Did You Know?


After Alfred is kidnapped, The Penguin threatens him by saying, "I'll teach you how to waddle like The Penguin do." This is a line from Burgess Meredith's song "The Escape", performed in character as The Penguin. See more »


Penguin kidnaps Alfred & brainwashes him. After doing so, he slips a fish hook into Alfred's coat pocket hoping it will reach the hands of Batman & Robin & lure them down to his pier so that he can trap them & kill them. How exactly did the Penguin hope that the fish hook in Alfred's pocket would successfully fetch the dynamic duo? He doesn't even know that Bruce Wayne & Dick Grayson are Batman & Robin; only that Alfred is Bruce Wayne's Butler. See more »

Knott A. Fish?
20 May 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Fine Finny Fiends" concludes the brief first season on a typically high note. Burgess Meredith's third two parter as The Penguin opens with Bruce Wayne's trusted butler Alfred (Alan Napier) strolling down the street in search of a bargain deal on caviar, coming upon a phony shop set up by Penguin's goons (Victor Lundin would return with Cliff Robertson's Shame for the third season). It's only a matter of moments before Alfred is unconscious due to Penguin gas, the cagey bird carefully brainwashing the butler so that he can learn where the Multimillionaires Annual Awards Dinner is located at the proper time. The news of Alfred's kidnapping is tempered somewhat by his quick return to Wayne Manor, but with a decidedly odd twitch that signals all is not right with their trusted associate. A fish hook planted by The Penguin brings the Dynamic Duo to the waterfront's South Pier, run by Knott A. Fish, but wind up trapped in a vacuum room where the oxygen is being sucked out at high speed. Knott A. Fish has a moll this time, a beautiful blonde called Finella, played by Julie Gregg, modeling one eye popping bathing suit after another (she would get unbilled bits in "Green Ice," plus the 1966 feature film). Bill Williams appears in both chapters as an unnamed Multimillionaire.
