Review: This is the only time you will be able to see Batman beat up on Gilligan and the Skipper from Gilligan's Island. As for the rest of the episode, it was okay, but not the greatest. Most of the time, you just wish Baby Doll would stop talking in her squeaky 'kid' voice and be serious. This was one of those cases that really could have been taken care of by the police. The only real good part was when Batman used the brilliant idea of finding Baby Doll in the amusement park. That was a great idea, and was worthy to the story.

The animation was the norm for The Adventure of Batman & Robin. Things were in proportion, although Baby Doll was, at times, a tiny bit larger, but nothing to complain about.
