Silly Stuff - Wayne Foundation Building Batcave

After the Batman TV series ended, editor Julie Schwartz felt as though he should streamline the Bat-titles, and go for a "back to basics" approach.

This meant Robin would go off to college for his own adventures.

It also meant no more Batcave.

To accomplish this task, Scwartz had Batman leave Wayne Manor and take up residence in the penthouse of the Wayne Foundation Building in the middle of Gotham.

This was the status quo for a few years, until writers more and more had Batman travel to the Batcave to do things.

So Steve Englehart came up with the idea of having a SECOND Batcave - underneath the Wayne Foundation Building!

Pretty silly, eh?

This lasted for about three years, and even after it was given up, this Batcave remained in use as the headquarters for the Outsiders!!

The best part about the WF Batcave was that Batman went to all the trouble to have the giant penny and robot tyrannosaurus moved to the new digs. Some things just make a house a home, I guess.

Haha...totally, Bill!

In fact, I believe there's a later issue that showed Dick and Alfred lugging the giant penny BACK to the Batcave!!

By the way, Bruce's reasoning for leaving the Wayne Foundation Building was that living IN the building made it harder for him to avoid work!!
