Fourth position, closed.

Very good, dick.

You'll be doing multiple

double tours in no time.

Gosh, Bruce,

kids don't ballet dance.

I mean, I feel ridiculous

in these tights.

The discipline of ballet promotes

balance, flexibility and strength,

all useful things in our

never-ending fight against crime.

Gee Willikers, I never

thought of it that way.

Now, that's enough practice

for one night.

Gotham palace is on,

and even crime fighters need

mindless entertainment sometimes.

Gosh, yes!

It's my favorite show.

Welcome to everyone's

favorite variety show,

the Gotham palace.

And here's your host,

that international starlet

of stage and screen,

Miranda Monroe.

Thank you.

Thank you.

On tonight's show, we have

those singing sensations,

the mop tops with the mostest,

Hector and the ho daddies.

Those aren't the ho daddies.

No, it's that mocking mountebank

of malice, the joker.

Oh, sorry, kitties,

but the ho daddies have decided

to play a smaller venue,

the broom closet backstage.

Bruce, look!

It's that black-hearted bearer of a

billion bumbershoots, the penguin.

Careful, you

pre-pubescent pipsqueaks,

or I'll give you a taste

of my penguin umbrella.

And the prince of perverted

puzzles, the Riddler.

Riddle me this. What kind

of band doesn't play music?


A band of thieves.

And of course,

that dominatrix of deviltry...

Catwoman needs no introduction.

Holy unholy alliance.

Our greatest foes have reunited.

Quick, gang, we have to hold these

creepy crooks for the cops.

I do love a captive audience,

but we must be going.

Let us away, let us away.

It's the bat-signal, sir.

Yes, Alfred, no doubt the

commissioner is already calling.


Mercy alive.

Why, you'd think you were Batman

and Robin, rushing out like that.

We were just going fishing,

aunt Harriet.

At this hour?

Land's sake!

You two sure do fish a lot.

We find it's a great way

to relax

from the pressures of being a millionaire

playboy and his teenage ward.

Indeed. Now, if you'll

excuse us, aunt Harriet.

Can you believe the lengths those

two go to keep their little secret?

- Secret, ma'am?

- Why, Alfred!

You really don't see it?

No, I do not.

Now, if you'll excuse me,

I believe the upstairs

doorknobs need polishing.

Good day, madam.

No need to explain,


We saw the whole sordid affair.

Those criminals

will be brought to justice,

or I'll know the reason why.

We're on our way.

Hurry, caped crusader.

Whoever you may be

under that cowl of yours,

you paladin of virtue,

you're our only hope.

To the Batcave.

"Poor people have it, rich people

need it, if you eat it, you die."

- What is it?

- Nothing.

I can't come up

with anything either, Batman.

No, chief, the answer

is "nothing."

How can "nothing" be a clue,

when it's not even a thing?

In this case, "nothing"

is certainly something.

- Robin?

- Let's see...

Zero. Zilch.

Goose egg.


Farmer Jones delivered

a shipment

of his prizewinning goose eggs

to the local market

just last week.

They're after eggs?

It's not what was delivered,

commissioner, rather when.

Last Tuesday, which was also the

night of the total lunar eclipse.

You see, it's really

quite simple.

The atomic energy laboratory, headed

by our old friend, professor Nichols,

just opened a new wing dedicated to

the science of total lunar eclipses.

And I'll bet my cowl

the laboratory is where

those felonious fiends

are going to strike next.

Of course, how could

I not see it myself?
