Batman: The Animated Series

Heart of Ice - S1-E3

Stupidity: Ferris Boyle tries to cover up his sabotage of Victor Fries' experiment, but he opts to store the incriminating security tape of the event in a filing cabinet instead of simply destroying the footage.

Show generally

Stupidity: In many of the episodes, when Batman is captured by one of his many enemies such as Joker, Two-Face, the Mad Hatter, etc. and restrained, nobody even bothers to pull off his mask to reveal his secret identity.

Terror in the Sky - S1-E37

Stupidity: Batman should've noticed the pink pants the bat creature wore when it attacked him in the zoo thus showing it wasn't Kirk Langstrom. He's noticed things in other fights.

Suggested correction: Are you suggesting Kirk couldn't change his pants?

Well it'd seem ridiculous given his changes probably happen at any time like The Lizard's who also never changes pants.

So Kurt Conners and Kirk Langstrom both wear the same pants for the rest of their lives? They never change clothes when in human form?

It's Never Too Late - S1-E6

Stupidity: Very heroic of Michael to save his brother, but the way the scene plays out, there's no reason why he had to get on the railway tracks himself and shove him away taking a train to the knee rather than just grab his arm and pull him, which would have been much quicker. Note; he did not rush to him and tackle him, which could very well happen in the heat of the moment. He jumped on the tracks, grabbed him, turned around, and gave him a push. That's very awkward to look at and unnatural.

Two-Face (1) - S1-E17

Stupidity: It's amazing that Batman could sneak into Thorne and Dent's meeting, since his stealthy approach involved parking the Batmobile right next to the mobsters' car, in the yard of the factory in plain sight, coming in fast with tire screeches and all. (00:16:30)

P.O.V. - S1-E13

Stupidity: This is a meticulously planned sting with 2 million dollars in cash as bait, so naturally it is carried out with just 3 policemen (2 officers and a rookie), no supervision and two of the cops are nowhere near the scene until the last second, for reasons never specified.

Suggested correction: Clayface wasn't faking losing control of his abilities. He really was losing control. When Clayface saw all the characters he played over the years as Matt Hagen, he began turning into each of them involuntarily but, because there was too many of them, he became overwhelmed and couln't stop transforming. He even begs Batman to shut off the screens. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4W8Wp6SzdM.

Two-Face (1) - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: The pothole with the mud that Rupert Thorne's henchman kicks at Harvey Dent appears from nowhere. When the henchman is shown kicking the mud, the pothole is located between the police officer behind the henchman's right shoulder and Harvey's assistant Carlos on the henchman's left. However, in the previous shot, the ground shown between the police officer and Carlos contains no pothole. (00:04:35)
