Batman Cast

Holy Prison Revolts! Recalling a comment made by the prison trustee concerning the Batmobile's speed, Batman becomes suspicious; he stops the vehicle and locates the bomb, and then heads back to Gotham State Penitentiary with Robin to investigate. But when the Dynamic Duo check up on Ma Parker and her family, the paid-off prison staff manage to convince them that all is well. Once the crime fighters have gone, Ma convenes a meeting of the inmates and reveals her plan to use the prison as a hideout while the Caped Crusader and Boy Wonder unwittingly increase their numbers by sending more apprehended villains to jail. Ma then stages an armed car robbery and blows open the doors using dynamite, but the explosion triggers the Batseismograph, and alerts Batman and his chum, who speed off to the scene of the crime. Ma and her felonious family make off with the loot, but Batman manages to grab a scrap of cloth from a one of the fleeing crook’s clothes; recognising it to be from prison clothing, the Caped Crusader and his trusty chum return to the Penitentiary, only to be captured by Ma and her gang and strapped into electric chairs…
