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

The Best episode of Batman
27 September 2006 | by (columbus, ohio) – See all my reviews

In this episode. The Green Hornet comes to town and tries to unfold a phony stamp making operation. Well as you know Batman & Robin is on the same case thinking that the Green Hornet & Kato is in on it. Little that they know that Green Hornet is a crime fighter too. In the end they wind up battling the bad guys and eventually each other. Both gets the best of each other, and it winds up to be the best action sequence ever in television history. I would love to see Batman on DVD so we can see history in the making. I'm sure everyone will enjoy if they can get a copy of this on DVD. You will love it as well as i do. The Green Hornet is already on DVD. Hopefully Batman will be too. The 1966 movie is on disc. Van Williams as the Green Hornet does a good job in this episode, as well as Bruce Lee as Kato. Will we ever see a display of action in day and age. I don't think so. Roger C. Carmel is good also as Col. Gumm. You will see Alex Rocco very good character actor as one of the henchmen. If it is available on disc then go out and get it your kids might just like it. It's better than what we have today on TV.
