Penguin: Shut up, you feline floozy.

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: It's wasn't unusual for multiple actors to play one character on this show. The villains on the TV Batman were played by guest stars, not regular cast members. George Sanders, Otto Preminger, and Eli Wallach played the part at various times. They may simply have only wanted to play the part once or twice, or they were later tied up with other projects, making it necessary to cast someone else. Other characters, like Catwoman, were also played by more than one actress.
