Storyline

The Penguin teams up with parasol collector Lola Lasagne. Together, they plan to rig the upcoming Bruce Wayne Handicap to make a fortune from Lola's prize racehorse Parasol. They break into Glu Gluten's Glue Factory to steal a condemned horse, planning to switch horses before the race and make their money by betting on the real Parasol. When Batman, Robin, and Batgirl catch up with them at the glue factory, Penguin sneaks outside and plasters the Batmobile with a sticky glue. Written by Twenty Penguins

Trivia

Lola Lasagne (Ethel Merman) mentions her three-week marriage to Luigi Lasagne. This is clearly Merman being a good sport; the joke refers to her very brief marriage to Ernest Borgnine three years earlier. See more »

Lola Lasagne was once a Lulu
25 April 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

The first of only five multi-part story lines from the third season, "The Sport of Penguins" not only boasts Burgess Meredith in his signature role but also adds Ethel Merman as Lola Lasagne, formerly Lulu Schultz, who doesn't like to be reminded of her past identity, her love of parasols matching his love for umbrellas (I fondly recall one blooper from years before: "and now the robust voice of Ethel Murmur!"). Returning henchmen are Lewis Charles as Armband, from the very first Penguin appearance in season one, and Joe Brooks as Visor, from the False Face two parter just a few weeks later. The plot dates back as far as 1936's "Charlie Chan at the Race Track," villains scheming to switch horses before the big race, betting on the long shot for huge winnings. This first chapter involves the search for a horse that can double for Lola's Parasol, winding up in Glu Gluten's Glue Factory for an old nag that might just fill the Penguin's bill (appearing uncredited as Gluten is Horace MacMahon, one of many familiar faces that surprised and delighted audiences of the time).
