Aired October 19/20, 1966

Vincent Price makes an eggs-cellent debut as Egghead.  Egghead wants to take over Gotham City and has an eggs-acting plan to make it happen.  He kidnaps the descendents of the three founding fathers of Gotham City, which includes Bruce Wayne, in order to make sure they can't deliver on their payment for the lease to the Last of the Mohicans.  As an added bonus, he plans to eggs-stract the identity of Batman from one of them.  Can he succeed in eggs-ecuting this plan?

 

Joining John to eggs-amine this episode is writer, teacher, and media eggs-pert, Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg.  Together they not only discuss what was fun about the episode, but they look at the social commentary on racial tolerance that is worked into it as well.
