"The Funny Feline Felonies," continues the downward spiral of Cesar
Romero's Joker, here inexplicably teamed with Eartha Kitt's pitiful
excuse for a Catwoman, shot before her solo appearance in "Catwoman's
Dressed to Kill" but broadcast afterwards. The always reliable Romero
was not well served this final season, Joker more childlike in his
demeanor, while Catwoman couldn't have fared worse under the unlikely
casting of Eartha Kitt, catlike in her profession as a night club
performer, but all wrong for the costume on screen, Stanley Ralph Ross'
new interpretation a complete disaster. Joker's release from prison,
and subsequent kidnapping by Catwoman, leads to a caper involving the
search for a million pounds of gunpowder to blow a hole in the Federal
Depository (Joker's dismissed suggestion of dynamite would have been so
much easier), while luring the Dynamic Duo into a typical death trap.
Dick Kallman's Little Louie Groovy was a takeoff on Phil Spector (he
loses his nightshirt), Joe E. Ross (CAR 54 WHERE ARE YOU) putting in an
unbilled cameo as his agent, Ronald Long's Karnaby Katz suffering the
loss of his crib. It is as jaw droppingly bad as it sounds. David Lewis
makes the seventh of his eight appearances as Warden Crichton.
