Batman:The Animated Series Wiki

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

  • This is the first episode where Batman is shown to be captured on screen, albeit out of costume. The previous episode, "P.O.V.", shows him captured, but it is strongly implied that it was part of his plan.
  • Alfred makes a brief reference to Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who claimed what is now San Diego for Spain.
  • This is the first episode to feature Alfred away from Wayne Manor.
  • The Batwing's hazardous landing in the canyon is inconsistent with other episodes showing it to be capable of hovering and descending in a straight vertical line. However, this may be due to Alfred's lack of proficiency in piloting/commanding the vehicle, as well as his demanding the Batwing land now so as not to stray from Bruce.
  • Biggis' huge appetite, physique, and slobbering voice are very reminiscent of Mr.Creosote from Monty Python and the Meaning of Life.
  • One of Biggis' men is named Paur, a reference to series writer/director Frank Paur.


  • When Bruce escapes from the labor camp and is being chased by the men with dogs, the perspective of his pursuers is poorly drawn, and at one point it looks like the men and dogs are all different sizes (two smaller men and one giant man).
