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

Production Notes[]

  • Many elements from this episode like the virutal reality world and the technology used by The Riddler such as the helmet to create the virtual world, seem to have been inspired by the trilogy of stories from Detective Comics #635, #636 and #637; written by Louise Simonson in 1991.
  • Writer Robert N. Skir has stated that the Riddler's defeat on this episode by having his mind trapped was the most fitting punishment for a character like him. Curiously, the film Batman Forever used a similar situation by having Riddler's mind overloaded with information. The film is also noted for using a similar numeric puzzle to leave clues, as featured in this episode.
