"One of the Most Perfect Frame-Ups"Edit
Several robberies occur in Gotham. Batman and Robin try to catch the thieves, learning that a squat little man called the Penguin is the ringleader. Penguin however frames Batman for stealing a jade idol, because Penguin is the real owner. The police arrest Batman for the crime; then Penguin breaks out the Caped Crusader to make him look guilty. Batman summons Robin and together they break-up Penguin’s gang and exonerate themselves. Penguin, however, escapes.
