What Bat-Things Did you Learn?

I learned that rear-projected scenes in the 1940s were actually pretty well done.

I also learned that Robin was pretty much always useless.

I learned that planes in the 40's had weird rear rooms that you opened a door and had to step over the wall still as the door was hung over the floor.  Was that a bathroom or a storage room?

I am guessing that was a storage room and door was off the ground to stop package from sliding our of the room if the flight got rough.  Either that or they wanted to make peeing on the plane complicated.

I'm pretty sure back then bathrooms on the plane were the same as on trains where the pot just opened to a hole in the floor. ;)  I learned that one of Batman's powers is to re-write time itself in order to make his escape between the cliff-hanger of one episode and the opening of another.  Or as Kathy Bates in "Misery" put it, "He didn't get out of the cockadoodie plane!"

In episode 3 I fully expect him to escape the top of the train by turning off the rear projection, or by them splicing in a single shot of him climbing down a ladder even though the previous shot was him knocked to the ground in the middle of the gang.

I learned that back then they didn't try real hard to match the size of the plane set to the actual size of the plane.   
Seriously, the inside was at least twice as big as the outside...
