"Penguin's Clean Sweep"
Aired January 25, 1968
It's the final appearance of Burgess Meredith as The Penguin and he doesn't exactly go out in a blaze of glory. The story involved Penguin trying to collect all of Gotham City's money that he has convinced the public is tainted with Lygerian Sleeping Sickness. Despite the hokey sounding plot, John still feels there are some things of merit in this one and talks about it with Batman at 45 author Chris Gould.

John is joined by Dan Greenfield of 13th Dimension to celebrate the birthday of Adam West. In our tribute, we discuss Adam's style of acting when it came to pre and post-Batman series. We look some of his best moments on Batman and also discuss other roles outside the series. John enthuses on Lookwell, a pilot Adam starred that should have gone to series. Finally, they discuss his resurrection today as a pop-culture icon and how that has paved the way for the interest in the Batman series on its 50th anniversary.
