BAT 77 Episode #07 - The Cat and the Clay / Freaky Friday

Post by BAT 77 » Thu Jan 10, 2019 10:32 am

So I discovered that I did take Batman's advice to always be prepared because I had a back-up copy of my recording session for this podcast after all. So without further delay...

Hi Bat77. First time listening to your show. Interesting podcast. But was there a glitch in the editing? You skipped an entire sequence from Birds of a Feather when Gigi lures Robin into an umbrella trap, picks him up and carries him to the Penguin vehicle and he's used as bait for Batman. That's a key sequence to the episode, and shows how much of an effective moll Gigi was.

cheers

Not a glitch in the editing. I didn't get that in my notes. But you're right. I'll remedy that for the next Bat Letters segment. I also need to mention Catwoman's backing music at the start of the Oil episode, because it was only after I listened to the playback of that clip did I notice the meow-like sounds coming from a synthesizer, which I thought sounded really cool.

I agree the Catwoman and Clayface were a pretty weird idea for a team up. Having them at odds, ala the Joker vs Clayface story in the early 60s might have been more interesting. Really, I wonder if the episode would have worked better as a Clayface solo story. With all the wild stuff that Catwoman's car could do, wouldn't it have made more sense to have Clayface's shape-shifting abilities responsible for those instead of a vehicle? Considering all the gadgets packed into Catwoman's ride, do you think there is an untold Batman/James Bond crossover where Catwoman seduced Q into making gadgets for her?

The mind swap between Penguin and Bat-Mite....Ugggh. GiGi looks like the Penguin stole Wilma Flintstones hairdo and earrings. Yeah, I know Flintstones was Hanna-Barbara and not Filmation, but still.
