Really fun episode that seems a remake of Batman episode
12 July 2018 | by cyrilmorong-21783See all my reviews

This Avengers episode aired in April 1967. Here is a Batman episode that sounds similar from April 1966

Death in Slow Motion

Charlie Chaplin and the Keystone Kops raid the till at the newly opened Gotham movie theater. The culprits turn out to be 'The Riddler' and his gang in disguise. They lead the Dynamic Duo on a crime spree chase from Mother Gatham's Bakery, past the Gotham Library, and into a Temperance Party. At each of these events, the villains are accompanied by German film maker Van Bloheim who captures everything on celluloid.
