Animated World of DC Comics: The Caped Crusader Caper (New Scooby-Doo Movies, 1972)

"The Caped Crusader Caper" is the 2nd meeting between Scooby-Doo and Batman, airing just before Christmas 1972.

Mystery Inc. and the Dynamic Duo team up again to rescue absent minded Professor Flakey (Don Messick) from The Joker (Larry Storch) and The Penguin, who seem to have escaped since their last appearance. Unfortunately, since anyone that tries to post the complete episode gets it taken down due to WB enforcing copyrights, all we have is this 5 minute plus sample.



As we've documented, it would be nearly 40 years before the two teams would meet again, this time on Batman: The Brave & The Bold, with Weird Al Yankovic thrown in for good measure, and just two years ago, they met in the pages of Scooby-Doo Team-Up, with the gang meeting two different versions of Robin (The Teen Titans Go! edition appeared in issue 4, while the one the gang knows was in issues 1-3 & 6).

Rating: B.

Still a cheesy fun part of the Scoobyverse!

Batman, The Brave & The Bold got that Bite Mite tribute to this episode down perfectly!

They could've done the tribute without Bat-Mite, to tell you the truth.

FWIW, Scooby & the gang make another trip to Gotham City in Scooby-Doo Team Up #12, from DC, in September, guest-starring Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, & Batgirl.
