While West gets a shave at the barbershop, he becomes anesthetized by a hot towel and awakens in a fun-house. West soon learns of a series of kidnappings with clues leading to a traveling circus. There, West encounters the demented Dr. Miguelito Loveless with his latest invention, a powerful mechanized man. After the mechanical man knocks out West, places him in a coffin and throws the agent into a river, Loveless plans to hold a mock trial for his abducted victims and sentence them to death. Written by
The use of the "Monday's Child" poem that is integral to the plot switches the attributes of Friday's Child and and Saturday's Child. The traditional poem goes like this:
Monday's child is fair of face
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay See more »
Judge Alonzo Fairlie:
You're mad, of course.
Dr. Miguelito Loveless:
Observe the classical magistrate's mind at work, Delilah. The good judge does not understand me, ergo I am mad. Allow me to introduce myself sir. I am Dr. Miguelito Loveless. I plead guilty to being dictatorial, vain, short-tempered, occasionally unreasonable and, always... always a helpless admirer of all that is rare and fine in nature and art. But mad... no sir that I will not permit.

Even though Pike had appeared before in ,'Night of the Camera', this looks to be his first episode as he is introduced by Col Richmond to West so my thinking is that this was the first show that was filmed with Pike after Martin's injury.
It's funny that Loveless makes his final appearance in Wild Wild West at the same time that Arte is missing in action.
It's always great to watch Dunn as Dr Loveless and is with some sadness that we enjoy his appearance knowing that he wouldn't return.
Of course he's up to his old tricks with a mechanical man threatening West and using the cover of a traveling circus to cage his victims is typical Loveless stuff. Loveless to West was the Joker to the Batman.
And it's a shame that after this show we would see him no more
