Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader is an animated feature film based on the original 1960s series.

It was created as a celebration of the show's 50th anniversary.


Batman and Robin are once again trying to foil the four arch-criminals, The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler and Catwoman, but things go awry when Batman is drugged with a substance that makes him evil and creates several clones of himself to take over Gotham City.
