The Mad Hatter has escaped from prison, and is on a quest to add Batman's cowl to his collection of hats. He attends Gotham City's annual headdress ball disguised as the Three-tailed Pasha Of Panchagorum, and snatches a large ruby off of columnist Hattie Hatfield's headdress. The villain makes a getaway, but not before turning Batman's cowl pink with a radioactive spray. He trails Batman to the Atomic Energy Laboratory, knowing he will have a chance to snatch his cowl when it is removed for decontamination. Written by Twenty Penguins

Commissioner Gordon: Who knows what disaster lies ahead when a man of the Mad Hatter's twisted tendencies is loose in Gotham City. And who knows what lies in store for you, Batman, he'd stop at nothing to add that cowl to his horrific horde of headpieces.
Batman: [touches his cowl for a moment] The loss of my cowl is secondary, Commissioner. But not the fate of Gotham City.

Poor Episode Only Just Saved By Flashy Lab Set
20 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I don't like doing negative reviews of this series because Batman is so close to my heart. But we have to tell it like it is. I like a lot of the humour in this series but a storyline involving getting Batman's cowl is just too stupid for words. Help! I have seen David Wayne (The Mad Hatter) in other things and he is normally just fine, but I don't like him in this role.

Towards the end when I was getting really bothered by the show, something happened to save the day: the set for The Atomic Energy Laboratory! Only 20th Century Fox in the 1960s could produce a flashy set like that! In fact, when Batman and Robin were placed in the chamber it looked a bit like another Fox series of the day: Land Of The Giants. Note the two giant test tubes outside the chamber.

Those with no interest in set design will probably find this review rather hard to take, but a nice set is all I could see in The Contaminated Cowl.
