The Man Who Radiated Fear!

Scarecrow invents a potion that causes his victims to literally panic in fear and uses it on the Dynamic Duo to make them helpless. After failing to capture Scarecrow and his gang of crooks due to abject fear, Batman and Robin decide to hang up their capes for good. However Alfred reminds them both of their parents deaths and the vows they both took to fight crime. Now with renewed determination and vengeance, the Caped Crusaders hunt down Gotham's worst criminals one by one until they finally reach Scarecrow.
