With his special truck finished, Shame goes to work on his final caper - the theft of four prize cattle worth over one million dollars. Batman and Robin deduce his plan, but realize they are too late to stop him and too slow to catch him. With little left to go on, the Dynamic Duo employ their "bat-logic" to try to figure out his next move. Written by

Laughing Leo, the used car salesman is standing next to a fancy hotrod telling an old lady in it what a great deal she made, and she says she certainly hoped so, since she drove all the way down from Pasadena. This is a nod to the popular Beach Boys song "The Little Old Lady from Pasadena", which featured a sweet old granny from Pasadena whom had a red Super Stock Dodge parked in her garage; she drove fast, hard, and was a terror, and indeed, as the old lady pulls out of Laughing Leo's, she guns it. The song was a hit two years before the show came on the air. (The song was originally recorded by Jan and Dean in March, 1964, prior to being performed live by the Beach Boys in August, 1964.)
