Synopsis[]

"Rackety-Rax Racket"[]

Watching college students pull zany initiation stunts for their fraternities gives The Joker unholy inspiration for his next crime wave; as he judges his jewelry room is less than half-filled and must be re-stocked.

The Joker captures Batman and when Robin wanders to the scene of the abduction; the Joker confronts him with hope of Batman's release if Robin performs humiliating public stunts.

"There's one thing I'd enjoy more than killing The Batman,and that's to make you both look ridiculous!"


Robin has to shine shoes cheap; and sell winter clothing on the street in the middle of summer.These tasks result in jewelry dealers being fingered and robbed because of luminous powder applied to t heir shoes. And a merchant who bought the winter clothes to hold until winter is next to a jewelry store---a hidden bomb goes off and makes an entry to the jewels.


Batman has been a fairly docile captive, but when he hears The Joker announce a plan to arson a major department store so he can loot the jewelry department; he escapes as soon as The Joker leaves him alone. The department store robbery is prevented, and The Joker is returned to custody; a bit worse for wear.
