It's even funnier when you hear that the crew basically let that part go on longer than it needed because they had grown tired of Burt Ward's attitude on the set.Gernot wrote:BOTH of the Sandman fights were great, Bob! My wife and I watched them recently on ME-TV, and she loved when the henchman kept bouncing up after Batman hit him into the mattress!Bob wrote:The "Sandman" fight in the mattress factory or the first fight from "Pop goes the Joker" when Robin landed in the pink goo
And I always cracked up with Robin yelling, "HELP!" when Egghead was giving him that egg shampoo!clavierankh wrote:What about the egg fight with Egghead?
I DID hear of Burt Ward's attitude problems, of course. Isn't that why Bruce Lee was advancing on Ward in their big fight?
Many of the Batfights were exciting, and I especially liked the ones where Robin would get beat up or hit over the head by a chair. But I'm going in a slightly different direction by saying that the most fun batfight in my opinion was the final batfight in the Batman movie, aboard the ship. I found it interesting and pretty funny how all the henchmen were eventually knocked overboard and everyone kept falling into the water, at one point even Robin! And then it was fun, and funny, to watch them trying to climb back up on board while pulling down the others in their way. I think at one point Batman was even in the water too? I liked seeing Robin fall in and get wet, I always found it humorous when he got "the short end of the stick" in fights.
Here's another Bat-fight that always cracked me up. It's the only one Aunt Harriet took part in, and she even had a sound effect with her hit!
Here's that fun Riddler underwater fight at the bank, too!
One thing I really liked about the movie's climatic fight scene was how Robin was able to tie up all of the bad guys while they were fighting amongst themselves to get back on the sub!
As for a favorite, I liked the little touches such as Bookworm's men removing their glasses or King Tut's fight in the BatCave.
And I always thought the extra henchmen were lookouts for Batman and Robin, in case they found the villains' hideout, which they usually did. The lookouts weren't very good at THAT or fighting, usually!
