It’s been a couple of weeks, I know. And it’s high time I do a new installment of Super Friends. Buuuut – it’s the holidays, and to really give it the attention it deserves (I can’t believe I just wrote that), I’m going to hold off one more week before we dive into another storyline.
So, this week it’s a quick trip through the safety segment.
Two kids race down a hill on their bikes. They stop and the girl says, “I WIN! Let’s do it again, this time with no hands!”
Batman and Robin drive up in the Batmobile. Off-road. They just pull up in their car on the freshly mowed grass like the world is their pavement. To teach a lesson about safety.
The kids then ask Batman and Robin if they want to watch them race down the hill using no hands, and Robin asks, “Hey, isn’t that dangerous?” Well, Robin, if you guys don’t know…
“The only thing showing off does is give you a chance to get hurt,” Batman condescends. The kids say they hadn’t thought about that and then Batman and Robin head out WAIT A SECOND WHAT THE HELL IS THIS!?
A fucking road appears out of nowhere to try and make Batman and Robin look less like the jackasses we all know they are.
And look! They obviously stole those children’s bikes, too. Sure, Batman, all in the name of safety, asshole.
If you would like to see these shenanigans for yourself, Season 2 is available on DVD.

The batmobile is at least a V-8, probably a 454 with blowers. Meaning that they just trashed a green area so that two kids just being kids, wouldn’t fall off their bikes and need some bactines and band aids…
let that roll around in your noggin for a minute or less.
Exactly. Then they went to a fast food restaurant to lecture people about hairnets. Important stuff for superheroes to address.
It’s at clever ploy to steal some bikes. Drive up under the pretence of being responsible adults, shame the children for their foolishness, and boom! The bikes are yours and the kids are too ashamed to even notice.
I’m pretty sure that’s how Bruce Wayne earned his millions.
Totally ran over the kids’ bikes when the road materialized. stupid Batmobile.
Well, now they’ll be safe?
Batman and Robin should really stop patrolling parks looking for unsupervised youth. It’s going to get them put on some kind of watch list.
Or more like they’re going to get more asterisks by their already-on-the-list names.
