We’re celebrating two years! Batman is celebrating… well, we’re not sure how many. But there’s a new Riddler in town, and he’s got a mustache! The question mark on the Riddler’s costume is appropriate, given how many questions are raised by this arc: John Astin isn’t necessarily inferior to Frank Gorshin, but how do their performances differ? How might Gorshin have handled this script? Why didn’t Gorshin appear in the 2nd season? How do three intersecting cuts of a pie give one seven pieces? Why was the charity money for Batman’s anniversary put in, of all things, a golden calf? Is sodium dichloride really used to seed clouds? Also, we look at a couple of new contributions by Nelson Riddle in this arc, the uncredited cast member who had bit parts in several all-time classic films, and much more. Plus, the Well Paid Scientists' version of the Batman theme, and a bagful of Batmail, including yet another burning question: Why is the character of Batman such a good fit for humorous takes?
