Those were well-known private security companies back in the day (one is still around), so the names made literal sense for the guards. For the goons, the names underscored FF's compulsion to play all things false: He named his thieving thugs after protectors of property.
The False Face and Zodiac Crimes arcs were the only Batman episodes written by Stephen Kandel, who cranked out scripts for dozens of shows from the 1950s through 1990. According to his IMDB profile, Kandel is a Taurus.
I don't think it's a staple in the ear, at least on the Hardeman cowl in the third season it was a stitch.

Ah. Thanks for clearing that up.Quillpen Quirch wrote:Yes, "That Darn Catwoman" appeared on a Thursday night, following the Wednesday-night conclusion of the Zodiac Crimes three-parter. "Scat, Darn Catwoman" ran the following Wednesday, followed the next night by the first installment of the Penguin-Marsha three-parter.
Anybody know what they used for a base? Looks like a modified toy gun... When used by Catwoman's henchmen it didn't do anything, by the time the Joker got his hands on it, they had modified it so it could shoot paint, so maybe it was a water gun?
At the beginning of the Zodiac Crimes episode, Batman puts a bug detector (or maybe it was the mini fire extinguisher) behind his belt.
A second later, you can CLEARLY hear it hit the floor and roll around!
In Desmond Doomsday's narration of the first episode's conclusion, he refers to the altimeter tracking the balloon's ascent as an "alti-MEE-ter". In the opening moments of episode 2, Robin and Batman both say the name of the instrument correctly ("al-TIM-uh-ter"), but Batman butchers the name of the bird that eventually rescues him and Robin. The feathered savior is a nonsensically named variant of a real bird species, the nuthatch -- pronounced "nut hatch" -- but Batman calls it a "nu thatch." Twice.
As for our series, not sure if it was covered here, but Batman's Batradio falls off his belt when on the Batcopter ladder in the movie.
It also has “Short Island Sound written on it!
Wow. I’m glad for the blu ray discs and the pause button!
Penguin: Tell me, my heavenly hyacinth: When was the last time you had a good drink of water?
Venus: Drink of water? Oh, you can't get any water. Nothing comes out of the faucets but strawberry jelly. I guess that's how rich millionaires live.
Penguin: Then you're probably thirsty, eh? Champagne! [Rob Reiner carts in chilled Champagne and fills two glasses.] You'll have some Champagne my dear... [unintelligible cooing baby talk as Pengy pinches Venus's cheek]... Champagne, eh?
Venus: Oh I, I really don't think I should, Pengy.
Penguin: Why? Do you want to die of dehydrophalia?
Venus: What's that?
Penguin: Why that's the loss of precious bodily fluids due to a lack of, uh, liquid in the—in the tissues.
Venus: Sounds terrible!
Penguin: Drink up, my dear, drink up! ... [Satisfied Penguin quacks] ... Drink up my dear, save yourself from sin...
