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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: When the Joker directs Gordon and O'Hara to look at the statue of Justice, they look at it from a front view. But when Joker comes out of the Police building where he left them frozen, it's from behind the statue, rather than in front.

Continuity mistake: After the Mad Hatter's spray turns Batman's cowl pink, Batman and Robin are shown in the Batmobile, headed back to the Batcave. The stock shot shows Batman wearing his regular blue cowl while inside the car. Once they get to the Batcave, Batman's cowl is pink again.

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.
