The Batusi never looked better
15 May 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Pharaoh's in a Rut" opens with Bruce Wayne set to hurtle to his death on a hospital gurney, only to free himself from his bonds and escape going over the cliff. Undeterred, King Tut (Victor Buono) still intends to kidnap Bruce Wayne, only this time Batman is prepared to let him do it, using a dummy of Wayne asleep on the sofa, to be replaced by the Caped Crusader under the blanket. Captured by the pharaoh, he winds up joining the luscious Nefertiti (Ziva Rodann) under the dreaded Theban pebble torture, a thousand tiny pebbles dropped one by one on their heads, leaving them both empty headed slaves to King Tut's every whim. When he instructs them to dance to Bat music we get a second rendition of the first episode's Batusi, the enchanting Ziva as much a mover and groover as Jill St. John. On Batman's part of course it's all a clever ruse, and with Robin locating Tut's secret hideout it's finally just a matter of retrieving the Batmobile from the fleeing pharaoh. Another bop on the head may restore King Tut to his professorial profession, but it's only a matter of time before ancient Egypt, like the sphinx, rises again. Israel born beauty Ziva Rodann, nearing the end of her career, was only the first of King Tut's sexy consorts, her calls of 'Tut, Tut' most endearing, though he doesn't approve of her fondness for hot dogs!
