Scooby Doo meets Batman and Robin (again),
in “The Caped Crusader Caper”. It’s another mystery while camping near Gotham city limits. It’s 8 O’clock, do you know where your nearest pizza parlor is? Never mind, if you’re Shaggy you have the luck of running into the likes of The Penguin and The Joker from the universe of Batman and Robin. These “master criminals” have kidnapped a dyslectic professor who unlocked the mysteries of flight. Break out your bat-cookies.

Unanswered questions of curiosity
Unusual, there is no mystery or conspiracy to unravel. The gang joins Batman and Robin on a search and rescue mission. From the beginning, we know everything we need about the episode and off we go. “The Caped Crusader Caper” suffers from a lack of direction and focus, even Batman and Robin are bores. The victim is either brilliant or a nincompoop, but we tire of him quickly as his butchering of the English language needs to be heard to be believed. Not a favorite episode. I recommend revisiting “The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair”.
