Aired November 16/17, 1966

The Joker is back in Gotham City and his latest crime spree involves keys of all types.  But there doesn't seem to be any real pattern to the Joker's scheme, even when he develops a box that allows him to control time.  Can Batman and Robin unlock the mystery of this case or will it be too much even for them?

 

Joining John to discuss this disjointed episode is Gary Mitchel of The Revcastand DragonCon's American Sci-Fi Classics Track.

Aired November 9/10, 1966

Mr. Freeze returns to Gotham City and is looking for love in all the wrong places.  He kidnaps a beauty contestant and promises she will love him by making her as cold as he is.  Of course, he also has to deal with Batman, but he has a plan for the Caped Crusader that will tarnish his image.

 

Joining John to discuss this episode is Dan Greenfield, creator and author of the 13th Dimension website.

Aired November 2/3, 1966

It's election season once again and the fair citizens of Gotham City have the opportunity to vote for mayor.  It would appear that Mayor Linseed would easily win as he is a fine, upstanding politician, but then the Penguin throws his top hat into the ring.

 

 

As with any political process, something new gets the attention of the public, even that of an arch-criminal running for office.  There can only be one man who can stand up to this political machine - Batman.

 

 

Joining John to discuss this unusual episode that has many of the tropes of a Batman episode save for any real crime solving is writer/editor Glenn Greenberg.

It's day two of our week-long look at the Batman 1966 series and John and Dan Greenfield of the 13th Dimension website take on the gadgets of the series.  As much as everyone likes to point out how much Star Trek was so futuristic, here was Batman, set in modern times, and featuring a number of futuristic gadgets.

Aired October 26/27, 1966

When is a Batman episode not really a Batman episode?  No, this isn't a Riddler episode.  Bruce & Dick and Batman & Robin are barely seen in the first part of this two-parter featuring Liberace as the Great Chandell.  What brought that about?  How well did Liberace fare with the Dynamic Duo?  And was there really a plot in all this anyway?

 

Chandell, with the aid of the Doe, Rae, and MiMi, attempts to get hold of the Wayne fortune by seducing Aunt Harriet and plotting the deaths of Bruce & Dick.  Can he accomplish this and rid himself of his twin brother's blackmail attempt?  (Yeah, sounds like a plot to us.

 

Joining John to discuss Liberace's performance both musically and thespian-wise is Mission Log: A Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast co-host John Champion.
