Batman - Trouble Identity television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to Gotham City and The New Adventures of Batman. Professor Norquist’s Inert Matter Converter allows him to turn garbage into valuable fabric such as silk or fur. Catwoman (Melendy Britt), donned in a bizarre costume designed for the series, not only steals the invention in front of Bruce Wayne (Adam West), Dick Grayson (Burt Ward), and Barbara Gordon (Britt) but also frames Batgirl for the crime by making a quick-change in the middle of the robbery to appear as Batgirl (rather than show up dressed as the hero throughout the entire heist).

Batman - The Cool, Cruel Mr. Freeze

In honor of Batman‘s 75th Anniversary we turn out attention back to the Dark Knight’s more memorable moments on the big and small screen turning our attention to The Adventures of Batman. One-half of the short-lived The Batman/Superman Hour, The Adventures of Batman featured the Dynamic Duo against Batman’s rogues gallery in 6-minute and 13-minute episodes. Casting Olan Soule as Batman and Casey Kasem as Robin the Boy Wonder for the first time, the pair would reprise the roles on Scooby-Doo and the various SuperFriends shows over the years.
