Synopsis for "The Man Who Stole From Batman!"

When trying to stop the costumed criminal known as the Grasshopper from escaping with loot stolen from a bank, the crook tricks Batman and Robin into scaling the wall of a building, while he makes a quick getaway by stealing the Batmobile.

Later at an auction aboard a boat where Batman is to sell off one of his Batarangs for charity, it is stolen by the Grasshopper who manages to slip out of Batman's grasp. Batman call's Robin to come to his aid in the Batboat. However when Robin arrives, the Grasshopper steals the Batboat and kidnaps Robin, sending Batman back his Batarang with taunts about what he will steal next.

Deducing that the Grasshopper would be hiding out in the docks, Batman sees through their trap which uses a recording of Robin to call for help. Batman rounds up the crooks and turns them over to the police. Batman frees Robin, they go home on the Batmobile, they are startled by a recorded warning by a crook called the Outsider, who reveals that he hired the Grasshopper to act on his behalf and he states that next time he will defeat Batman and Robin.
