Synopsis for Superman and Batman: "Bat-Mite Meets Mr. Mxyzptlk"
Batman and Robin are after a pair of crooks in a giant robot suit committing crimes on the streets of Gotham. When they trap the crooks by melting the tar in the road, the criminals escape with the robot's rocket jet. Superman, happens by and tries to stop the crooks by tossing a large rock at them, but suddenly the rock transforms into a giant cartoon caricature of Superman, much to the three heroes surprise. To their dismay, it was caused by Batman's "biggest fan" Bat-Mite, who wants to see Batman and Robin capture the crooks, and doesn't want to allow Superman to get involved.
In their next encounter with the crooks, Batman and Robin manage to succeed in stopping them, but suddenly in a nearby park the flowers grow giant animal heads. When Batman and Robin scold Bat-Mite for using his powers in such a way, Bat-Mite tells them he didn't do it. Things go from bad to worse when Superman's old foe Mr. Mxyzptlk appears, claiming responsibility for the flowers. He explains that he is jealous of Bat-Mite and wants to prove that he is a bigger pest out of the two animated imps.
The two imps begin an argument over their motivations over using their powers: While Mxyzptlk uses his to torment Superman, Bat-Mite uses his to try and help Batman and Robin. The two pit their powers against each other and find that they are an equal match. Mxyzptlk gives up on such a useless battle and decides to go back to tormenting Superman. However, Bat-Mite decides to step in and use his powers to thwart all of Mxyzptlk's attempts.
Ultimately, Mxyzptlk becomes so annoyed with Bat-Mite's interference he decides to return to the 5th Dimension under his own power. However, Superman, Batman and Robin are less than impressed with Bat-Mite's reckless use of his powers and he is so intimidated by their anger with him that he leaves. With both pests gone, Batman, Robin and Superman give a sigh of relief and hope they don't have to live through an experience like that again, or at least anytime soon.
