Kamandi and Dr. Canus travel from the future to the present day to find what they need to defeat the mutant Misfit, but the mutant and his Serv-Teks follow them through the time portal to Gotham City. Batman arrives to help his friends, and Kamandi explains that they need the fabled 5-5 module to power their jamming device. The Caped Crusader has no idea what that is and takes on the robots. Dr. Canus goes to recruit backup from the local animals, but finds them less than communicative. Meanwhile, Misfit mentally blasts Batman and Kamandi into an electronics store, and Kamandi finds the 5-5 module: double-a batteries. While Canus tries to recruit pigeons, Kamandi tosses him the batteries and the canine hero puts them into their jamming device: a boom box. The sound waves blow up the robots and disrupt Misfit's mental communication. Batman tells them to come back any time, but Dr. Canus isn't thrilled at how animals are kept in captivity...

Episode Quotes
Kamandi: Sorry, Batman. We risked the Misfit following us through the wormhole, because our only hope of defeating him was found in your time.
Batman: No apologies necessary, Kamandi. The Portal of Justice is always open to you and Dr. Canus.

Kamandi: Eureka! The 5-5 modules.
Batman: You mean a pack of double-a batteries?
Kamandi: Behold the awesome energy!

Batman: Misfit, your mental maelstrom is over.

Dr. Sivana: Another flawlessly executed heist, tanks to the superior intellect of me, Dr. Sivana!
Batman: And another ten years behind bars, you fiendish physicist.
Dr. Sivana: Batboob. Have a face full of science, you big lummox!

Batman: A smart man would have learned his lesson a long time ago, Sivana.
Dr. Sivana: You're right, Batman. If I were a smart man, I would have realized I could never defeat you alone. Yes, a smart man would have gotten help. Oh, wait, I am a smart man. And I did.

Captain Marvel: Let the Marvel Family show you how it's done.
Dr. Sivana: Well, if it isn't the Big Red Cheese and his two Gorgonzola. Turn 'em into Swiss!

10 year old Batman: I've battled criminal scum, homicidal maniacs, and alien despots. But no one's ever done anything as horrible as this to me before.
Billy Batson: Don't worry, Batman. We'll figure out a way to stop the deaging process.
10 year old Batman: Deaging process? I'm talking about this! (points at a pimple)

10 year old Batman: Recess is over, you mean old meanie. You've just earned yourself five to ten minutes of hard time, in the corner of the room.
Dr. Sivana: Batboob, you're half the man you used to be.
Captain Marvel Jr.: He may be small, but ours is a heroic bond that can't be broken.
10 year old Batman: Yeah! BFFs forever! Except for her. She has cooties.
Mary Marvel: Hmmph.

Toddler Batman: You were behind it all along. You squirmed into the Marvels' brains and made them fight. Bad caterpillar. Bad!
Mr. Mind: Yes, well, as much as I hate to pull myself away from this scintillating battle of wits, I do have a universe to conquer.

The Lone Ranger would inevitably yell "Hi-yo Silver, away!" at the end of most episodes of his radio and TV series.

Dr. Sivana: Apparently that's too much to expect from this confederacy of dunce-caps.
