Re: Burt Ward's script "The Exploits of Dr. Voodoo"?

I would find it easier to believe one of the stars of a then-popular series wrote a script (which was not uncommon in TV history, and was at least a news story as seen in Mr. Glee's posts) than Stanley Ralph Ross's season three script fable. No network was going to broadcast that even if it (somehow...

Re: Bat Laser gun prop

It would be a gross understatement to say you are knocking the screen accurate prop replicas out of the park.

Well done!

Re: My Season two sketch collection is currently in production

I love the source selection for the Green Hornet and Kato. You effectively captured their attitude in the crossover.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #172: “Mr Zero”: A Dozier/Semple dead end

Good show, guys. Conceptually, the Mr. Zero story was ahead of its time--creating a series based around that kind of "outsider" fantasy character only previously explored on anthology series such as The Twilight Zone & The Outer Limits . The ideas for Zero's mission had many possibilit...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #171 "Adam West Naked": Back to "Back to the Batcave"

Guys, there's no need to sound so apologetic when mentioning the shortcomings of Adam West Naked ; while it was a good effort to talk about the series, as you pointed out, West retold long-debunked stories and myths about the series, and to hear him go that route just took me out of the production, ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #170: Power Bat-Records

Power Records, where so many characters sounded like escapees from The Bowery Boys movies pretending to be superheroes. Yikes, and then some. What's strange is that the late Peter Fernandez's voice leaned in that, "Hey--youse punks wanna sock inda mouth??" direction while he voiced Power R...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #168: “Dick Tracy” and “Wonder Woman”: The Dozierverse Stumbles

Another winner, guys. You were wondering how films like the Wonder Woman short were used, and you were on the right track by theorizing that it was aired for the networks. Even very successful producers still needed to go the "proof of concept" route when trying to get a new series greenli...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #167: Tom Peyer talks “Batman 66” and “The Wrong Earth”

But I know you know that. So I guess I'm wondering if you can clarify what the difference is? Going by Peyer's statement: "..the Batman TV show in the 60s in particular was a VERY honest portrayal of what comic books were at the time .." He was generalizing about all comic books--not just...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #167: Tom Peyer talks “Batman 66” and “The Wrong Earth”

When Tom said this, I assumed he was talking about DC comics c.1966, not Marvel (though of course he didn’t say so explicitly). Gardner Fox’s JLA stories were great fun, for example, but goofy as anything, logically challenged, and the characters? Flat as pancakes. When Tim and I read New Look Batm...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #167: Tom Peyer talks “Batman 66” and “The Wrong Earth”

Interesting interview, guys. The idea of two versions of the same character meeting and/or misunderstanding the other reminded me of one-panel MAD magazine parodies where this kind of meeting led to one character insulting the other. For someone in the comic business, Peyer did go down a head-scratc...

Re: Happy Hornet Anniversary!

Absolutely fantastic work, Todd! Your figures are far closer to the TV characters than some of the commercially available figures based on Batman '66. About the anniversary, yes, I thought about the series and how that kind of adaptation really paved the way toward serious adaptations of costumed ch...

No kidding, and the $85.00 price? Waaayyy too overpriced for this kind of playset.
