Re: Other Great 60s Shows...

Presumably Hoyt Curtain who did most everything for Hanna-Barbera though that's not a given.

"Danger Island" also included Frank Aletter, who at the time was married to Lee Meriwether and had previously been in the series "It's About Time."

Re: Happy birthday to The Siren

A long, remarkable career for her and she has been a survivor. It is so hard to think of her to be the age she is now.

Re: Other Great 60s Shows...

The Golden Age of TV for me begins in 1955 with the debut of shows like "Gunsmoke" and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and represents part of a growing shift away from the live dramas of New York and more emergence of TV as a filmed storytelling medium. It's also when I start seeing more and more the fa...

Re: Where is Gotham City

That makes more sense than "Smallville" putting Metropolis in Kansas!

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #110: "The Impossible Crimes": Semple holds Stadd’s Feet to the Fire

And to add to my point about how the characters of Miss Alliance and Daphne should have been combined so that Miss Alliance could turn on Joker and then help tip Batman off as to where to nab him, this would also have taken care of the problem of the too-short tag since it could have given us a comm...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #110: "The Impossible Crimes": Semple holds Stadd’s Feet to the Fire

Well I enjoyed listening! Thanks first for pointing out that the deathtrap from the Penguin episode wasn't the only item from this script that Semple likely lifted (the point that made it into the Joker episode with Donna Loren later on). That kind of puts Semple's adamant rejection of the script in...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #110: "The Impossible Crimes": Semple holds Stadd’s Feet to the Fire

Before I dive into the podcast, I looked over Semple's memo and honestly I can't disagree with the bulk of his criticisms because I do find that they echo a lot of the things I found wrong with the script in terms of execution (the pointless red herrings at the beginning, the absurdity of Alfred as ...

Re: Where is Gotham City

Except that in Part 2 of the Joker/Donna Loren episode when the power goes out, Joker says, "Gotham City must be having a blackout just like New York!" Also there are a couple episodes where the establishing stock footage of Gotham City isn't New York but Boston!

Re: Courtroom scenes and other bat-law questions

Maybe *that's* why these criminals always get such light sentences, since Batman and Robin can never testify openly in court against them! (and thus they plea bargain out to light sentences and get out very quickly in time for another episode)

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #109: Louie the Lilac baffles, Bat-conference informs

Do we know if the replacement of Riddle with May a case of deciding a new sound was needed for Season 3 in terms of the format or a case of Riddle "moving on" and necessitating the replacement? Riddle I know spent the bulk of the 67-68 season doing all the scores for the Ron Ely "Tarzan" series.

Given Berle's early TV history fame, they should have made him the first Bat villain to try and escape dressed like a henchmoll!

To which I can only concur. That post is out of line and despicable and you Mr. "Limpet" should be ashamed of yourself.

Re: Script: THE SECRET OF THE IMPOSSIBLE CRIMES, by Leonard Stadd

It might have been Stadd's misfortune that this was an early script submitted where the things that would stand out as really bad for a show trying to set a tone probably led to it being rejected. (The stupid use of voiceovers, the fact that Gordon comes off looking bad with his "you're Batman!" con...

Re: "Batman Encounters King Kong" (June 1966)

Bruce Cabot of course was in the original "Kong" as Jack Driscoll. I just can't imagine how the heck they were going to pull that off because at the time if someone wanted to do *anything* Kong related, you needed to get permission from RKO-General the heirs to the original RKO Studio that had made ...
