Batman: The Animated Series

Two-Face (1) - S1-E17

Trivia: Harvey Dent's demanding of a mirror to see his scarred visage at his doctor's reluctance is very similar to the Joker demanding a mirror from his surgeon in the 1989 "Batman" film. (00:20:30)

On Leather Wings - S1-E2

Trivia: When Batman knocks Montoya out with the gas capsule, she's reading a fictional book called "P.S. Your Dog is Gone.", probably a title meant to spoof "P.S. Your Cat is Dead", which is quite the mature novel. (00:06:40)

Trivia: The character Harley Quinn was actually created for this series. She prove so popular, she was later integrated into the comics, and has also appeared in live-action feature films like "Suicide Squad" and "Birds of Prey."

Trivia: The series was animated on darker (typically black) paper as opposed to standard white paper. This helped aid in the show's aesthetic, and also helped save time when animating nighttime sequences, since they wouldn't have to paint the entire background black.

Trivia: Voice recording sessions were all done ensemble, with the cast together in the same room. In order to generate the manic energy required to play the Joker, Mark Hamill was the only actor permitted to perform his lines standing up.

Heart of Ice - S1-E3

Other mistake: When Batman is watching the security footage of Victor Fries' accident, at first Fries is addressing the camera directly which follows him and pans according to his movements and Ferris Boyle interrupting him, which would suggest a second person was in the room with a handheld camera. But after Ferris Boyle enters the room and orders Fries' experiment terminated, there are several cuts from various angles in the room suggesting surveillance cameras. The surveillance style footage also often conveniently cuts to the face of whichever person happens to be speaking or will cut to a certain angle in order to put emphasis on the action, all of which would require multiple mounted cameras and purposeful editing by either Boyle or one of his subordinates, which would be completely illogical since they don't want anyone to see the footage in the first place.
