Storyline

Commissioner Gordon appears to have been assassinated during the opening of a new bridge. A copy of Hemmingway's 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' nearly blows up the Batmobile. Both incidents are clues to the Bookworm's latest scheme. Batman and Robin interrogate The Bookworm's henchwoman Miss Limpet but deduce she is leading them into a trap. And while Batman intends to walk right into it, it is Robin who falls first. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Trivia

This episode featured the first of the many "head-out-the-window" cameo appearances that would become a hallmark on "Batman" during its' first two seasons. A well-known celebrity would stick their head out the window as Batman and Robin were climbing up the side of a building and exchange a few lines of dialogue with them. In this first case, the cameo was Jerry Lewis. Other celebrities would include Art Linkletter, Sammy Davis Jr., syndicated newspaper columnist "Suzie Knickerbocker" (Aileen Mehle), Van Williams and Bruce Lee (as the Green Hornet and Kato), and, on Christmas week of 1966, Santa Claus (in the person of Andy Devine).

Goofs

When the book bomb is ejected from the Batmobile and explodes in the air, the shot of it exploding in the air clearly shows the explosive hanging from a long rope of some kind. See more »
