  • The real guest star of this episode is not Roger C. Carmel (Col. Gumm) but rather Van Williams (the Green Hornet) and Bruce Lee (Kato), in a crossover from their own series, who are suspected by the Dynamic Duo and Gotham police as being criminals, rather than crime fighters.

Season 3: 1967–68[edit]

In Season 3, the format of episodes was somewhat at variance with previous seasons. There were few multi-part stories. At the conclusion of each story, the guest villains of the next story would usually make an uncredited appearance in the final scene. For example, Egghead is seen riding into town, literally, at the end of "Louie, the Lilac". A notable "spin" on this idea were the "linked" episodes "Ring Around the Riddler" and "The Wail of the Siren". In "Ring Around the Riddler", the Siren has an "introductory" scene assisting the Riddler in his criminal caper and briefly mentioning having her own plans for Commissioner Gordon. Batman subsequently defeats the Riddler, and the Siren returns in the tag to start her own caper, which is the basis of "The Wail of the Siren", really a separate story altogether. Two major cast changes occurred for the final season: Yvonne Craig joined as Batgirl, and Eartha Kitt replaced Julie Newmar as Catwoman.
