Re: Parodied Names in the '66 series

One more that we all seem to have missed: Gotham City's district attorney is mentioned in passing in "He Meets His Match, the Grisly Ghoul" and "The Joke's on Catwoman," but his actual name is stated in "The Bird's Last Jest": Jefferson Hamfurter, clearly a spoof of Hamilton Burger from "Perry Mason."

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #114: Putting "Clean Sweep" under the microscope

a newsstand ... covered ... with what looks like multicolor wrapping paper I thought the same, Jim, about how rinky-dink and unfinished it looks, and like you, I had the same difficulty at first in recognizing just what it was. That same newsstand is behind the old lady and the Boy Scout trying to ...

Re: Just wanted to reshare this

There's also this: https://i.redd.it/htwagdc80we21.jpg I would have preferred to have seen Reeves in this rather than Reeve, but only because I like to keep the TV heroes with the other TV heroes and the movie heroes with the other movie heroes (and where are the Scarlet Cyclone and Ghetto Man?? :D ...

Re: Things you didn't notice or remember until seeing the DVDs

The building in question (sometimes referred in the studio's history as "The Colonial Home") is in fact the front offices of the Desilu/Culver Studios. http://66batman.com/forums/download/file.php?id=6821&t=1&sid=4a18f5120d2a1caf37a16ab06fc5dc3e How cool!

Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

My latest acquisition was this issue (#7) of DC's "Solo" comic book, which contains the surreal Batman '66 story "Batman A-Go-Go!" https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/f/fd/Solo_Vol_1_7.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100724024106 The story originally was published in 2005 and is included i...

Re: Parodied Names in the '66 series

I don't think this one's been mentioned:

The gun shop Shame holds up in "The Great Train Robbery," Peter's Guns & Ammo, is a takeoff on the TV series "Peter Gunn" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Gunn).

Re: Favorites

Another favorite that always gives me a chuckle, from "Ring Around the Riddler": Commissioner Gordon (after hearing Southwestern Asia's unchallenged champion Mushy Nebuchadnezzar's diet): "He sounds like Southwestern Asia's unchallenged nut." I'm also quite fond of this silly exchange, from "Catwoma...

Re: Things you didn't notice or remember until seeing the DVDs

Either Minerva Matthews, Karnaby Katz and Mr. Van Jones all live together in one house, or else all of their homes were designed by the same architect, because the same building is used for the exterior of all three. It's a long facade with columns and a wide set of brick steps in front. There's als...

Kite Kid - Love the name, love the avatar! 8-) Thank you, Yellow Oval! He's a superhero character I imagined years ago, obviously inspired by Kite Man, who obviously was inspired by Charlie Brown.

Re: Other Great 60s Shows...

I love TV from the sixties! I can’t really put my finger on it, but something about the shows from that era just make me so happy! It may be because that's when so much creativity or fantasy erupted in show concepts. Yes, we had fairly standard crime dramas, family comedies and Westerns, but -- as ...

That's a great catch! Thank you, Ben! Admittedly, because I had initially noticed the outfit on Barbara in "The Sport of Penguins," I was searching for a picture from that episode to illustrate my post and only then did I recognize she's wearing it in the comic book photo, too. I was so pleased wit...

These are my other favorite '60s shows. The Green Hornet The Monkees The Avengers (Steed and Mrs Peel) The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
