The note on the cover page, "We're almost making Batman stupid at times instead of earnest--careful!" Well! They certainly should have stuck with that remark over the course of the series!
Just goes to show what was lost when Semple left.

TO THE BATPOLES podcast #108: The William Dozier Fanboy

http://deconstructingcomics.com/Batpoles/dozier.jpg We all have our favorite characters and actors from "Batman", but how many of us are fanboys for Executive Producer William Dozier? Well, for one, there’s Oscar Lilley, proxy researcher at the American Heritage Center in Laramie, Wyoming. In the p...

Script: THE SECRET OF THE IMPOSSIBLE CRIMES, by Leonard Stadd

The next script we'll be discussing on TO THE BATPOLES podcast (probably around the end of May) will be Leonard Stadd's "The Secret of the Impossible Crimes," a script that Semple whole-heartedly rejected in 1965!

Re: SCRIPT: THE FUNNY FELINE FELONIES

Yeah, there are several pages missing from the first draft. Wasn't able to get in touch with Laramie in time to see if those pages were accidentally unscanned or simply missing from the archive.

Re: John Astin appears on the Gilbert Gottfried podcast!

I would respectfully disagree. As a regular listener of their podcast, I enjoy the Bat-history lessons and have NO desire (and also, no offense to anyone), to see another replica Bat-cowl, belt, shield, etc. I don't care about the toys. I want insight into what it was like at the studio, on the set...

Re: BATMAN ’66 Exhibit Revamped — and Extended Again

From their web site, it appears not. It's become what they promised a while back, a museum of the costumes and likenesses of the Terrific Trio and several other '60s-'70s live-action superheroes.

Re: John Astin appears on the Gilbert Gottfried podcast!

Interesting. Yeah, he may have dragged his feet even for Gilbert. I'm a little reluctant to try the same path Gilbert took, since I have way, way less Hollywood cred than Gilbert (in fact, I have none, last I looked), and also I'm afraid every podcaster and his brother (haha) is going to be contacti...

Re: John Astin appears on the Gilbert Gottfried podcast!

Sigh. I have tried to contact him through his university to get him on our podcast, but never got an answer. Guess I'll have to settle for a listen to this instead!

An amusing item about the production from November 1967:
December 14?? Seems to have been written before they swapped the Eartha episodes and ran "Catwoman's Dressed to Kill" on that date!
