I'm sure you are, Jaws63. Now, just relax. A quick inhale of some Bat-gas, and we can all return to the city..." (sorry - no offense intended - just couldn't resist the line.) I kinda remember what you are talking about but it has been so long that I'm sure if my memory does recall it, it must have been during a syndicated re-run back in the days when I wasn't inhaling as much bat gas.Jaws63 wrote:I just did a quick study of the pilot, the scene I was referring to in the previous post I said had no dialogue I think it did have other dialogue the more I think about it. Riddler races down the staircase "Stop...Stop that rediculas bickering, Batman"s had time to solve the clue". After this phrase there's other dialogue(not sure what), but one of the henchmen say's somebody's coming(this is what's cut), because Riddler stares right at the henchman sitting at the table and say's "Hurry into the manhole(the music slows) and like I said, everone follows Riddler down the manhole...some man(bigfoot LOL)walks past not realizing the manhole cover being sealed(the yellow bat, changes the scene)Narrator speaks "what are the fiendish Riddler and the molehill mob up to now. (and the show goes on as we know it)
This is about the fourth time I've written about this, twice on the old forum. Now no one has confirmed they remember this scene, but I'm 100 percent sure I'm right about this.

The bank robbery scene in "That darn Catwoman" has struck up many a conversation in the old forum, you'll notice in the end credits of this episode, a bank teller is credited for her roll..so this scene does exist. I seem to remember someone uploading the Bank robbery scene some time ago in the batlinks column of the old forum, This thread has Ironically disappeared from the old forum along with all our old posts(what's up with that anyway?). Anyhoo, from this missing bank scene(I mentioned this once before)I believe this is where Robin makes a pass at Catwoman which I thought was pretty funny.
The Dozier narration is on youtube, but it's against board rules to link to episodes or parts of episodes, so I'll PM you.clavierankh wrote:I don't think there was a Dozier narrated opening in the pilot.
Even more bizarre! I was taken to see "Winnie-the-Pooh and the Honey Tree" at the cinema just around the corner from the one screening the "Batman" movie in its Australian premiere season, in August 1967!

The (cut) Major Terry scene appears on Page 57 of the movie script and begins:
176 INT. SQUADRON OFFICE - NIGHT
Lone officer on duty, one MAJOR TERRY, passing the time building a model airplane. On the desk a box labeled on one side "Plastic Model Kit" and on the other "Any Child Can Do It." Beside it, a large tube of model airplane glue. His phone RINGS, he picks it up.
Duty Officer, Major Terry.
177 PHONE CONVERSATION - MAJOR TERRY AND ROBIN
Emergency! Airbourne [sic] kidnapping!
Major Terry is instantly on the ball at that.
Good gravy ! Give me the data!
Six criminals with Jet-Pack Penguin Umbrellas! Estimated altitude, twenty-two hundred!
About one-two-oh! Light cloud cover!
We'll nab 'em!
Be careful, Major! They're carrying two victims! Don't shoot, just force them down!
Major Terry puts down phone, picks up microphone and flicks switch.
