Storyline

The Penguin steals a priceless folio of famous parasols from the Gotham City Library. He plans to wager the $10,000 earned from its ransom on a rigged horse race. Aided by his partner-in-crime Lola Lasagne, he disguises the favored entry Parasol as the unknown "Bumbershoot," then enters a painted glue factory horse as "Parasol". With everyone betting their money on the fake horse, it looks like the Penguin will make a fortune when the real Parasol wins the race. But he wasn't counting on a last-minute entry of Bruce Wayne's, the horse Waynebow, ridden by none other than Batgirl. Written by Twenty Penguins

Better Than Part One
23 June 2018 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Continues on from last week's Penguin/Lola Lasagne adventure.

This episode gives less screen time to Lola (great!) and more time to Adam West playing Bruce Wayne (instead of Batman).

When the 1966 Batman series ended I am told that Adam West was asked to play James Bond in Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)...but West turned down the role because he felt the role should be played by a British actor.

But the general suave nature of Bruce Wayne, seen in this episode, makes the viewer think that West would have made a really wonderful James Bond. Too bad he turned down the offer...and he later admitted to regretting the decision.

But away from all this, the later sections of A Horse Of A Different Color feature some outstanding location filming where Batgirl looks better than ever! All in all, a knockout Part Two that is much better than Part One.
