History of character is unknown.
- This version of the character is exclusive to the continuity of the television series Batman and is an adaptation of Alfred. The original character was created by Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson and first appeared in Batman #16.
- Alfred was portrayed by Alan Napier.
- Although it is assumed that Alfred's surname is Pennyworth, as in the comic books, Alfred never used a surname on-screen and was never referred to by one.
- Alfred is the only person who knows the secret of Batman and Robin's dual identities. He also knows the secret of Batgirl's identity, though Batman and Robin are unaware of this.
- It was Alfred who originally made the costumes for Batman and Robin.
- Alfred usually answers the Batphone, which sits on the desk in Bruce Wayne's study like a normal everyday telephone.
- Alfred has a look-alike cousin, Egbert, who works as night watchman at the Gotham City Reservoir ("The Joker's Provokers"). He also has a second cousin, Cuthbert, whose taxicab Alfred uses to drive around Londinium ("The Londinium Larcernies", "The Foggiest Notion", and "The Bloody Tower"), but Cuthbert himself is never seen on-screen.
- Alfred is also the look-alike of Lord Easystreet, one of the prospective customers at Minerva's mineral spa ("Minerva, Mayhem and Millionaires"). However, we never get to meet the real Lord Easystreet.
