Re: Batman POW pumps for your gal

Fun find! I'm afraid I don't know anyone who'd wear them, but they're apparently exclusive to Macy's. Choose the "Pow Bling" color option.

Re: Were the Green Hornet episodes the only ones not to have a Guest Villian in the credits?

With the difference in tones in both shows (especially by Batman's second season), how many of you can admit to watching both shows when they originally aired? I was nearly four when Batman premiered (my birthday is in March) and immediately captivated by the show. As a kid that young, I naturally ...

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

Thanks for watching this so I don't have to. :) From the sound clips you included, the only bits I think I'd want to see are those featuring Gorshin and those with Howard Morris as Dr. Sivana. I first knew of Morris as a voice actor (though I didn't KNOW I knew him at the time) playing Atom Ant on S...

Re: ‘66 poster promoting the yet to be released show

Who is the guy in the costume? Is that a prototype Batman costume from before the series was made? Photos are from a promotional event -- what we'd call a "watch party" these days--held the night the series debuted at Harlow's, a NYC dicotheque. Burgess Meredith and Bob Kane were on hand, and so wa...

Re: Did anybody notice...???

Another note on the Zodiac Crimes trilogy: There's a subtle nod to 1964's Dr. Strangelove in the silly seduction scene between Penguin and Venus in "The Penguin Declines," as Penguin urges Venus to conserve "precious bodily fluids." Penguin: Tell me, my heavenly hyacinth: When was the last time you ...

So great! Did you really have a Futura replica or is that post-production magic?

Re: Did anybody notice...???

There are a couple of funky pronunciations at play in the hot-air balloon cliffhanger that spans "The Puzzles are Coming" and "The Duo is Slumming." In Desmond Doomsday's narration of the first episode's conclusion, he refers to the altimeter tracking the balloon's ascent as an "alti-MEE-ter". In th...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #124: Penguinalysis: How would '60s comics fans have seen Meredith?

Another fun installment. Thanks to Tim, Paul and Kyle. Regarding Dozier and Semple's use of vintage comics in addition to contemporary ones as the basis for TV episodes, at least part of the story lies in Batman #176 (December 1965), an all-reprint issue focused on costumed supervillains. It include...

Re: Fiberglass Freaks Merch!

I'd love to spring for one of Fiberglass Freaks' signature products, but I'm afraid a T-shirt is all that's in the budget these days. The one I got a few years ago never fails to draw compliments.

Re: Batman Stuff You'd Never Part With...

This is the only remnant I have of first-wave Batmania. It was in the bedroom I eventually shared with my two brothers (the younger one having been born during the series run). I took possession of it sometime during my college years. I love it, but it's no museum piece. It's rusty and a little ding...
