Re: The Official Batman TAS Thread - Part 1
This and "Night of the Ninja" are the two episodes that show a young Bruce Wayne training.
Vincent Schiavelli, who voices Zatara, is one of only five actors from Batman: The Animated Series who also appeared in one of the live-action Batman movies—in his case, Batman Returns.
The spiked pit appears to be a tribute to a similar scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
Alfred asks whether Bruce last saw Zatanna 10 or 12 years ago, which Bruce seemingly confirms to be the latter or even longer. This gives something of a timeframe for certain events of Bruce's life.
At one point, Kane refers to Batman as "Detective". This may or may not be a reference to Ra's al Ghul, who always calls Batman "Detective" and is in this series voiced by David Warner, who uses an accent and manner very similar to Michael York.
This is the only episode with two directors, as Dan Riba took over after Dick Sebast's departure.
