Re: Anyone building a Total Dehydrator replica?

The model in Jimmy’s link is the correct one. The link I shared months ago pointed to one of those models as well; as Troy notes above, the model it points to now (Model 30) is not the correct one. Because the correct model’s name—three capital Xes in a row—is nowadays associated with “adult” conten...

Re: Egghead Radar Egg Prop

I've been rewatching season 2 episodes lately, and something occurred to me about the Radar Egg. I'd long assumed the ring around its waist was purely decorative, and meant to add a Jetsons-like futuristic touch to Egghead's high-tech eggsplosive. But I realized the ring was needed to allow Egghead ...

Re: Logo Color questions

Excellent question. I hope someone on the board has firsthand insight into this. (I don't.) The earliest instance I recall of yellow lettering on the TV logo was on the Topps trading card wax packs, which indicates the "colorization" started pretty early on. FWIW, I've participated in seve...

Anyone building a Total Dehydrator replica?

In the course of some otherwise Batman-less research, I came across an eBay listing for the Electrolux model used as the basis for Commodore Schmidlapp's invention. $50 seems like a pretty good deal, if you're in the market. According to the seller, it still works (as a vacuum cleaner).

Re: Ross's Revived "Ronald Raygun"

One nitpick--just for the record, the episode technically was written by a guy named Roy Kammerman, but of course it is one of Ross' darlings as he not only developed the series, but is credited as executive story consultant. Thanks for the correction. The Facebook post credited SRR, and I never th...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #145: “Batman: The Movie”: What is “the director’s input”?

This was a fun review of the feature film and script. Thanks for watching it one more time for all of us. I never picked up on the fact that the movie script had Batman acknowledging his parents' murders at a press conference. That would have been an absurd breach of secret-identity protocol. You no...

Ross's Revived "Ronald Raygun"

Rodger Hunter Hall, impresario of the Facebook group "The 100% Truly Official Classic 1966 BATMAN TV SHOW. Accept no substitutes!" has shared a clip from a 1976 episode of "Monster Squad" that Julie Newmar evidently shared with him. The episode was written by Stanley Ralph Ross a...

Your explanation was excellent. Thanks very much for the primer! I'm still trying to justify my last hobby-related investment, in a home brewing setup, but you've got me even more intrigued about 3D printing. Keep up the terrific work.

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

When Minstrel appears incognito in the final Gotham Stock Exchange scene in "Barbecued Batman?" I believe he's wearing Bookworm's glasses.

Re: My version of the 66 Gas Gun

Incredible work. I'm fascinated by 3D printing but know very little about it. Was the gun printed as single piece? Two mirror-image halves? More pieces that were then assembled? Is it solid or hollow?

Re: Bat X-Ray Deflector Prop

So the snapshot feature in VLC doesn't work? If not, did you try CMD OPTION 3 to do a scap? VLC lists the episode files in "My Videos," but I can't get it to play them. And the Mac OS "TV" app, which plays the episodes by default, doesn't allow screen caps: Pressing CMD-OPTION-3...

Thanks tons. I've used VLC for years but thought there was some kind of copy protection on the Apple TV videos.
