Joker's Utility Belt and it's contents as seen in Batman #73

Tired of Batman and Robin foiling his plans and escaping death with their utility belts, he constructs one of his own with weapons and devices disguised as practical jokes. It contained the following:

  • Hand Buzzer
  • Snake Pellets - Tiny pills that turn into trick snakes when exposed to heat.
  • Sneezing Powder Capsules
  • Itching Powder Capsules
  • Water squirting Police Badge with bulb and hose
  • False Cigarette Pack with Jumping Jack Mechanism
  • Exploding Cigarettes
  • Eyepiece - A small circular object that leaves the victim with a black eye.
  • Mexican Jumping Beans - Jumping beans that are used as a distraction.
  • Flower Pellets - Pills that burst into large flowers
  • Playing Cards
  • Small Cork - A ordinary cork filled with paralysing gas.

It also had Joker faced Jack-in-the boxes and roll out flags to mock the Dynamic Duo.

With his belt, the Clown Prince of Crime began terrorising Gotham City and proved to be a challenge to the Dynamic Duo, especially after Joker slipped a replica of his own on Batman during the struggle as a distraction while he made his escape.

Eventually the Dynamic Duo were able to foil Joker's schemes especially after he attempted to steal the Gotham steamship and kill them, so they used his own devices against him and his men, leading to his capture.

"That cursed utility belt again! I swear by all that's funny, I shall never be foiled by that unconstitutional device again!"

The Joker's belt on the television show

The utility belt appeared in the two part episode The Joker Is Wild/Batman Is Riled and was similar to the original comic book story except you never saw all the contents of the belt except for a joy buzzer, smoke bomb, trick streamers and the cork filled with paralysing gas.

The Dynamic Duo, knowing about the gas cork took a Universal Drug Antidote Pill to counteract the gas before the Clown Prince of Crime took them back to his hideout to behead them. Joker was astonished as there was enough gas to keep people unconscious for hours and was fought and captured by the Caped Crusaders.
