While Batman and Robin are climbing the wall of the Last Longer Warehouse, just after they stop to talk, the string holding Robin's cape up suddenly either breaks or comes loose and his cape immediately falls down (towards the wall), revealing they are not actually climbing upwards. See more »

BATMAN TV gets its Joker: From Latin Lover Matinée Idol to Grim, Grinning and Ghoulish, Green-Haired Giggler!!
28 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

................We Have Seen............

Yeah, Batman and Robin are able to thwart their captors by using the arsenal that is the Utility Belt. Once again Joker and Company escape and return to their hide out in "an abandoned Coney Island-like Amusement Park. In a serious moment, Joker swears vengeance, "by all that is funny!" The Climax of this battle with the Joker comes when the Joker Gang attempts to steal a newly constructed, just launched, Ocean Liner. Batman & Robin successfully end he Joker's Crime Spree because of their taking notice of the cork of the bottle of bubbly being used to Christen the ship.

Once again, the whole story divided into the two evenings' tele-viewing, must be seen to fairly evaluate the caper. When all was said and done, we were treated to a most well written, well executed and most amusing episode. For, if it was not amusing to us on the multi-faceted 'Camp' humor and Comic Book Hero levels, than it would have been a failure. Obviously, it was not.

Launching the exploits of The Joker to the Family Hour Televiewers of that Winter In The Year of Our Lord, 1966, came out nearly flawlessly. They had established that he was an old 'Arch Enemy' by having him in 'The Big House' at the beginning of the story. The Chacteristics of chalk white skin and green hair,no doubt deeply etched the character in the public's collective mind.

And we cannot forget the performance of Ceasar Romero. In an interview some years later with Chicago's 'Old Time Radio' man, Chuck Schaeden, Mr. Romero said that he was not at all familiar with the Batman Comics Feature, and knew nothing of the Joker prior to his Guest Starring on the show. Well, Ceasar surely made up for lost time. His 'Joker' was very popular with the fans. Furthermore, the Joker was one of the most popular "Guest Villains" of the series' run. In total number of appearances, his Joker came in 2nd Place to Burgess Meredith's Penguin capers.
