Over the years, hundreds of Batman action figures, die-cast models, and other miscellaneous items have reserved the store shelves.

Several low-budget, unauthorized Batman movies have been made, including the short film Batman Dracula (1964) by Andy Warhol; the full-length Batman Fights Dracula (1967) made in the Philippines; and a second full-length Filipino movie called Alyas Batman en Robin (1993).

Batman parodies and references

It should be noted this list is far from exhaustive, a character that's existed continuously for nearly 70 years in many media will become part of the cultural landscape. References to images like the Bat Signal and references to phrases from the 1960s TV series (particularly "To the Batmobile!" and "Holy something, Batman!") are innumerable:

  • Bullcrank.com features an animated short called Batman's Gonna Get Shot in the Face which is reminiscent of a VH1 Behind the Music documentary.
  • Blue Falcon and Dynomutt from Dynomutt, Dog Wonder parody Batman and Robin.
  • The Batfink cartoon program which air around the time of the television show.
  • Knight Watchman (based on Batman) and Galahad the Kid Whiz (based on Robin) are part of Big Bang Comics' recreation of the golden age and silver age of comics.
  • Midnighter from Stormwatch and The Authority is cast in the Batman mold, but with superpowers and in a homosexual relationship with Apollo, a Superman analogue.
  • In Alan Moore's Supreme, Professor Night and his sidekick Twilight, the Girl Marvel homage Batman and Robin.
  • In the Disney comics, Donald Duck has a superheroic alter-ego called Paperinik, that has an utility belt, well-equipped car and a lot of gadgets, all inspired by Batman. Other Batman parodies are Fethry Duck's Red Bat and Jose Carioca's Green Bat.
  • An episode of the BBC comedy Only Fools and Horses sees main characters Del-Boy and Rodney dress as Batman and Robin to attend an evening ball. They also subsequently save a woman being mugged.
  • The Simpsons have made numerous references to Batman: Bartman, Radioactive Man and Fall Out Boy[1], Adam West driving a defective Batmobile[2], Simpsonmobile[3].
  • The Tick's Die Fledermaus (German for "The Bat") is a Batman parody, with a smooth-talking, but craven personality substituted for that of Batman. In Fox's live action adaptation of The Tick, a similar character named "Batmanuel" is depicted as a phony Latin lover.
  • Filmmaker Kevin Smith's character of Silent Bob spoofed Batman in his films Mallrats and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, even going so far as to don a cape and pointed helmet. Smith continued his Batman references in his 2004 film Jersey Girl, wherein Ben Affleck's character referred to the construction vehicle he drove as the "Batmobile."
  • There are five versions of Nighthawk from four different dimensions in the Marvel Universe, all homages to Batman.
  • Batman makes an appearance in the flash animation cartoon "The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny", in which he throws a Bat-Grenade at Godzilla, runs over Shaquille O'Neil and Aaron Carter in the Batmobile, is shot by Abraham Lincoln and steals Indiana Jones' gun, shooting it at Godzilla, missing, with Jackie Chan deflecting it with his fist. In the end, he is killed by Chuck Norris.
  • Darkwing Duck has various references to Batman. Several of his enemies resemble Batman's villains, much of Darkwing's gadgets resemble Batman's, and he has an alter-ego similar to Bruce Wayne.
  • The Children's BBC series Ratman featured Roland Rat as a Batman inspired hero, with Kevin the Gerbil as his sidekick, Pink Bucket Man. Roland Rat had already pastiched Batman's gadgets with the Ratmobile and Ratcave.
  • In a few episodes of Histeria!, the show's depiction of Leonardo da Vinci dresses up as a superhero named Renaissance Man, with a theme song based off of that of the 1960s Batman series and Loud Kiddington (dressed as Robin) as his sidekick.
  • Image Comics have several pastiches of Batman such as:
  • Marvel Comics, in their Not Brand Echh! parody series, referred to the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder as Gnat-man and Rotten.
  • Astro City contains the Confessor and Altar Boy, a riff on Batman and Robin.
  • Powers by Brian Michael Bendis introduced the Red Hawk and Wing, a play off of Batman and Robin. Wing is a homosexual (a reference to the accusations of Batman and Robin being gay) who, after making a pass at the Red Hawk, is beaten half to death and fired. Red Hawk is a sexual deviant who has alienated his partners in Unity (a Justice League analogue) and is killed by a crazed Super-Shock, a Superman analogue.
  • Ultimate Adventures had Hawk-Owl, a Batman archetype, complete with secret lair ("the Nest") and crime-fighting gadgets. Unlike Bruce Wayne, he's a socially inept middle-aged billionaire with a rather dangerous and expensive hobby who also lacks the traumatic murder experience of his DC counterpart, making him less 'severe' in some respects.
  • Batman is often referenced in the flash series Homestar Runner.
  • Rat Pfink and Boo Boo, the title characters of Ray Dennis Steckler's 1966 movie, are rough parodies of the 1960s television Batman and Robin.
  • Spongebob Squarepants's favorite heroes are Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy; the characters are a reference to Aquaman and mock the current perception of the 1960s Batman television program, including the theme of washed-out stars.
  • Larry Boy in VeggieTales.
  • Batman is a recurring "straight man" in the comedy routines of David Willis' Shortpacked!.
  • The music video to Shakira's Objection (Tango) had a Batman parody called Packageman who assisted Zuperman (Superman parody) into beating up Shakira's cheating boyfriend.
  • In Robot Chicken's Real World: Metropolis (a parody which has several super-heroes living in one house), the Batman uses the Bat-signal to get drunk at bars and get himself out of bad situations.
  • Mad Magazine has parodied Batman numerous times, the first being a comic story titled "Batboy and Rubin", where Batman is depicted as a surly midget who, at the story's end, reveals that he is actually a vampire. (Apparently, this may have been the inspiration for Bat-Mite.) Since then, Mad has featured numerous parodies of Batman's media productions, such as the shows and movies.
  • In the 1990 movie Die Hard 2, an airport official suggests setting up huge searchlights to signal for help. In response, another retaliates "Where do we get those giant lights from? Batman!?", referencing the Bat-Signal.
  • In "Some Assembly Required", an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Buffy summons one of her sidekicks to a secret meeting by saying, "Sorry to interrupt, Willow, but it's the Bat-signal."
  • In "Tiny Toon Adventures", Plucky Duck becomes Batduck, and would again don the Batduck costume in his own show "The Plucky Duck Show". In the first parody, Hamton takes on the sidekick role as Decoy, the Pig Hostage. This is a direct reference of course to Robin, wearing the yellow cape, and bright orange outfit, except Hamton's costume, has white circles forming a target on his belly. Also in this version, Elmyra as Alfyra the maid, in reference to Alfred.
  • In the children's show Arthur. Arthur and Buster watch a show called "Dark Bunny" in which a rich anthropomorphic rabbit dons a black and grey costume similar to Batman's and fights crime at night in a crime ridden fictional city.
  • In the second "Tiny Toons" parody from "The Plucky Duck Show: The Return of Batduck", Plucky becomes Batduck again out of jealousy that (from Buster's statement from the newspaper), "Tim Burton's directing another Batman movie", and Babs chiming in to say "Michael Keaton's perfect for it." With this news, Plucky storms to the Warner Bros. studio lot, to face Tim Burton to "get a screen test" to become Batman. While this is essentially a parody, it is more closely related to the real Batman movies from Tim Burton, because of the animation of Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, who fends off Plucky's romantic advances, as well as the infamous foiled attempt by Sean Young to get Tim Burton to hire her as Catwoman on The Joan Rivers Show.
  • A scene in the video for Eminem's Without Me shows Eminem walking vertically up a building dressed like a parody of the Robin character. The Batmobile is a black Lamborghini. Dr Dre symbolizes Batman.
  • In The Fairly Oddparents, a few episodes feature a parody of Batman, Catman.
  • Batman is referenced twice in [Seinfeld]. In one episode, George explains how the only way he would be able to leave his girlfriend's apartment would be to tell her, "I am in fact Batman, and I'm sorry, I just saw the Bat-signal." In another episode, George refers to Jerry's girlfriend as a "Two Face," to which Jerry replies, "Like the Batman villain?"
