Batman:The Animated Series Wiki

This is general information about production inconsistences, mistakes and external references related to the episode Appointment in Crime Alley from season one of Batman: The Animated Series.

  • There are a couple of references to classic Batman creators from the comic books as street names on this episode. These include Bill Finger and John Broome.
  • When Batman confronts Crocker and Nitro, they are getting into a truck that has: "J. Olsen and Sons, Photography Equip, Discount Prices" written on it. This is obviously a reference to Jimmy Olsen of the Superman comics who is a photographer for the Daily Planet.
  • In a scene showing the mail boxes for Leslie's Building, residents are shown to be Haven Alexander, Nicole Pouliot (misspelled Puliot), Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski.
  • A scene in which Batman sets the shields on the Batmobile is a nod to the Tim Burton movie Batman Returns.
  • When Bruce says "Roland Daggett's up to something, Alfred?", Alfred replies "That almost goes without saying, doesn't it sir?" When Lucius Fox asks Bruce if he thinks Daggett's up to something in "Cat Scratch Fever", Bruce replies "That goes without saying, doesn't it?"
  • Salvo Smith from "The Forgotten" can be seen in the group of Park Row residents protesting redevelopment.
  • When Leslie stops Batman from chasing Daggett when he left at the end, she says to him, "Daggett can't escape the law forever", which foreshadows Daggett's eventual arrest in "Batgirl Returns".


  • The gag used to gag Leslie is white, yet, when Batman is holding it after removing it, it is yellow.
  • When Batman says to Daggett, "I defused the bomb at the hotel", his mouth doesn't move.
