If you're not able to watch right now, here's the script. But don't underestimate the nostalgic feeling you'll get from watching a little old-school TV. It's short!

Narrator: A ticking bomb means trouble for Batman and Robin.


Robin: Holy breaking and entering! Its Batgirl!

Batman: Quick Batgirl, untie us before it's too late.

Batgirl: It's already too late. I've worked for you a long time and I'm paid less than Robin. Same job, same employer means equal pay for men and women.

Batman: No time for jokes, Batgirl.

Batgirl: It's no joke. Its the federal equal pay law.

Robin: Holy act of Congress!

Batgirl: If you're not getting equal pay, contact the Wage and Hour Division, U.S. Department of Labor.
