    When developing the show, the WB network wanted Terry's little brother, Matt McGinnis, in on Terry's Batman secret. They even wanted Matt to have a secret exit in a closet or dumpster where a motorcycle would be there so he could be part of the adventure as sort of a Robin sidekick to Batman.

    The creators purposely tried to avoid or minimize appearances of various rogue's gallery characters from Batman's past, as they wanted the series to be able to stand on its own and not rely on such gimmicks like "Two Face Beyond" and so on and so forth. However over the course of the series, not only did certain characters make interesting cameos, but a few of them ended up being the center of many episodes. "The Winning Edge" was about the Venom drug being manufactured again and sold to Terry's classmates, and Bruce leads him to confront Bane, an obvious suspect, only to find him dying from the many years of addiction. "Meltdown" completed Mister Freeze's entire storyline in the DCAU, where he is given life in a new body, as his old one broke down because of his unique cryogenic condition, only to eventually realize he was being used as a lab experiment for Derek Powers. "Out of the Past" dealt with Talia Al Ghul, who offers Bruce Wayne a trip to the Lazarus pit as a birthday gift. Somehow Bruce and Terry figure out that Ras Al Ghul is actually behind this. Finally, the Joker makes his big and possible most famous appearance in the DCAU in the feature film "Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker". where, after presumed dead, he comes back to haunt Bruce, revealing a deep dark secret from his past. Other cameos include android versions of the Riddler, Two Face and Killer Croc, who are used as a part of Terry's training in "Terry's friend dates a robot". A "Armed and Dangerous poster" for the Joker is seen in Crime Alley in what is now know as Old Gotham, in the episode, "Shriek'. Also, Selina Kyle's picture is seen in "Out of the Past".
