Awesome, G-Man!! I've always wanted to know the TRUE origin of where the dinosaur and penny came from.
 
Actually, I JUST watched an episode of Batman TAS "Almost Got 'Im" that gave another explanation of the giant penny.While robbing the Gotham mint, Two-Face strapped Batman to a giant penny and flipped it while he was on it and, after escaping and stopping Two Face from robbing the mint, Batman was allowed to keep it as a memento.

One of your best G-Man. Maybe you could do a Green Lantern or Captain America one next since there is alot of buzz about those movies.

He should put Damian as a trophy from Talia's womb....
 
Too much? O_o

#7 Posted by Dark Walker (477 posts) - - Show Bio

Awesome G-Man.  What remains to be seen is the future of the Batcave with Bruce traveling the world and Dick with his Batbunker, and Steph no longer working out of the cave.
 
@Cruz:  LOL

#13 Posted by Doctorchimp (62 posts) - - Show Bio

Eh, as long as you know Batman has a cave on his estate no one knows about and there's a computer and all his gadgets there you're fine. It's like his costume, artists and writers have fun with it and change it depending on what they need. 
 
Love your shirt by the way, I also never heard about the dinosaur until now, I knew about the penny though.

Same here... I always wondered what that was about... 
I still don't understand the giant Joker card though! 
 
Once again kudos to Joey for that amazing work he did on the video!

Is the penny and the dino still in the cave for current continuity.
#23 Posted by Silkcuts (5272 posts) - - Show Bio

G-Man you are awesome!  So much of that stuff makes Grant Morrison's run even better, like the first Batman suit!

#24 Posted by seannyboy (1 posts) - - Show Bio

my fave TeeFury shirt!  and i love how Batman can just collect evidence and weapons from crime scenes basically. 

#25 Posted by sandman813 (104 posts) - - Show Bio

Isn't Batman a thief by stealing his trophies or did he buy them after each caper involving them?

#28 Posted by sweatboy (810 posts) - - Show Bio

Now i know,... that's like half the fight,...did i say that right? Seriously that's some SERIOUS info, i always wondered, thought the coin was 2 face's,...but he liked quarters

#29 Posted by Daniel_Newton (46 posts) - - Show Bio

I think I actually remember the Giant Penny and the Joker card in some of the cartoons. 
Pretty cool that I know where they came from now, thanks Tony, great video.

While this would be a great idea for a video it fails for the fact that it is largely fill with inaccurate information for the New Earth's history.

@Silkcuts: I was so excited when Jeremy Coe was mentioned right after I filmed this. Yes, Grant knows his Bat-history.

Really awesome video!
And original! I was expecting yet another character 3-minute expert...

Doesn't the giant coin and dino have another explanations in Post-Crisis DC?
I remember a similar coin in one of Jeph Loeb's Dark Victory/Long Halloween or Robin Year One...?? (need to check that out again)
