The Bat is a dangerous criminal who wears a dark outfit with wings who resemble a bat. He steals the top secret Formula 3 7/8 from the BFI laboratories and ran with it. During his escape, he accidentally exchanges the bottle of the formula with Woody Woodpecker's tonic. Unable to retrieve the bottle, he trikes Woody into going to his hideout thinking it was the BFI agency. There he tries to ambush Woody, but because Woody was under the effects of the formula, he easily defeats the Bat and traps him into a chest, taking him to the BFI agency. There, he opens the chest, but only his tonic was there, with no signal of the Bat.
