The Gotham City Police Department have an unusual criminal on their hands.  For three years in a row, the April Fool's Bandit has been robbing banks of exactly $100,000, leaving behind millions more in the vault.  The identity of this mysterious bandit is unknown and Commissioner Gordon has called in Batman and Robin to investigate.


Joining John to discover the identity of this mysterious bandit (if the title of the episode didn't tip you off) is Mighty Movie Podcast's host Dan Persons.

The fifth episode features our first villainess, Zelda the Great.  But was she really a villainess?  In the comics, the magician was a man, but the producers changed it.  Note this is the first episode taken from Detective Comics (#346).
