Batman:The Animated Series Wiki

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

  • En route to the spa, Alfred grumbles, "I've been Shanghaied." "Shanghaied" was a slang expression used in the United States and Great Britain for being recruited into the navy by force or trickery, and then being forced to continue serving.
  • Ivy's aliases are something of a giveaway: in Greek Mythology, Daphne was a nymph who was turned into a laurel tree, and Demeter is the goddess of grain and the harvest. Batman even mentions the latter.
  • Alfred sardonically refers to Ivy as "Joan of Bark", a spoof on Joan of Arc, the medieval French warrior and later Catholic saint.
  • Alfred's behavior after ingesting the Demetrite is a clue to its plant-transformative effects; in particular, the way sunlight restores his strength is indicative of photosynthesis, the process by which chlorophyll-bearing plants produce nourishment.
  • Maggie's roadster has a right-handed driver's seat, implying that it was imported from Great Britain.
  • This is one of the few times that Bruce Wayne goes upstairs into Wayne Manor while still in the Batsuit.


  • When Maggie drives her car down a steep hill on the way to the spa, she is driving on the left side of the road; when she reappears at the bottom, she is on the right.
  • When Ivy makes her welcome speech as Dr. Demeter, Lily's hair is miscolored brown.
