Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by "Millwheels show sketch". And, where in the film did you see "Landin, Fogel, & co."? I didn't notice it.
Scroll above in this thread. Also put on by Washburn High and involving '66 Batman.

1--What was it about the show that motivated them to do all this? What did they enjoy so much about it?

2--Did they 'get it,' the vibe of the show, right away? I mean, was the idea for their own film there pretty soon after the premiere or was it a gradual momentum after the first few weeks?

3--Was the 'Washburn Newsreel' a nod to the serials?
Noted!
Here's a couple of questions...
1. Would any of the cast and crew consider themselves "can't miss" views of Batman when it was on ABC?
2. If so, did they perceive a change in the direction of the series over time (i.e. from one season to the next), and did they enjoy that?
3. Did any of the cast and crew read Batman comic books of the period? How did they compare the comics to the series--if at all?

Thanks in advance, guys!

Ah Ok. In a graphic so not searchable! I guess this was their name for an annual talent show or something?

From what I see in the yearbook, yes - talent/variety show.

Thanks for sharing that! In my opinion, it was better than some Season 3 episodes, even some of Season 2!

Impressive editing, fun acting and very clever writing with the narration!

cheers
