Did You Know?


"Lisa Carson" was the maiden name of writer Stanley Ralph Ross' wife. See more »


In the batclimb scene, as Suzy Knickerbocker leans out of the window, her earrings hang to the side rather than downwards, revealing the camera trickery. This may well be deliberate, however, given the show's tendency to poke fun at itself. See more »

This two-parter is loaded with an incredible number of amazing comedy scenes making it some of the most amusing screen entertainment (small screen or big screen) of all time:

One: At the start of act one Batman's too sophisticated dialogue has the cop at the station confused.

Two: As B&R are climbing a building, a funny woman sticks her head out of a window.

Three: Batman encounters a partly-hanged man and forgets to un-hang him.

Four: King Tut calls Robin "Spunky".

Five: King Tut has an amusing phone conversation with a rich man.

Six: Batman has an amusing conversation with the same rich man.

Seven: Tut makes fun of Robin when Robin gets angry. Tut calls Batman "the cowled cornball".

Eight: Bruce Wayne has a funny closing scene with sexy Lee Meriwether.

On top of the comedy, we have King Tut's two thugs (a black guy, a white guy) who seem to attract more attention than most thugs in this series as these two guys just seem to react to what is going on very well.

We have Lee Meriwether proving she has a lighter side not seen in Irwin Allen's The Time Tunnel.

We have Gordon mentioning his daughter...who is yet to appear in the series.

Granted, the rooftop set looks cheap, but that is the only negative in this simply outstanding two-part episode!
