The Catwoman manages to drug Robin. The junior member of the Dynamic Duo is now the Catwoman's mindless slave.

Lesley Gore performing her last Top 20 hit
18 May 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"That Darn Catwoman" was intended to be the finale for Julie Newmar's Catwoman, but was moved up in the broadcast schedule due to the presence of Lesley Gore, seen here singing her current (and last) Top 20 hit, "California Nights," one of the earliest successes for composer Marvin Hamlisch. Lesley is cast as the sexy Pussycat, over the hill rock and roll singer (at age 20!) turned Catwoman protégé, testing out the drug cataphrenic on Robin, which works to transform him into the opposite of what he was, now a lascivious criminal who gives Chief O'Hara (Stafford Repp) a shove he'd never forget. Catwoman embarks on a series of robberies to acquire a million dollar fortune for a specific purpose, even emptying the stuffed mattress of inventor Pat Pending (J. Pat O'Malley), whose valet (an unbilled Steve Franken) is named Rudy (as in Rudy Vallee!). The weighing ceremony for Prince Ibn Kereb of Gedallia (David Renard) is where Batman catches up with the gang, but is unable to fight back when it's the drugged Robin throwing punches. A gigantic mouse trap fit for a bat serves as the death trap, with Robin the one cutting the rope to become Batman's murderer! Writer Stanley Ralph Ross outdid himself with this one, extending to the name Ibn Kereb, which is the Arabic phrase for 'son of a b--ch' (the network having rejected the first name he came up with).
