Storyline

Batman agrees to let the Catwoman drug him. But he appears to have a headache and the Catwoman permits him to take an aspirin. After the drug is administered, Batman appears to assist Catwoman on her crime wave. However, the police receive anonymous telephone calls that enable them to pick up members of Catwoman's gang, including the drugged Robin. Meanwhile, the Gotham City police try to trace the hot line to the Batcave. Batman is there with Catwoman. He uses a device that foils the trace. Eventually, Batman reveals he hadn't taken an aspirin but his universal drug antidote that prevented the drug from working. Catwoman tries to flee on top of a warehouse near the Gotham River. Batman is in pursuit and corners her. But, unwilling to go straight, she falls into the river. Has she lost her life, or just one of her nine lives? Written by Bill Koenig

Trivia

Catwoman proposes marriage to Batman, but Batman demurs, saying that a wife would severely impede his crimefighting. In the comics, however, the Golden Age (1930s-50s) Batman did marry his Catwoman, and the marriage produced a daughter, Helena, who grew up to be the Huntress. The Crisis on Infinite Earths, however, wiped all three characters from canon. See more »

Goofs

Batman is in the Batcave and places an antidote for Robin on the desk before he leaves with Catwoman. When he places the antidote on the desk, the background behind the desk is of various computers. The camera cuts to Batman walking to the Batmobile, where Batman then leaves with Catwoman. The camera then cuts back to the desk, but this time the background behind the desk is of the service elevator. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: [narrating] When we last glimpsed the masked man-hunter, he was about to be snapped to death by a gigantic bat-trap. And a poor, drugged Robin as the unwitting tool of his destruction! Batman's only hope is to join forces with Catwoman. But we know he won't do that! Or will he? The incredible answer in just one moment!

The peak of Catwoman's desire for Batman
18 May 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Scat! Darn Catwoman" actually improves on the first chapter, Batman agreeing to become Catwoman's partner so that Robin won't be guilty of murder. The drug cataphrenic, which successfully turned the Boy Wonder into Pussycat's paramour, does the trick on Batman, who immediately turns the sexy Catwoman around and constantly refers to her as 'Cat Baby!' She now has acquired enough cash to head off to the Old Criminals' Home to see Little Al, played by the unbilled Allen Jenkins, longtime gangster of Pre-code Hollywood, who accepts the money for his copy of the plans to break into the Gotham City Mint, his parting line: "criminals just ain't genteel anymore!" Now with virtually everything she's ever wanted, Catwoman watches the cops haul away Robin and Pussycat (Lesley Gore), suggesting the Batcave as a cozy place to lay low until the 5AM rendezvous at the Mint. Once in their 'private paradise,' she's a willing accomplice for whatever Batman desires: "isn't there something that you wanna do, now that we're standing almost mask to mask this way?" He's ready to put his arms around her at the Mint when her henchmen show up, resulting in her priceless outburst: "your timing's in-CREDIBLE!" Unfortunately for Catwoman, Robin is now free of her drugged influence, and Batman too reveals that he was only acting all along, letting her play out her hand to find the chink in the armor at the Mint. She manages to flee in the Batmobile, leading a merry chase along a rooftop, until a 100 foot drop appears before her, a choice between death and prison. Her conversation with Batman now boldly becomes a marriage proposal, being a former criminal capable of aiding his fight against crime. What about Robin: "I've got it, we'll kill him!" Unwilling to turn over a new leaf, Catwoman reaches out to Batman but loses her grip, disappearing underneath the West River, never to show her face again (had the original broadcast order followed through). Cut in syndication is another Lesley Gore song, "Maybe Now," one of her collaborations with brother Michael Gore, already issued as the B-side of her previous single, "Treat Me Like a Lady," which only charted at #115. Robin almost gets to clinch with her Pussycat, who only resists a little bit: "I'm not the type of girl to kiss a boy on the first crime!" But it's the sexually charged banter between Julie Newmar and Adam West that makes this the most outstanding of all the Catwoman stories, at its absolute peak here, the felonious feline living it up believing the man of her dreams has gone crooked!
