King Tut has been predicting crimes, then secretly making sure they happen in order to gain the police's confidence. He hopes to then send them on a false lead while he commits the crime of the century. After failing an attempt to discover Batman's true identity, he gives his biggest prediction - a jailbreak of several super criminals. While the entire police force is sent to the penitentiary, Tut nabs a collection of priceless Egyptian scrolls from the Gotham City Library. The scrolls contain the key to an ancient statue, rumored to give its possessor control of the universe. Written by Twenty Penguins

A sign at the Gotham City Soccer Stadium advertises a match being played between teams called Hawks and Doves. This was a subtle (and for the series) rare topical reference. At the time of the series, the names were especially common metaphors for those who supported (Hawks) or opposed (Doves) warfare or military activity. See more »

"He who knows he has lost has had it!"
3 May 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Unkindest Tut of All" marks the fourth appearance of Victor Buono's King Tut, following a trio of two part episodes the first two seasons. This time our famed Yale professor gets a bump on the head at a love-in, and as Tut becomes a prognosticator of crime, setting up the theft of a priceless set of Egyptian scrolls at Barbara Gordon's library, while the police are away on a wild goose chase. One of his Tutlings manages to bug the Batmobile, enabling the monarch to decipher the location of the Batcave, right under Stately Wayne Manor, meaning that Batman and Bruce Wayne are one and the same! Buono is, as always, an absolute joy in the role, tossing off what appears to be ad libs directed at the square Batman and dullard Bruce Wayne. Originally scripted by Stanley Ralph Ross to be a single two part storyline that ended up being made separately, the connection between the two the twin dummy used to fool the Egyptian, his squeaky voiced moll played by pretty Patti Gilbert. This episode's one-time-only librarian is played by Cathleen Cordell, about to die of strangulation while Batman goes off on yet another lecture on good citizenship!
