Synopsis

Preparing to go off on patrol, Batman and Robin find the Bat-Cave disturbed and meet Bat-Mite, an admirer of Batman's from another dimension. Bat-Mite wants to join Batman and Robin in their fight against crime, but Batman politely convinces Bat-Mite that that won't work. Instead, Bat-Mite tries to make Batman and Robin's exploits a little more entertaining, a little more "fun." In the end, Batman finds a way to make Bat-Mite useful, which lets the imp know it's time to go home.

Synopsis

When an earthquake exposes a portion of an underground sea, a small town hopes it will be a boon to its tourism business. But a legend warns that if a person swims too deep in the water, he'll turn into a fish. Roy Raymond films the attempts of two townspeople to disprove the legend for Impossible but True, but in both cases, when underwater, a strange underwater cloud envelops them. They disappear, and a fish appears in their place. Noticing a whale amongst all the other ocean life, Roy decides to try it himself. Though Roy disappears and a fish appears in his place, the TV detective has actually gone inside the whale and found the men behind the scheme. He became suspicious when he noticed that the whale never came to the surface to breathe, and finds that the legend was a ploy to scare people away from the lake bed, which is covered with treasure.
