This is background information and production notes of the episode The Mechanic, from season one of Batman: The Animated Series.

Production Notes[]

  • The idea of Penguin taking control of the Batmobile was derived from the movie Batman Returns, as was the large duck that Penguin sends Arnold to his doom in.
  • This episode marks the only time on screen both Batman and Robin have an independent episode with Penguin.
  • The license plate Penguin rips in half refers to "Gotham—the Dark Deco State". "Dark Deco" was the term used by production crew to describe the show's art deco style.
  • In some end credits, Marva Cooper's voice is credited to Lynne Moody instead of Candy Brown. It's still uncertain if Marva's voice might have been redubbed by Moody for a different release.
  • According to the letter pages of The Batman Adventures 13; this episode was originally titled "The Man Who Built the Batmobile".
