Storyline

The Catwoman manages to drug Robin. The junior member of the Dynamic Duo is now the Catwoman's mindless slave. Batman is on the trail of the sultry villain, but he's hampered by the fact he can't harm his partner. Eventually, Batman is trapped by the Catwoman. He's in a giant trap and Robin is cutting the rope that will cause a giant mouse trap to snap on Batman. The Catwoman offers Batman a choice -- die by Robin's hand or agree to be subjected to the same drug. Written by Bill Koenig

Trivia

Prince Kereb's name was originally Ferdberger. Writer Stanley Ralph Ross said network censors thought the name sounded dirty, even though he named the character after a friend with the same name. Kereb is actually the Arabic translation for Son Of A Bitch, and Ross said the network never picked up on it. See more »

IMO, the best episode of Season 2
3 April 2012 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

I'm not a huge fan of Stanley Ralph Ross; he tended to camp things up a bit. That said, however, he did the first Catwoman episode back in March 1966, and he has written what has to be the best episode of Season 2.

Basically, Catwoman has a sidekick, Pussycat, who manages to drug Robin and have him join her gang. The episode is about Batman's efforts to rescue Robin.

What makes this episode work so well is the overall pace of the story, and it plays more like a Season 1 episode. The cast also helps, especially pop star Lesley Gore as Pussycat. Eerily, Catwoman tells Pussycat that she was a washed-up 20-year-old singer; her "California Nights" that she sings in this episode was her last major Top 40 hit, released around the time of this episode. Ms. Gore, incidentally, was a nice of producer Howie Horowitz, which likely explains her casting.

Julie Newmar is in fine form here as Catwoman, and so is the rest of the cast. Overall, one of the best episodes of the series, and likely the very best of Season 2!
