Re: John Astin appears on the Gilbert Gottfried podcast!

Maybe I should also try going through his sons! You should! He obviously had a great time on Batman , and would probably love talking about his episode, once he got started. In the next podcast after this one Frank Santopadre, Gilbert's co-host, mentioned that John Astin had been their "Great White...

Re: Gypsy Rose Lee - did she actually appear on the show?

Policewoman Mooney was an interesting character. Certainly by 2nd season standards. Too bad she wasn't used again. https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BYTc1MzcxYjMtYTBjYS00ODY3LWJjOTktNDQzYmZmNTA4YTQ0XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTQxMjk0Mg@@._V1_.jpg But yes, that's not Gypsy Rose Lee. https://images-na.ssl-i...

John Astin appears on the Gilbert Gottfried podcast!

I was very excited by this, as I am a big fan of JA, one of the last living Bat-Villains. He's, by all I've ever heard, a great guy, and has had a very interesting life. He teaches acting these days. The show had apparently been chasing him down for two years! They finally got him through of his act...

Re: It is interesting to note how many actors are best known for their Batman characters

In I suppose his last interview, comic Jack Carter, Hot Rod Harry in the first Shame episodes, said he continued to get more mail about Batman than anything else he ever did. https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMTM1M2NhZjQtZGM3Yy00ZWY0LWIzYzYtOWYyZWNkMjY2YmM5XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTQxMjk0Mg@@._V1_.jpg...

Re: Show Your Green Hornet Collection

The Black Beauty from the Carl's Jr, kids meal! Boy was I happy to get this. My own actual Black Beauty . But it was all I wanted! I was done. It's the only GH collectable I have. I like to believe it's the Tom Simcox Black Beauty from Corpse of the Year. :) https://assets.listia.com/photos/1898909/...

Re: Unusual Batgirl Picture.

Could it have been the so-called "traveling Batgirl", Burt Ward's then girlfriend Karen Whitfield? She may have looked like that when Burt still had the stolen Batgirl costume. She's still around! http://www.batmania.com.ar/images/images_online/the_star03.jpg http://www.66batman.com/forums/viewtopic...

Re: Unusual Batgirl Picture.

There was a pic of Burt's Batgirl on here at one time, as well as a name. If I remember right, some came to believe she was the girl in the aforementioned pic.

Yeah. We all tend to soften up as we become old geezers. :-) Not me, I'm getting more crotchety! :) As you may have gathered. I came down a bit hard, but he was pretty rough! Bashing Adam West who's loss is still pretty painful, and trying to discount the idea that the Batman series "saved" the cha...

Re: What did the show invent that wasn't in the comics?

Aside from Batgirl, I think Mr. Freeze, an update of Mr. Zero was probably the show's greatest influence on the comics. Except for the fact that the show basically saved the Batman character from sinking to to level of say, Aquaman . https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/3/34588/701528-zero....
