1943 - Episode Eight 

"Lured by Radium"

The Colton movie serial guest starring Batman and Robin continues with a shocking cliffhanger ending for episode eight.  Well, that's the way John and Jim Beard are looking at this series as Colton continues to be much more interesting character than either of the Dynamic Duo.  Bruce and Dick track Colton, captured by Daka, to his radium mine where there is chaos in the cave system that leads to an explosive ending.  We talk this, the good and bad story elements in the episode, and the heavy New England accent of Bruce Wayne.

"The Moonman"

February 19, 1977

The Moonman is a strange, new villain the Dynamic Duo have to confront.  Even with the help of Batgirl and the limited interference of Batmite, can they stop this super powered menace?  And what does Bruce Wayne's friend, astronaut Scott Rogers have to with all this?

John and Joe Stuber of Comic Book Central are on differing sides when it comes to how much love to give this episode.  And who loves it more may surprise you.  They discuss the limited use of Batmite in this episode, the comedic romantic interest Batmite has in Batgirl, the comparisons with the 1958 World's Finest comic, "Menace of the Moonman", and those amazing gymnastic skills of the Dynamic Duo.

1943 - Episode Seven 

"The Phoney Doctor"

The Colton movie serial guest starring Batman and Robin continues with episode seven.  Well, that's the way John and Jim Beard are looking at this series as Colton continues to be much more interesting character than either of the Dynamic Duo.  Colton is captured by Daka while Bruce and Dick investigate a Chinese laundry at night. Bruce and Dick?  Not Batman and Robin?  What gives?  We talk this, the weak ending to last episode's cliffhanger, the detection skills of Batman and the payoff of the caveman guard outside Daka's hideout.
