The Penguin appears to have gone straight. (Evidently the citizens of Gotham City have short memories; he tried the same trick in season one.) Not only that, he has emerged as the leading contender for mayor of Gotham City, thanks to a little-known provision of the city charter that permits felons to run for elective office. Mayor Linseed, facing almost certain defeat, convinces Batman to run for mayor. This displeases the Penguin, who doesn't want to leave anything to chance. He lures Batman and Robin into a trap and, by episode's end, things don't look good for the Dynamic Duo. Written by

Paul Revere and the Raiders do a lengthy cameo in this episode as Paul Revere and the Ruders, a local rock group hired by the Penguin to entertain at his campaign fund-raising party. The very popular 1960s group perform two numbers, including an accompaniment to the Penguin to the tune of "Yankee Doodle". See more

Plenty of girls and bands and slogans and lots of hoopla, but remember, no politics. Issues confuse people.
