Surf's Up! Joker's Under! - S3-E10

Plot hole: An amazingly precognizant Dick Grayson is already wearing his surfing togs before Commissioner Gordon calls to say that Joker has invaded the surfing community.

A Horse of Another Color (2) - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: Ethel Merman just can't keep a straight face amidst Batman's campy silliness. Here and in the previous episode, she can be seen cracking up in several of her scenes with Burgess Meredith.

Enter Batgirl, Exit Penguin - S3-E1

Plot hole: When he abducts Alfred, believing him to be a minister, Penguin suffers a peculiar memory lapse. He's encountered Alfred twice before in previous episodes, even kidnapped him once before (knowing full well that he was Bruce Wayne's butler). Yet here, he fails to recognize Alfred at all.

A Horse of Another Color (2) - S3-E5

Visible crew/equipment: The stunt rider doubling Penguin in the horse race is pretty easy to spot. He's younger and thinner (despite an obviously padded costume), and his nose is about two inches shorter.

I'll Be a Mummy's Uncle - S3-E23

Plot hole: After the rock falls on King Tut at the end giving him amnesia, Batman explains how the rock fell. He says Tut raised his voice three decibels above high C. Decibels are a measure of volume, while pitch is a measure of frequency: the two are not directly related. This mistake was done in other episodes of Batman also, such as when Joan Collins played the villain.

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.

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

Nora Clavicle and the Ladies' Crime Club - S3-E19

Revealing mistake: Not only does Batman's solo flute play two music tracks at once, it also keeps on playing after he's taken it out of his mouth.

How to Hatch a Dinosaur (2) - S3-E9

Factual error: Gotham City's museum should brush up on its paleontology. Their sign claims the neosaurus egg is 40 million years old. A) Neosaurus lived in the early Permian period, 290 million years ago. And B) All dinosaurs were rendered extinct 65 million years ago, most likely by an asteroid strike. So 40 million years ago, there were no dinosaurs on Earth.

The Foggiest Notion (2) - S3-E12

Factual error: The British curator from whom Lord Ffogg steals a collection of artifacts needs to go back to school (or someone in Batman's prop dept. does). While most of the signs are correctly spelled and punctuated ("Duchess of Desborough's Diamonds," "Her Majesty's Priceless Snuffboxes," etc.), the one marked "Lady Easterlands Jeweled Easter Eggs" is missing its requisite possessive apostrophe. (The closed captioner noticed, though, and corrected the mistake there).

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

The Joker's Flying Saucer - S3-E24

Character mistake: Vertigris tells Joker he planted a bomb in the Batmobile while it was parked in front of City Hall/Police HQ. Only in this instance, it wasn't. It was parked in the alley out back, the better to hide his bomb-planting from public view, so it's strange that he'd forget this.

00:08:15

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

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

Enter Batgirl, Exit Penguin - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: The panel that Batgirl makes her entrance through can be plainly seen as a prop mounted on top of the set of stairs she comes down.

Surf's Up! Joker's Under! - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: When the Dynamic Duo are locked in the board blanks, you see the jets where the smoke and flame come out.

Surf's Up! Joker's Under! - S3-E10

Audio problem: As Batman and Robin bust through the window, you hear glass breaking, but there's no evidence of glass anywhere.

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 Funny Feline Felonies (1) - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Catwoman shoots the bullet into Commissioner Gordon's office, about a quarter-inch of the bullet remains exposed. However, when Batman goes to pull it from the wall, about four times as much of the bullet is now exposed.

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.

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.
