The Black Widow uses her cerebrum short-circuiting device to rob bank after bank in Gotham City. Batman and Robin soon catch up with her, but actually capturing the villainess proves harder than expected. Despite her nerve paralyzer spray, and two remote-control dummies that try to throw the Dynamic Duo off course, they finally make it inside the Black Widow's lair. But soon after entering, they are trapped in a giant web with two deadly black widow spiders. Written by
Did You Know?
This very unusual two-parter includes a sly parody of the omnipresence of television commercials, as every one of the show's sponsors is represented by at least one scene or line. Among them: the first episode begins with Black Widow pretending to innocently open a new account at a Gotham City bank, which the proprietor assures her is "An excellent way to start your day" (Kellogg's); she robs a branch of Beneficial Savings and Loan (another sponsor); Commissioner Gordon reassures a nervous bank owner that "You can be sure if it's Batman" (Westinghouse); Black Widow's hideout is located at 411 Larva Drive (Lava Soap); and, in the last scene, Black Widow concedes that "Only Batman knows for sure!" (Clairol). See more
