Re: TO THE BATPOLES #127: It’s a “Challenge” Just to Sit Through “Legends”

Great photo, Ian - spotted a couple of them cheap-ish on eBay but can't tell if they are originals. (Don't suppose you could do a bigger scan of it, pleeease? ;) ) Saw both shows when they originally aired; I remember them as just awful in that late-'70s-TV-special way. At least Hawkman looked great...

Ross would probably hedge his bets by saying "Nobody - she knocked herself out after she tripped over the Riddler." :lol:

Re: Will Burt's Appearance on Crisis on Infinite Earths Set a Record?

Longest I could think of (first to most recent) was Jerry Mathers and Tony Dow playing Beaver and Wally Cleaver on a MeTV promo that first appeared in 2017 - 60 years as those characters (exactly twice as long as Anthony Perkins first and last played Norman Bates!). Next after Nimoy would probably b...

Re: Protagonist of ‘She’s Leaving Home’ and Robin

Cool story! Has Burt had much to say about Melanie?
(O/T: I always wondered if Paul McCartney's "Another Day" was a sequel/answer song to "She's Leaving Home"...)

Re: When did you first see the show?

I was five years old when it started, and I was utterly mesmerized by it - and pretty much stayed that way ever since :) . We didn't get a color TV until about 1971 or 1972, but I did get to see a couple episodes in color on the neighbors' set. I vaguely remember some of us playing Batman in the bac...

Re: KHJ Promotion

Hmm. Where's Robin? Maybe Dick Grayson had a big exam over at Woodrow Roosevelt that day...

Seriously, which episode would they have been filming when the prize was awarded?

Re: Leslie Gore Interview

Very interesting to hear that Lesley was scheduled for an earlier episode - I'm guessing "The Cat's Meow/The Bat's Kow Tow", which had the music angle. Wonder if there's an earlier draft of the script that would have had Catwoman stealing Chad and Jeremy's voices, then subbing Lesley (as Pussycat) i...

Re: "Fine Finny Fiends"....Changes From Script To Production

Hmm - no automatic fishhooks in there; Penguin just gasses them "at the right moment" - and according to the Part 2 recap, Robin gets it first instead of Batman. As an aside, anyone else have trouble with opening the Dropbox files? All I get here is an oversized image of half the cover. Had to acces...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #116: Victor Buono: Holy Ad-Libbed Comedy!

I spotted another difference between the final draft and the show as it aired: the reason Mayor Linseed was out of town was that he was on "one of his many trips to Vietnam". As filmed, it was changed to "the Asian Front". Just trying to be a bit less specific? At least they didnt't call it Cambones...
