Gotham City Residents
Warden Crichton- Mister Crichton is the warden of Gotham State Penitentiary. An afternoon nap in a bed in his office (which is decorated to give a warm sense of home) is a regular part of his daily routine.
Miss Bonnie Williams- Commissioner Gordon's faithful secretary. Whenever Gordon needs something, he gives her a buzz on the intercom. She sometimes hand-delivers messages to Gordon or to the Caped Crusader should they be present.
Babette- A somewhat ditsy hat-check girl at the Gotham Convention Hall during the Fire Chief's convention.
Octave Marbot- A simple sculptor who was commissioned by Warden Crichton to sculpt the image of Batman. He was particularly pleased with his representation of Batman's head.
Principal A.P Schoolfield- The principal of Woodrow Roosevelt High School. He speaks fondly of Dick Grayson.
Mr. Leo Gore- Program Manager of Gotham City Radio
Mr. Vandergilt- No title was given but he is obviously a man of some importance in Gotham City politics. He visits stately Wayne Manor every two years and implores Bruce to run for Mayor. Each year, Bruce Wayne declines.
Sophia Starr- "A beauteous queen of Gotham society", Miss Sophia Starr is among the city's elite. A single woman of considerable wealth, she was at one time engaged to the Penquin. Unfortunately, the proposal was just a ploy by the Penquin to steal the expensive wedding gifts given by Gotham City's millionaires. He left her at the altar.
Mister Andrews- The wealthy owner of the golden gilded cats upon which the map leading to Captain Manx's long lost treasure can be found. It is not known if Andrews knew about the map or not, but it is assumed he did not for he never sought the treasure himself. He is a cautious man who would never display the cats together in one place. That way, he would not lose both should there be a robbery. Despite this precaution, he lost both cats to Catwoman in two seperate robberies. The cats were eventually retrieved by Batman and Robin and returned to their owner.
Miss Prentice- She is the librarian of the Gotham City library. When Batman and Robin walked into the library one day, she got so excited she forgot all about the 'no talking' sign and had to be reminded by the Caped Crusader to speak quietly. Whenever a student checks out a book, she sternly reminds them, "No writing in the margins."
Prescott Belmont- The Belmonts are a family with a history in banking. Prescott, for instance, is the President of The Gotham City State Bank. He is also a member of the Winnie Coto Country Club.

Captain Courageous- He was part of the police exchange program, lent to the Gotham City PD from Los Angeles. His unfamiliarity with the city and lack of research was made painfully aware when he placed Batman under arrest. Commissioner Gordon later chastised him, but Batman was very understanding.
Governor Stonefellow- He rarely visits Gotham City, perhaps because he is confident that Commissioner Gordon, with the aid of Batman, can keep matters under control.
Mayor Linseed- Gotham's Mayor is very grateful for Batman's tireless work in Gotham City, he has commended him on several occasions. He rarely gets involved in police matters, only when disaster strikes and he is forced to demand a quick resolution from his police force. He makes frequent visits to the Asian front.
Judge Moot- A judge of the Gotham City court system, Moot believes "the Code of Law is a cornerstone of society". Having said this, on one occassion his judicial practices seemed questionable when he was impressed by Penquin's eloquence and granted him his freedom.
Andrew S. Kitten- This father of triplets was at one time Gotham City Father of the Year. He and his family live in the Russel Arms Apartments. The nefarious Catwoman stole three pairs of mittens from the Kitten household.
Captain Ahab- Though it is not known if this is his real name or not, Captain Ahab is the head of the White Whaling Company. He fondly remembers the day the Dynamic Duo strolled into his office and asked to borrow a couple of his fish nets. If you ask him, Ahab will gladly tell you how his fish nets saved the lives of Batman and Robin.
Zubin Zucchini- This Gotham City resident made his millions by cornering the sulphur market during the 1920's. He then expanded his wealth by establishing the Ruby Match Company. Current speculations state Zucchini is worth $18 million. Due to such wealth, Zucchini is chauffered around town in an armored truck. Mister Zucchini is the proud owner of two antique Stratavarius violins which he was going to sell to an interested buyer for $500,000. Catwoman had her eyes on the violins too and disguised herself as the buyer and tried to steal the $500,000 and the violins. Luckily, Batman and Robin foiled the plot.
Miss Minerva Matthews- A well known wealthy recluse who was interested in buying Zubin Zucchini's violins. Catwoman accosted Miss Matthews in her home and disguised herself in order to steal the violins and the $500,000 Miss Matthews was going to pay for the instruments.
Ralph Stofoloculous- He had been driving armored cars for four years when he was hired to drive Miss Minerva Matthews (actually Catwoman in disguise) to the Gotham State Building. He's raising three kids and studying to become an accountant at night classes. A very attractive man, he caught the fancy of Catwoman who was horribly disappointed to hear he already has a family.

Marshall Roland- the Gotham City Commissioner in charge of poor people. He is an old fraternity brother of Police Commissioner Gordon, and at one time during his career was governor.
Harry Hammert- Owner of the Gotham City antique shop which bears his name. Good friend of Benson Parkhurst.
Benson Parkhurst- Owner of the famous Parkhurst Galleries, and friend of Harry Hammert. Mister Parkhurst was fortunate enough to see Batman's brilliant deductive mind at work when the Dynamic Duo visited his gallery. Benson was amazed how Batman could put clues together to further the investigation. Parkhurst admitted he would never have been able to figure it out.
Mrs. Frontonac- One of Gotham City's elite members of high society. A regular patron of Hammert's antique shop, she is partial to diamond jewelry.

Reggie Dietrick- a rookie cop on the Gotham City Police Force and the partner of Officer Hogan. Early on in his career, Reggie wanted to write Batman up for two traffic violations despite his seasoned partner's assurances that Batman was one of the good guys. Reggie really gave Batman a hard time stating the Batmobile's registration was incomplete, the keys were left in the ignition and Batman failed to report a stolen vehicle. Reggie wanted to impound the car and run Batman in. Of course, through all of this Batman was very calm and cooperative though as the seconds passed Robin's life was in danger. Officer Hogan managed to talk Reggie out of his rash behavior, but it wasn't easy.
Officer Hogan- a seasoned police officer on the Gotham City Police Force. His rookie partner, Reggie wanted to write Batman tickets for numerous traffic violations. Hogan managed to convince Reggie otherwise, telling his partner he had a lot to learn about Gotham.
Police Woman Mooney- officer Mooney was an undercover agent who infiltrated Catwoman's gang as 'Catarina'. Just as Mooney was reporting to Commissioner Gordon via hidden microphone that Catwoman had teamed up with the notorious European criminal Sandman, her cover was blown. Catwoman tossed her inside a giant maze where she wandered until she was later joined by Robin, also a captive of Catwoman. Batman eventually found and freed them both.
Peter Savage- the descendant of the Savage family, one of three families who founded Gotham City. Due to his lineage, he was kidnapped by the villain Egghead who hoped to disrupt the renewal of the Gotham City lease with the Mochicans so he himself could get ownership of the city.

Peter Spaghetti fell into a kneading machine. J. Phineous Spaghetti rode a pasta tray into the ovens. J. Patrick Spaghetti was cut to pieces by revolving knives. Her fourth and last husand, J. Paul Spaghetti, stumbled into a steam cylinder. Apparently, he expanded to three times his size, but was not at all pasty.
J. Pauline was about to be married a fifth time, to her doctor who was helping her get over her insomnia. She had been an insomniac since she made her second billion. The last bit of shut eye she got was seven years ago during a rock concert. She has searched the world over for a cure without luck. That is until Dr. Somnombula arrived in Gotham.
She called Dr. Somnombula her savior and was so grateful for his help, she had fallen in love and together they eloped. They had planned a wedding on J. Pauline Spaghetti Island but Batman and Robin showed up and stopped the ceremony before it could even begin.
Little did she know, Dr. Somnombula was in fact the notorious criminal Sandman. He was only interested in her millions. Batman and Robin ended his scheme and put him behind bars. During the fight between the Dynamic Duo and Sandman and his henchmen, J Pauline fell into a restful sleep.
