Re: TO THE BATPOLES #137: Yvonne Craig: We get a kick out of this memoir

Thanks guys for the lively discussion, thanks Scott for the link, thanks Dr. Shimel for all the vintage stories and thanks Mr. Glee for the last one. I had read before the story of her nixing the proposed 'Pat Craig' moniker. I can picture her putting her hands on her hips when they asked her to ch...

Re: Thoughts/Ideas particularly about the third season and what could have been.

I've mentioned before that Dough-zier started ramping up his apathy once the 1966 Christmas season passed, knowing that was the last gravy train before syndication had left the station. From there, his only goal was to get to the magic 100 episodes to make that happen, which required taking a meat c...

Stanley Ralph Ross decided to turn the show into one big joke.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #133: Scott Sebring is here! Holy Bat-cyclopedia!

in The Joker Goes to School, Joker notes how the botched electrocution of the Duo is similar to the East Coast blackout that had taken place roughly a month earlier. Penguin's seduction technique was also in evidence in the final episode of the Zodiac teamup with Joker. He fools Venus (not a difficu...

Re: Inger Stevens signed to appear on show?

The S2 episode of Egghead had something of a farm-based plot--in the second half anyway, so perhaps that began as a vehicle for Stevens and was then re-worked for Vincent Price. Of course, that ep included the egg shampoo Burt Ward got--reportedly for being a jerk.

Re: Board Appreciation

Hopefully, this all-too-real current situation has somewhere remotely the same sort of conclusion as the Duo's battle against the Lygerian fruit fly. :D

Four of Frank's episodes are on YouTube; his opponent was Angie Dickinson. Dates were November 21, 22, 23, and 25, 1966.
The gap of no show on the 24th was due to Thanksgiving, when CBS was showing the Lions getting pounded by the 49ers, 41-14.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #128: Roast Godzilla

In regard to the mailbag segment, the mention of Zsa Zsa's ubiquitous presence on seemingly every talk show reminded me that she had been unofficially banned from Mike Douglas' show for a few years following this notorious on-air incident from May 1966 (from a March 1967 article): Screenshot 2020-01...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #125 Minerva: Holy self-parody!

I should note that reserve MLB outfielder Al Ferrara played Adonis. He also portrayed one of the all-time favorite henchmen of the podcast, Trap Door on Black Widow. Much like another Dodger, Jim Lefebvre, was one of the henchmen of John Astin's Riddler. That brings to mind the Temper Tonic argumen...

I'll concede I was getting too greedy thinking '66 movie. He did not have time for that. But a 6-day TV shoot? Make it work, Dough-zier.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #125 Minerva: Holy self-parody!

Some more points: Oddly enough, despite an age difference of 16 years, Zsa Zsa was a friend, or at least an acquaintance of Joan Collins and set her up with the son of a Latin American dictator circa 1958. You guys made an interesting observation about Horwitz saying part of his philosophy was to n...
