Another Favorite from the SurfWatch Past: Channel Surfing with Jimbo the Cart Boy - Surf's Up, Joker's Under

Growing up as a kid, I used to race home after school to watch the old episodes of Batman, and one of my all time favorite episodes was “Surf's Up! Joker's Under!”.  Leave it to The Joker to hatch a diabolical plan to rule the surf beach and all the surfers, then Gotham City, then the World,


To get the plan in motion, Joker and hot surfer babe, Undine, kidnap local champ, Skip Parker, and use a device called the Surfing Experience & Ability Transferometer & Vigor Reverser to suck all the surf knowledge and ability out of Skip’s head. Soon, Batman and Robin show up at Joker’s hideout and are quickly immobilized with sea urchin spines and then turned into human surfboards by Joker’s goons.

In this first clip, Batman catches up later with The Joker at the beach and challenges him to a surf contest to thwart The Jokers scheme. You gotta love the baggies over the costumes and WATCH OUT FOR SHARKS BATMAN!

Kowabunga! Joker wins, even after Dick Grayson’s failed attempt to corrupt the judges! In this next clip, it’s time for Batman, Robin and Bat Girl to give Joker the @$$ beating he deserves for cheating at the surf contest!



Batman wins! And a dejected Clown Price of Crime is hauled off to jail. Gothem City Beach is safe once again!

Did you know??? The Batman series was on such a skimpy production budget that it used clips from the movie The Endless Summer in the opening scene.

Look at the related videos in YouTube to see the "Surf's Up! Joker's Under!" episode in its entirety, it’s hilarious and worth a peak. Till next time, keep your Bat Shark Repellant handy in your baggies or bikini bottoms, and remember to SURF SAFE!

Only Batman can make grey tights, yellow boardies with white hibiscus and a purple cape fashionable.
