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 Twenty Penguins

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 »

Stars, Music, Mystery And Colour
19 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

Good Lord! I am the first to review this? Considering the famous guest star present I would think the episode would of attracted more users to reviewing it? Anyway, it is interesting what people remember about a Bat-episode. I viewed this in 1989 and again this week. I always remembered that the show made good use of the colours red and black. I remembered that there was some well scripted mystery involved in finding Black Widow's house. The colours and the mystery were well worth remembering.

But other things stand out now as well: like the great Nelson Riddle music used in the teaser (the start). On top of all this we have Tallulah Bankhead playing Black Widow! Her comment about how "boring" Batman is made me laugh! And that voice of hers! So we have stars, music, mystery, colour and an all-round great part one. What could go wrong with part two? Everything it seems! Part two gets way too silly and you can blame Batman himself.

The camp humour of Batman was just fine in season one but it was increased in year two and, while Adam West in part two might be funny to watch after a couple of drinks, part two is not how I like this series to be.

But I stand by part one: a knockout! My favourite line in the show "Farewell SENIOR citizens"
