BTAS Episode: Zatanna

  • 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.
