SynopsisEdit

"Raid of the Rocketeers!"Edit

When Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson are invited to a rocket launch by Wayne's old college chum Professor Nelson, they witness the rockets theft by a group of backpack wearing crooks known as the Rocketeers. Changing to Batman and Robin, the dynamic duo foil the Rocketeers and their leaders plot to use missiles in order to blackmail Gotham City into paying over a large sum of money.

"The Loan Shark's Hidden Hoard!"Edit

Two small time losers named Weepy and Rosy decide to make it rich by betting on horses, however in order to raise their capital, the two get a loan out from loan shark Sharkey Smiles. When they lose the bet and owe Smiles 2 million plus 100% interest, the two attempt to steal a secret stash of money that they have spied from the apartment across the street. This attempt gets them involved with Batman and Robin who not only bust Weepy and Rosy, but Sharkey and his cronies as well. At the end of the whole episode Weepy and Rosy realize (a little too late) that crime does not pay.
