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 fair 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.

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.
