For this skit you will need: Batman mask, Robin mask, Black tights, Green tights, Flash light, and a cardboard cutout of a Bat symbol.
OPEN: Mayor sitting behind desk with “Mayor” sign on desk, doing mayor-like stuff. In rushes villain, Big Foot, alias Sasquatch. He snatches us the mayor and runs out the door.
- Mayor: (screaming) “Agony! Agony!”
Lights go out. The Bat-signal (flashlight aimed at Bat symbol cutout) gleams in the distance. The lights come on and the Police Commissioner is holding the flash-light.
(A great special touch we added was to get the actual Chief of Police of our town to play the part. It added that special “guest appearance” touch.)
(Batman and Robin rush in all hero-like.)
- Batman: “What is it Commissioner?”
Commissioner: “Batman! ItÕs horrible! The mayor has been mayor-napped by some horrible villain!”
Robin: “Holy missing mayors Batman!”
Batman: “Did you find any clues Commissioner?”
Commissioner: “Only this piece of hair.”
Robin: “Holy hair balls Batman!”
Commissioner: “Batman, donÕt you get cold wearing those skimpy tights?”
Batman: “Naturally you didnÕt know I was wearing my special Thermal Bat Long Underwear!”
Batman: “Robin! WeÕve got to get to the Bat Cave and analyze this hair to find out who kidnapped the mayor.
Robin: “Right Batman!”
Batman: “To the BaÉ Do you have the keys, Robin?”
Robin: “Holy locksmith Batman! I thought you had them in your Bat Key Pouch next to your Bat-a-rang, Bat Beeper, Bat Cell Phone, and your Bat Oakley Pouch.”
Batman: “TheyÕre not here!”
Robin: “They must have fallen out on the way in!”
Batman: “WE MUST FIND THE BAT KEYS!”
Robin: “Right Batman!”
Batman: “LetÕs GO!”
Announcer (who is unseen): “Will the dynamic duo find out who kidnapped the mayor? Will they ever find the keys to the Bat-mobile? Will [youth group kid] finally [action]? Tune in next week: Same Bat Time, same Bat channel!”
