Hey there,

Uh, correction: Batman: The Movie (The Adam West film based on the 1966 series) has been released on DVD. As of this writing, the original series has not been released due to it being tied up in negotiation between Time Warner (who owns DC Comics) and Fox (who produced the series).

[edit] Deleted?

I think this definitely deserves a page. There's too many references. LePorello / T / C 03:00, 19 March 2006 (UTC)Ooh, oh, um, nevermind. LePorello / T / C 03:01, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] a big one

I am (foolishly) watching Batman and Robin on tv right now, and I noticed a big parallel. The mask that the Bane character is wearing is almost exactly the same as Strongbad's mask. This cannot be a coincidence.


I don't think so. Bane's mask is a bit different, and besides, lots of masks have eye holes like that. -- Tom 02:20, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
But in the Dark Knight Rises, Bane sounds a lot like Strong Bad. This would be funny if it were on HR sites. In the theatre it's just a big fail. 18:48, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
Not really that much. He has a bit of a Caribbean accent, which is somewhat similar to Strong Bad's old Mexican accent, because the character is supposed to be from a fictional island in the Caribbean, but that's about as similar as their voices happen to be. --Jay (Talk) 20:04, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Bad Pennies

Email flag day — The Cheat's penny has the words "A Bad Penny" imprinted on it, which is what the Joker's henchmen were called in the Batman episode The Joker Goes to School.

Now, although this is true, the term "Bad Penny" is actually a common phrase heard in America (or so I hear.) I understand why the use of this phrase in Halloween Fairstival is a Batman reference (Strong Bad dresses up as The Joker and quotes a line from the same episode), but isn't it just possible that they might not be referencing Batman at all in flag day? – The Chort 13:31, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Joker School, Grisly Ghoul

Inspired by the DVD commentary of no loafing, I watched the Batman episode "The Joker Goes to School" (to see the Joker's No Loafing sign), which led me to the episode that follows: "He Meets His Match, The Grisly Ghoul". In these two episodes, we have a No Loafing sign, "bad pennies" (see flag day and Halloween Fairstival), "cheese it" (see The Reddest Radish and Donut Unto Others), "Hello, kiddies! A-meet the Joker!" (see Halloween Fairstival), and "Disko Tech" (a possible inspiration for Disco Tech). Most of these are already listed in this article, the possible Disco Tech reference was brought up on Talk:Disco Tech but that never went anywhere, and though I don't find anyone previously suggesting that TBC's use of "cheese it" may have been influenced by Batman, I say it must be so! And I also say that all HR fans reading this should watch these episodes in their entirety. Bottom line, can we call "cheese it" a Batman reference? OptimisticFool 02:46, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
