"The Joker is Wild/Batman is Riled"
January 26/27, 1966
The Joker "springs" himself from jail in time to exact revenge on the curators of a museum exhibit on comedy legends. He's upset that he wasn't included in the exhibit. But Batman's on the scene to stop him with the aid of his trusty utility belt. The Joker swears never to fall for the gimmicks of the belt by fighting fire with fire and creating his own. The belt proves to be a match for the Dynamic Duo as the city of Gotham begins to lose faith in them as they fall for the pranks from the Joker's utility belt.
Joining John for the first appearance of The Joker is Geek Radio Daily's Billy Flynn.

The Wonderful Billy Flynn brings the funny each week on Geek Radio Daily! His daytime alter ego is mild-mannered (well, that part is a stretch) radio station personality at WLEE in Virginia. He actually gets paid to sit on his butt and run his mouth! His “edumacation” is from UNC-Wilmington, the Columbia School of Broadcasting, and University of Phoenix. When he is not gracing the podcasting airways with his comedic stylings, you can find Billy Flynn on Xbox Live (flynn71), rockin’ out on Guitar Hero or Rock Band, watching movies, reading comics, working out, or posting on the forums at geekradiodaily.com (ding!).

Thanks so much, Roo. Sorry about the late reply. I'm not getting notifications of comments so I need to be more diligent of the boards. I have heard others say this isn't the strongest of the first season entries, but I still get a thrill watching Batman explain to Joker how he deduced the scheme as they are fighting. It's very Marvelesque!
Just finished listening to the episode, and what a joy it was too. Some great comments and observations about this episode. I don't quite agree that this is the best Batman story but it's certainly up there in my own top five. The early episodes managed to tread the fine line between humour and drama so well. I think that Nancy Kovack is absolutely delicious as The Joker's moll, Queenie - but, yes, she could have been better served by the script. Looking forward to your next episode :-) Best Bat-wishes from England (should I say Londinium?)
