Storyline

The Catwoman manages to drug Robin. The junior member of the Dynamic Duo is now the Catwoman's mindless slave. Batman is on the trail of the sultry villain, but he's hampered by the fact he can't harm his partner. Eventually, Batman is trapped by the Catwoman. He's in a giant trap and Robin is cutting the rope that will cause a giant mouse trap to snap on Batman. The Catwoman offers Batman a choice -- die by Robin's hand or agree to be subjected to the same drug. Written by Bill Koenig

Trivia

Prince Kereb's name was originally Ferdberger. Writer Stanley Ralph Ross said network censors thought the name sounded dirty, even though he named the character after a friend with the same name. Kereb is actually the Arabic translation for Son Of A Bitch, and Ross said the network never picked up on it. See more »

Lesley Gore Brings Substance, Delight to Pussycat Role
25 April 2019 | by tr-83495See all my reviews

Radio was still going "Bat" crazy until this season of Batman and rock jocks told their audiences about some of the heavies guesting on the camp show.

My biggest recollection is a local DJ announcing Lesley Gore in 1967 as her new song "California Nights" ramped up the charts on its inevitable way to #5. This was Marvin Hamlisch's second success with Gore deciding to record a song of his. The first was the (almost) top ten "Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows". This was also Gore's ninth top twenty hit since mid-1963, so she was the most well known young female singer in the United States.

The two Gore episodes sent Batman ratings higher and are still favorite playback episodes for the series. Gore and Burt Ward were a "small" couple and their evil side -- induced by cataphrenic -- worked well.

Julie Newmar was the tall and sexy companion to Adam West, as befitted the series. She was the quintessential Catwoman and deserved her own sidekick -- the Pink Pussycat.
