Batman:The Animated Series Wiki

This is general information about production inconsistences, mistakes and external references related to the episode I've Got Batman in My Basement from season one of Batman: The Animated Series.

  • The newspaper headline refers to Sherman and Roberta as "Pinkertons", after the detective agency in the United States named after its founder, Allan Pinkerton.
  • Many fans do not like the episode for its alleged cuteness and poor script.
  • Sherman mentions that his basement is nothing like the Batcave, however, there is no reason for anyone in the general public to even know a Batcave exists.


  • When Sherman and Roberta are snooping around in the factory, Sherman accidentally touches a button to activate a conveyor belt. However, the button he touched was clearly marked "Off" rather than "On".
  • When Sherman is punching buttons in the Batmobile, some of the weaponry deployed seems uncharacteristically lethal for Batman, including a bank of missiles.
  • When Penguin picks up his umbrella after Raven is defeated, a cell error makes it look as if there are two umbrellas.
  • When Sherman is hanging up the newspaper clippings, in the closeup shot, the clippings overlap each other on the wall, but, in the next shot, there is a space in between them.
