Chief Screaming Chicken
02/15/06 at 4:19am
 
I was told that Chief Screaming Chicken in the eoisodes "An Egg Groges in Gothem/An Egg Foes in Gothem" was not an original character.  Edward Everet Horton played an indian with the same name on the F Troop TV series.  Does anyone know if there is any truth to this?

If this is true, it would be impossible for the two series to cross over.  F -Troop took place during the Civil War (1860's).  Batman took place in the 1960's.  This had to be a blunder on the part of Dozier & Co.!!!

Any other thoughts or opinions on this?

Actually, Horton's character on F Troop was "Medicine Man Roaring Chicken." Similiar, but not the same.

Even if the name were exactly the same it wouldn't be a blunder in the universe of Batman anymore than the fact that Colonel Klink could pop out of the window in another episode.  Grin

This is true.  After all, the Klink character was on another show set 20-25 years prior to Batman—and on another network, too!

And leave us not forget Edward Everett Horton's wonderful voice work in "Fractured Fairy Tales"

"Once upon a time..."   Cheesy

Yeah, once upon a time, they had great cartoons....

I don't think including WWII references is all that much of a stretch.  The first Bat serial and the Adam West show were 23 years apart.

Plenty of people were proposing that Adam play the Batman role for the movie in 1989, which would put the 1966 adventures in the same continuity as the 1989 film - again, 23 years apart.

I wrote several stories that presuppose that the 40's movie serials take place in Adam West's Batverse.  I entirely avoided offering any explanation for the period discrepancies, except for one conversation between Col. Klink and the Dr. Daka:

The bald man became very animated. "Nein! Those were lies! No soldiers ever escaped from Stalag 13! Not one! I will not be held responsible for fabrications flamed by scurrilous rumors!"

"No insult was intended. Be assured that few even recall those old tales. How many years has it been now since the Allies prematurely declared victory?"

The caller regarded the ceiling as he tried to remember. "It seems like the distant past, but Robin the Boy Wonder has not yet grown to manhood, so it cannot have been that long.

"I will tell you the real reason for the Boy Wonder’s seeming eternal youth."

"Yes, yes, I’m well aware of your ‘dynamic duplicates’ theory. Haven’t you ever considered that perhaps Batman employs some manner of stunted dwarf in his missions?"





  

Great...Scott!
