Re: TO THE BATPOLES #203: “Has TV gone batty?” Snarky press coverage from 1966

I'm interested in Humphrey's characterization of "sophisticates." I would guess he considered himself one. Seems as though a lot of journalists of the time thought of themselves that way. Not an unknown quality in the field today, either, but seems to have been worse in the era when it was...

TO THE BATPOLES #204: “Rembrandt III”: Watching paint dry

https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/65262/rembrandtandbatman.jpg TO THE BATPOLES: We discuss "Rembrandt the Third Meets his Master," a rejected Batman '66 script treatment by Yale Udoff. While some parts are spot-on, a vain, goofy Batman and armed-to-the-teeth Alfred are pretty far off ...

Re: TREATMENT by Yale Udoff: "Rembrandt the Third Meets His Master"

I was mistaken on the deadline. We're recording on the 19th. So you have an additional day.

OK, interesting. Yeah, a joke that would definitely fly over the heads of most Americans. Thanks!

Thanks, Hornet. I guess "Batman" has a double meaning here, but I'm not quite getting the other one...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #203: “Has TV gone batty?” Snarky press coverage from 1966

I didn't get around to mentioning it on the podcast, but it reminds me of how the press at the time regarded the Beatles, especially in the Beatlemania era. The Fab Four got a ton of snark sent their way.

Re: Script: THE OGG COUPLE 3-parter

TO THE BATPOLES #203: “Has TV gone batty?” Snarky press coverage from 1966

https://assets.libsyn.com/secure/show/65262/SnarkyPressCoverage.jpg At the height of Batmania in the first half of 1966, nearly every press outlet found it necessary to do a feature story on the phenomenon. But many in the media were not terribly impressed by Batman, so these articles tend to look ...

Re: Was the "Joker's Wild" prison escape from the comics?

Maybe it was inspired by the idea of using the phrase "springing out of jail" as a literal, "The Devil, he Sprung himself!" added to the script and method of escape. It plays out more to the campy pun humor along with the budget of the show (just use an off camera sound effect a...
