Story by Peter Rabe
Holy Forgeries! When counterfeit money is discovered at Gotham City Bank, Commissioner Gordon summons Batman and Robin to help investigate. Learning that Gordon and Chief O'Hara are being driven bonkers by disembodied maniacal laughter, the Dynamic Duo discover that the Joker has planted a tiny loudspeaker on Commissioner Gordon's cufflinks. Suspecting that the Clown Prince of Crime is behind the fake money, the Caped Crusader and Boy Wonder speed off to the bank, where they find that the chief teller has been replaced by one Mr. Glee - who is really a robot controlled by the Joker. Batman and his chum deactivate the android and then take him back to the Batcave for study; meanwhile, the Joker and his moll, Josie, use the robot's built-in homing device to determine the location of the Batcave, and they head off in the Jokemobile to surprise the Dynamic Duo. Luckily, Batman has already anticipated this, and he uses a tracking signal Batdeflector to send the villains to a fake Batcave; then, having traced the villains to their hideout at the offices of Penthouse Comic-Book Publishers, the Caped Crusader and his trusty chum decide to set a trap…
