Aired Tuesday 8:00 PM Nov 30, 1966 on ABC

Episode Recap

Shame, a conniving cowboy of crime, and his western gang comprised of Okie Annie, Messy James, and Rip Snorting, plan to build a super powered truck that will outrace even The Batmobile. Needing some additional parts for the truck, they swipe a racing car right in the middle of The Gotham City 500 Road Race! Shame returns to his hideout at the abandoned Westernland Amusement Park, where he befriends a small boy named Andy, who imitates a cowboy. Meanwhile, Batman and Robin have figured out Shame's scheme and Batman plants a story with DJ Hot Rod Harry about the new parts added to the Wayne Limousine. Shame listens to said broadcast on Andy's radio and prepares to hijack the limo with Okie Annie as bait!

Taking a drive in the limo, Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson and Alfred encounter a cow in the middle of the road. The three get out of the limo to move the cow when Shame and his pernicious posse emerge from the bushes armed to the teeth and they make off with the car. After Shame and crew have departed, The Batcycle, which had been following them for a mile behind them on remote control, arrives carrying The Alf-Cycle. Using a circuitous route, Alfred rides to The Batcave and Bruce and Dick follow suit in The Batcycle. Later on, The Dynamic Duo trace the vehicle to Westernland by way of Infrared Batdust, with which the Wayne limo's tires were cleverly coated but can only be detected by The Batmobile's specially tinted windshield. After a battle, The Caped Crusader and The Boy Wonder are knocked senseless by a falling chandelier. Shane takes them outside, stakes them out in the middle of the road and releases a herd of stampeding cattle in their direction, with intentions of trampling The Duo!
