The Jokermobile during the Silver Age



The Jokermobile was used throughout the Silver Age as the Clown Prince's mode of transportation.

In Gotham City Sirens #5, Harley Quinn mentions that Joker had retired the car out of embarassment around the time they started dating.


Though it's had many different forms, the Jokermobile's most famous look was a purple car with a larger version of the Joker's smiling face was mounted on the grille.



In the comics, the Jokermobile seldom appears as more than a customized car. However, in later appearances, it has been shown with a spring-loaded boxng glove in the trunk and an ejector seat.

In earlier appearances, the car had a "bridge-building" feature, allowing it to create bridges to drive on.

In Batman: The Animated Series (and sequel series "The New Batman Adventures"), it had a large missile rack in the trunk at a false rear half that could detatch (with the real rear half beneath it) which allowed it to escape the Batmobile's grapple.

In "Batman: the Brave and the Bold", it had a large hot air baloon to deploy if it's wheels were taken out, as well as four large springs. It's weapons included two mechanical arms in the trunk that squeeze a giant whoopie-cusion, creating a compressed air blast (powerful enough to knock Black Manta's tripod off a cliff); can fire an oversized jack-in-the-box from the "mouth" of the Joker face (to distract the coulrophobic Guy Gardner), can launch a giant Joker Fish from the side (smashing the Batmobile's windshield), and has a giant flower that sprays acid (used to destroy the tires on the Huntress's motorcycle).

In Other MediaEdit


In the Adam West series

The Jokermobile has appeared in the 1966 Batman Television Series as a modified dragster, Batman: The Animated Series as a simple purple car (though the episode "Joker's Wild" featured one that resembled a purple golf cart with Joker's face on the front), and "Batman: the Brave and the Bold".
