    Plot: The archvillains of The United Underworld – The Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler and The Penguin – combine forces to dispose of Batman and Robin as they launch their fantastic plot to control the entire world. From his submarine, Penguin and his cohorts hijack a yacht containing a superdehydrator, which can extract all moisture from humans and reduce them to particles of dust.

Batman and Robin track the villains in their Batboat and use Batcharge missles to force the sub to surface.

    Trivia: There are 13 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Originally planned as the pilot film for the _”Batman” (1966/II)_ TV series, the movie was instead produced between the shows first and second seasons. The producers took advantage of the larger budget to have a number of new Bat-gadgets constructed, such as the BatBoat.
    • Although Sterling Holloway is listed in the credits as Col. Terry, all his scenes were, in fact, cut from the film as released.
    • The BatBoat was built especially for the film by the Glastron boat company. In exchange for their cooperation, the producers agreed to hold the films world premiere in Austin, Texas, Glastrons headquarters.
