Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Batman is the 1966 movie spin-off of the popular TV show from that time. This is the campy and silly Batman and not the noir superhero-with-a-dark-side portrayed in recent decades. This movie has goofy fight scenes with plenty of comedic pratfalls, and viewers are briefly led to believe Batman has been blown up; he's quickly shown to have survived. The Penguin always has a cigarette, held in a cigarette holder. Overweight women are the target of a joke: They're too busy scarfing down vast quantities of food to notice the panic of those around them attempting to flee the restaurant. Batman goes on a date with a woman; they kiss, and the woman slips into a slinky robe.

Sexual Content

Batman goes on a date with a woman; they kiss, and the woman slips into a slinky robe.

Violence

Occasional cartoonish violence and comedic pratfalls. Fight scenes in which physical contact between the brawlers often is covered by the TV series' famous on-screen exclamations ("POW!"). At one point, Robin and the viewer are briefly led to think that Batman has been blown up; he's quickly shown to have survived. While hanging from a helicopter above the ocean, Batman is attacked by a clearly fake shark biting his thigh.
