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. Robin spots the Grasshopper on the deck of the ship from the Batboat and makes way to aid Batman. 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, and as they go home in the Batmobile, they are startled by a recorded warning by a crook called the Outsider, who reveals that he hired the Grasshoppers to act on his behalf, and he states that next time he will defeat Batman and Robin.
