Fun Fact of the Week #272
When you watched "What a Night, for a Dark Knight!" from Guess Who, did you think it was really stupid how they had Alfred Pennyworth be Daphne's uncle? So did I, at first, but this was actually an incredibly clever reference on the writers' part.
In the 1970 version of the Batman DC Comics, Alfred actually did have a niece named Daphne. As you can see, the panel in which this occurs in the 1970s comics is pictured above.

I thought so too! I was thinking Alfred being Daphne's uncle was just lazy writing when I first saw the episode, and was really surprised when I saw this!

Wow, I had no idea.

I didn't either! It would have been cool if they would have given a little more context to that in the episode, because I'm sure most people missed it, and it's a really cool reference that people should know about!

Impressive detective work there, WV! I'm a lifelong Batman fanatic and I had no idea that this tidbit existed.

Someone sent emailed to me after they saw it on Scoobypedia! I suppose it's posisble that it's a coincidence, but nonetheless it's a cool bit of trivia!
