Very well done. Too bad he didn't have on his formal Riddler suit.

ONLY Frank Gorshin could make that work!

Frank had it all, his physical performances are paired perfectly with vocal delivery only he could muster.

He certainly was - genius, that is. The other three parts of the Unholy Quadrinity were excellent and there would have been no show without them, but it seems as if Gorshin actually wrote and created the character from scratch. I'm not big on comic books, except for Mad Magazine, but I've seen drawings of the Riddler and HOLY DOPPELGANGERS, it sure looks like Frank.

Nice find. Love the outfits the ladies are wearing. How could they expect anyone to follow in this man's footsteps?

Frank Gorshin was a class act.....my folks saw him in Vegas in the '70's, and he sold out the house for many consecutive nights.....What a great Riddler....my second most favorite Bat-villain, next to Cesar's Joker.....

Hope that TV show he did, The Kopykats, shows up on YT someday - I'd love to see Frank's rendition of Kirk Douglas performing "A Boy Named Sue" again! :lol: :lol: :lol:
