The Green Hornet and Kato are in Gotham City to bust a counterfeiting stamp ring. Believed to be arch-criminals by nearly everyone, their midnight visit to Colonel Gumm at the Pink Chip Stamps Factory stirs alarm. Even Batman and Robin believe they are out for a piece of the action. Figuring the Green Hornet's goal must be the Gotham Gothic, a rare and valuable stamp, they trail him and Kato to the Pink Chip Stamps Factory. But when Colonel Gumm and his men make giant stamps out of the visiting crime fighters, it appears Batman and Robin will be doomed to the same fate. Written by Twenty Penguins

Despite Some Rubbish, This Is Cool
20 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

In the 1970s and 1980s, this two-part Bat-episode was my only exposure to The Green Hornet and Kato. The Green Hornet series (1966-67) was never replayed in Australia and other places so I just could not get my hands on it until 1992. Despite some cool Billy May music pumping away in it, I could not get into The Green Hornet series...however the episode The Ray Is For Killing is good.

The Green Hornet and Kato are more fun when up against people like Col. Gumm, rather than the TOO serious crims they delt with on their show. And being in a 50 minute adventure rather than a 25 minute adventure also works for them.

Granted, this two-parter has some rubbish going on, but what was going on when the cameras stopped rolling is 50% of the episode's appeal: Bruce Lee went a bit crazy with Burt Ward when making part two! All in all, I would call this cool but not the best of Batman.
