Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #099: The Kitt-y Cat Shows her Claws

A fun instalment of the podcast. Thanks guys. Funny that you mentioned the Huntress as a potential winner of a previous Batty Award. Not only Earth-2 Batman's daughter, but Catwoman's as well! Re Catwoman's hair-raising bomb - it supposedly "ruined their hair forever" and yet, later in the episode, ...

And a signed Gorshin Riddler costume
A "signature costume" doesn't mean it is signed by the actor. It is his iconic costume.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #099: The Kitt-y Cat Shows her Claws

IMDb gives a filming date for the movie as 16 May 1967.

What was the filming date for Eartha's first episode? I seem to recall a newspaper article announcing her casting.

Re: Batman Goes Au Go-Go

I posted a link to this clip recently, in a different thread. This event was another element in exposing Australians to "Batmania"... a full year before the TV series started airing Down Under. It is certainly inspired by what was happening in the USA after the airing of the pilot episodes and the J...

Re: Trading cards

... there is a set of Batman 66 playing cards from the series. They are pretty cheap, but the image quality isn't all that great. I was still happy with them, though. Oh, and I think the cards do not feature any Batgirl images, just in case anyone wondered. I found my deck this week while sorting s...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #094 “The Londinium Larcenies” and a legacy layout in Los Angeles

Still catching up on "To the Batpoles!" podcasts I had missed. Really enjoying you work. Last night I heard you read out my post, about The Hollywood Museum in LA, in Episode #094 “'The Londinium Larcenies' and a legacy layout in Los Angeles". Thank you! About Londinium's "Barnaby Street", parodying...

Did this ever get released? Yes. The magazine that accompanied the Eaglemoss Kitty Car is also recently collected with all the other TV vehicles' cutaways (including the Batgirlcycle, the Jokermobile and Black Widow's motorbike & sidecar). A great collection of illustrations and factoids. https://f...

I love that Catmobile! That was a highlight of that particular episode. I also love this rendition of Catwoman, voiced by Melody Brit ... She played it very sultry while being very ruthless to the Dynamic Duo.
Yes indeed. Melendy Britt, who doubled as Batgirl in this series.

Re: Catwoman's (Eartha Kitt's) Kitty Car is coming from Eaglemoss

I've looked and looked for a model of the car that they made Catwoman's car from and have NOT had any luck. http://projectswordtoys.blogspot.com/2015/12/eaglemoss-kitty-car-from-batman-tv.html So I think I'll have to get me one, just so I have one in my collection.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #095: Mego Action Figures Emerge from the Fog

A silver "Action Jackson" radiation suit inspired our own Mr Freeze custom. A pirate coat on a red-haired cowboy or knight figure became Mad Hatter, complete with a cardboard cylinder over a brimmed hat to create his top hat with hypnotic eyes in the lid. A white jumpsuit, with laundry marker lines...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #098: “Three Villains of Doom”: A “Novel” bit of Bat-Merch

In 1966, Signet released the novel Batman vs. Three Villains of Doom by Winston Lyon. Like most Batman '66 tie-in merch, it was released very early in the show's run, which means that its ability to ape the show is limited. Lyon sometimes borrows from the comics to augment what he doesn't know abou...
