Corrupting the youth of Gotham City
21 May 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Joker Goes to School" is hardly the silly episode promised by the title (god help the third season), but another twisted Joker gag built upon corrupting the youth of Gotham City. One machine is discovered dispensing 20 silver dollars for a dime, another negotiable stocks and bonds, the Dynamic Duo wondering if indeed the green faced felon is involved. Demonstrating slides of the grinning gargoyle to the student body of Woodrow Roosevelt High, who should show up but the jovial jackanapes himself, loitering lawfully for just under two minutes, a clever ruse to avert suspicion elsewhere, where slot machines commit armed robberies! (once out of prison, Joker bought a controlling interest in the One Armed Bandit Novelty Co.) His partners in plunder are the Bad Pennies gang, all high school dropouts, hiding out behind the Easy Living Candy Store just off school grounds, orchestrating the robberies by automation when not devising clues to confound Batman. Our intrepid heroes are unaware that head cheerleader Susie (Donna Loren) is actually in league with Joker, luring her services by promising the finer things like furs or perfume. A clever ploy brings down the Caped Crusaders, ready to fry at midnight, trapped helpless in two electric chairs! Gorgeous Donna Loren, indeed still a teenager, was a singer and former Beach Party veteran, another cheerleader played by Linda Harrison, future Nova in "Planet of the Apes," a student body member played by Tim O'Kelly, later seen opposite Victor Buono's King Tut during the second season, but remembered as the deadly accurate sniper in Boris Karloff's "Targets."
