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: Goodbye Irishmiss

Although I never met her, on the board she always seemed very nice. Sad that she's passed on.

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.

Thanks for sharing that, epaddon! That is a nice bit of history regarding the '66 series' influence.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #166: "Batman and Robin": Hot and "Kalt"

Over the decades, Batman has a few markers almost universally identified as destructive blows to the character; one would be the much of the late Golden early Silver Age Batman comics, for some, its part or the '66 series' second and most of its third season, still others point to Legends of the Sup...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #165: Mr. Freeze(s)

Great topic, guys! Sanders and his story will always be my favorite: at that point in the series, villains still had a sense of menace, and Sanders' Freeze had that by the truckload. He was the only Bat villain who was the perfect blend of the fantastic and sophistication that one would find in a 60...

Another winner, guys. Tim, your "...he's too busy serving on every committee in Gotham City to chase any skirts." had me straining to not make an appropriately timed Andrew Cuomo reference. About the "playboy" trait purposely removed from the '66 Bruce Wayne: it's odd that Semple...

Re: McFarlane Toys doing Batman 66 figures?

The Mattel version is much more appealing, with its scale in relation to the figures being closer to real world accuracy.

Re: Adam in "Cartoon Lost & Found"

Haha, granted! But aside from the identity of the host, the concept seems lacking. I was wishing they'd at least talk more about the cartoons being shown. How was this show supposed to go episode after episode? The content feels so random. I remember catching this special when it originally aired a...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #164: "The Curse of Tut" scripts: Rondeau and Buono improve on Dennis and Barret

Another fascinating show, guys. Listening to the way a script was so different than the filmed version always gives a different perception of how the series unfolded, and what's sort of funny is that the original scripts often play better than the aired episode. I agree that Semple wanted to present...
