What's a grisly ghoul? That doesn't sound much like a title they would give to Batman himself (so unflattering!), but nothing else in the episode would make the title even remotely fit. I originally thought the episode probably brought in a rival criminal who came to blows with Joker, but nope!
Are there other episodes with rather odd titles that don't seem to fit the episodes' events?
My hobbies include gazing at the Siren and doing her bidding, evil or otherwise.
'She had a devastating, hypnotic effect on all the men.'--A schoolmate describing Joan Collins at age 17
He Meets His Match, The Grisly Ghoul. In other words: Joker meets his match (in Batman), The Grisly Ghoul (Joker again). Not a very good one by any stretch.
Synonyms for entrancing are: captivating, enchanting, magnetic, alluring, tempting, enticing, inviting, persuasive, and enthralling.High C wrote:'The Entrancing Dr. Cassandra." Nothing entrancing about her. She doesn't hypnotize people, so the title makes little sense.
She wasn't really captivating, enchanting or magnetic. I think she was 20 years past alluring (not trying to be mean, just honest). The rest are pretty much misses too. She could have been persuasive, but she comes across as kid of a jerk and rather mean, so that one is out.

AW should've played a crooked lawyer on MP or Dallas , would've been awesome........
I always interpreted it as "The Bow To The Bat" (what Catwoman ended up doing in a figurative sense), not as an absolute possessive/strict verb, so it does make sense in that light.Shemp wrote:"The Cat's Meow / The Bat's Kow Tow"
Kow tow [sic], kowtow = bow to, defer, grovel. The Dynamic Duo win (naturally), so "The Cat's Kow Tow" would make sense, but not the episode title they went with.
Purity and virtue-BATMAN!
Cowards run away!
Batman saves the day!
Also, Boy Wonder Robin.
Batman and Robin-caped crusaders at night!
BIFF! POW! BAM! BATMAN!
Defy what? We already know they will oppose anything coming from the villain end, so the title is just telling us something we knew for nearly two whole seasons (considering that "The Duo Defy" was the S2 finale).
"Rats Like Cheese"
What--specifically--is that referring to? It seems to imply bait, or an old cultural reference, but it has little to do with the episode's events or theme.
Satisfied with what? Batman begins this 2-parter operating from a number of assumptions about guest characters that were all as close to correct as possible, thus he had no reason to seek satisfaction. On the other hand, the title could refer to his being satisfied that the Gumm crimes would be solved. But that's still a weak title not making much sense, particularly after following part one's on-point title.
"Enter Batgirl, Exit Penguin"
Okay, yes, Batgirl makes her debut on the Gotham scene / encounters the principals, but Penguin dis not come close to exiting the scene until the end, so the title does not fit the plot well. Moreover, "exit" almost suggests a sort of final appearance for the character, when that was not close to true in S3.
