  • Joker, Penguin, Scarecrow, Riddler, and Two-Face are all Batman villains from DC Comics while Black Manta is an Aquaman villain.
  • This sketch is a parody of the film The Shawshank Redemption.
  • Joker "fools the sodomites" by using a classic carnival balloon race game modeled after his face.
  • Batman claims that the sewer line smells like Batman Forever, notorious among the Batman films as being one of the worst, alongside Batman and Robin, which was also directed by Joel Schumacher.
  • Joker refers to The Green Mile, a film with the same writers and director as Shawshank.
  • Black Manta's "trouble with math" refers to how Red (from Shawshank) thinks that 500 yards is "just shy of 1/2 a mile", when it's actually less than a 1/3.

Trivia / Info:

  • Mark Hamill reprises his role of Joker from Batman: The Animated Series and other projects.

Goofs / Nitpicks:

  • The toilet flush handle is on the wall instead of the toilet.
  • Despite being an Aquaman villain, Black Manta is among the prisoners in Arkham Asylum, which consists of Batman villains. The most probable reasons are because he is also a DC villain, and also because he is black, in order to fill the role of Morgan Freeman's character in "Shawshank" in the parody.
