Storyline

Egghead and Olga, Queen of the Cossacks, steal two pounds of Radium from the Gotham City Radium Center. Using it in their "Zapping Machine," they attempt to hatch an ancient Neosaurus egg, planning to feed the baby dinosaur a meal of Batman, Robin, and Batgirl. Surprisingly, the machine seems to be working. But when the egg cracks, the baby Neosaurus is more than they can handle. Written by Twenty Penguins

When Barbara asks another librarian if the library subscribes to the Southeastern Regional Journal of Applied Radiology, she is reminded that the library canceled its subscription when the city council cut their budget a year earlier. But Barbara can't be *reminded* of this, because a year earlier, she was still in college. See more »

Second broadcast is actually the third chapter
26 April 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"How to Hatch a Dinosaur" was intended to be the third Egghead/Olga broadcast but ended up second, stealing radium in order to hatch an egg that should give birth to a prehistoric Neosaurus. Jon Lormer is well cast as Professor Dactyl, and this time the one shot librarian working with Barbara Gordon is Mary Benoit as Petula. By the time the egg actually hatches, Egghead and his cohorts rush out to Chief O'Hara's waiting paddy wagon rather than face the wrath of an angry Neosaurus and its 2500 teeth. Audiences would have to wait six weeks for the second chapter, "The Ogg Couple," which would be the farewell for Egghead and Olga.
