In the episode's segment paying tribute to the 1950s' comic book Batman, the ...

Re: HOw many characthers were killed off ..or nearly so..?

In "The Joker's Provokers," the two henchmen are discussing what a great guy the Joker is. One mentions that Joker threw his parole officer into Gotham River with cement galoshes.

Re: Episode titles that don't quite make sense?

"The Cat's Meow / The Bat's Kow Tow"

Kow tow [sic], kowtow = bow to, defer, grovel. The Dynamic Duo win (naturally), so "The Cat's Kow Tow" would make sense, but not the episode title they went with.

Re: July 23rd is Batman's 75th Birthday

I'd love to know how they came up with the date-- Batman was first published in May 1939 which means it was likely on stands around March of that year. Warner/DC intentionally "fudged" the date so that it would coincide with the first day of SDCC, and could be tied into that weekend's publicity mac...

Re: Aunt Harriet away from Wayne Manor

I read that she was offered the part of Aunt Bea on Andy Griffith -- she was the go to gal for that sort of part in the early to mid 60's. But she was too busy, so she recommended her friend Frances Bavier. Yes, but no. Madge was initially approached to play 'Henrietta Perkins' in THE DANNY THOMAS ...

Re: R.I.P. Paul Mantee, Guest Bat-Actor, 82

Was he the guy with the red hair who slinks in his seat when Batman starts describing him to a T? Paul played 'Cornell', the henchman who frames Batman by wearing the stolen costume. http://i1342.photobucket.com/albums/o780/BeAStooge/PaulMantee_BATMAN1_zps3c5c8e1b.jpg http://i1342.photobucket.com/a...
