The Penguin steals a priceless folio of famous parasols from the Gotham City Library. He plans to wager the $10,000 earned from its ransom on a rigged horse race. Aided by his partner-in-crime Lola Lasagne, he disguises the favored entry Parasol as the unknown "Bumbershoot," then enters a painted glue factory horse as "Parasol". With everyone betting their money on the fake horse, it looks like the Penguin will make a fortune when the real Parasol wins the race. But he wasn't counting on a last-minute entry of Bruce Wayne's, the horse Waynebow, ridden by none other than Batgirl. Written by Twenty Penguins

Did You Know?


Yvonne Craig talked the producers into letting her do her own horseback riding as Batgirl. She quickly changed her mind, however, when she saw the large, fierce horse. A male jockey doubled the scene for her. See more »


Bruce Wayne: [on phone, talking about a recently recovered priceless folio] Yes, Alfred tells me that Batman returned it just a few minutes ago, Miss Gordon.
Barbara Gordon: [on other line] Well that's incredible! Batman said he'd have it back within an hour, but...
Bruce Wayne: You didn't believe him?
Barbara Gordon: Well, I'm afraid I'm still naive enough to believe the impossible can't be done. I guess I owe Batman an apology.
Bruce Wayne: A word of thanks should do, at the proper time.

Riding the jackass

"A Horse of Another Color" continues the Penguin storyline from last week, the waddling bird planning to replace Wally Bootmaker (a play on Willie Shoemaker) in riding Lola Lasagne's filly Parasol in the Wayne Foundation Memorial Handicap (disguised as Bumbershoot), with Dick Grayson posing as a Spanish jockey riding the real Parasol, and Batgirl atop the only other horse in the race, Waynebeau, entered by Bruce Wayne himself. Yet another one time librarian working with Barbara Gordon is an unbilled Constance David as Myrtle. The most recognizable face belongs to Racing Secretary Herbert Anderson, from DENNIS THE MENACE, previously seen in "The Clock King's Crazy Crimes."
