  • Unlike the DC Comics, there is no mention of either how his physical deformity at Ace Chemical Processing Plant permanently changed his appearance or his origin as the Red Hood.
  • By contrast with the DC Comics' treatment of the Joker as Batman's greatest enemy, Batman seems not to regard him as any more dangerous or cunning than Penguin, Riddler, or Catwoman.
  • He is not shown to be as homicidal as his comic counterpart, and does not use his signature weapon, Joker Venom, that makes people laugh themselves literally to death and leaves their corpses with rictus grins on their faces. However, in , "The Joker Trumps An Ace"/"Batman Sets the Pace", he did use deadly gas, but made sure his henchmen safely drained it out of the death trap to make sure civilians wouldn’t get killed by it.
  • In an interview with Joel Eisner about his role, published in The Official Batman Batbook, Cesar said, "Why wanted me I'll never know because I asked his wife, Ann Rutherford, 'Why did Bill think of me for this part?' She said, 'I don't know. He said he saw you in something, and he said, "He's the one I want to play the Joker."' I haven't the slightest idea what it was that he saw me in, because I had never done anything like it before."
  • Because Cesar Romero refused to shave his moustache, the make-up artists working with Ben Nye Sr., who designed the Joker makeup format for color television, had to cover it with as much white make-up as they could. It did show up in a lot of close-ups.
