Synopsis for "The Hunters of Gotham City"

Batman and Robin deal with escaped animals from a zoo ship that's crashed into a pier in Gotham Harbor. While helping to hunt down some of the animals and capturing them, Batman follows the last animal - a monkey - to a bell tower in the city. There he learns that the monkey's trainer arranged for the ship to crash, so he could smuggle diamonds into Gotham on the monkey's collar.

Synopsis for "The Great Batman Contest"

Batman holds a contest with a scholarship award to any high school student who can invent the most useful “bat-weapon.” To pick the winner, he uses the four finalists' inventions while fighting crime. The first three inventions have different drawbacks and are discarded by the Dynamic Duo. When the time comes to use the fourth invention, Batman and Robin are pleased with the "Bat-Kite", as it helps them on surveillance and can also be used to distract crooks during a fight, and gain the advantage. Jeff Keating, the inventor of the Bat-Kite, is awarded with the scholarship to study criminology and the Dynamic Duo have a new Bat-Weapon for their arsenal.
