Barbecued Batman? (2) - S2-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Minstrel and his henchmen race down the stairs, the sound pole rigging shadow is moving at the very top of the screen. (00:04:00)

Jean G

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

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

The Dead Ringers (2) - S2-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When Harry plots to replace Chandell, the polished grand piano behind him reflects the moving lights on some of the studio equipment. (00:15:30)

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

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

Visible crew/equipment: During the final egg fight, the microphone shadow puts in an appearance on the wall behind the bad guys. (00:21:50)

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)

Jean G

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

Factual error: Trapped in the overturned hourglass, Batman and Robin lie flat and begin furiously digging in the sand, making the hourglass roll out the door. But to cause such rapid movement, they'd need to be applying their weight against one of the glass sides (like a hamster in a ball). Just digging in the sand wouldn't get them anywhere, at least not that quickly. (00:04:15)

Jean G

Hot Off the Griddle (1) - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: During the fight in the museum, one of Catwoman's henchmen slams into the wall beside a window. The set wall buckles and caves in, leaving the bottom edge of the window bent and jutting out. A few shots later, though, both wall and window have repaired themselves. (00:14:00)

Jean G

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

Factual error: Tsk. After all his lectures to Robin about the importance of education, Batman should and would know better. On the chalk board, where he's written out Joker's message (dictated to him over the phone), the caped crusader mis-punctuates the phrase "a gargoyle's key" by leaving out the apostrophe. Definitely not a mistake that stickler-for-correctness Batman would make. (00:09:30)

Jean G

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

Scat, Darn Catwoman (2) - S2-E41

Audio problem: At the end, Catwoman falls from the roof into the water below. But we never hear a splash. (00:21:15)

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.
