Though Batman escapes his watery trap, Robin is left in the hands of King Tut. The deluded villain still believes that Lisa Carson is really Queen Cleopatra, and calls Lisa's father to demand a ransom of $8,300,487.12, the mortgage on the Pyramids. Using the Jolly Jackson radio show to communicate, Tut negotiates the terms of payment with Batman. However, the villain most likely intends to keep both the money and Lisa, and has further plans to fry the Caped Crusaders in his royal boiling oil. Written by Twenty Penguins

Victor Buono enjoyed overacting as King Tut
7 July 2019 | by ebertipSee all my reviews

The real King Tut died at about age 19 and never met Cleopatra, but this is tv's Batman, and Buono is really into the spirit of the show. Oddly, there really is an Egyptology program at Yale, afflicted by scandal involving a senior professor in 2013-2014. The show has sexual tension between Batman/Wayne and the daughter of Gotham's second richest man, John E. Carson. Carson agrees to pay a ransom to Tut to reclaim his daughter, with information relayed through the radio talk show of obnoxious Jolly Jackson. Batman does the talking but Jackson requires Batman to answer a trivia question (ANSWER is David Balfour. The quote has some relevance to later Batman). Curiously, Mayor Linseed (play on John Lindsay) was missing, said to be off at the Asian front (Vietnam?). The show aired in March 1967 when the real Lindsay was up to his eyeballs in city problems. Buono would play the Captain in Who's Minding the Mint later in 1967. Buono played some good villains in Wild Wild West and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, but his Tut is classic. This Batman episode has a few Star Trek alums.
