  • Robin steping to the bad side.

    10
    It's sometimes a common things in all sidekicks, eventurally they all go their own way to be their own person whether it's the path of good or evil. This episode is another favorate of mine, it's Batman at it's best. One of the things I really liked is just seeing Robin going bad it was hillarous and fun, there is just something about seeing superheroes steping to the bad side that interesting may'be because it somehow enhances their character or gives them even more freedom than before, I don't know whatever the case it works.



    But of course the real joy was just Catwoman herself whom is really crafty this time, the romantic and conflicting interplay between both Batman and her was always interesting to me because it was strangely sweet, both are just a good couple despite being dynamic opposites.



    Then we see the fight between Batman and Robin. Robin thogh wins by sucker punching him with a chair from behind, yeah that will always get a person. But of course as usual we would see a creatively daft death device at the cliffhanger a giant mouse trap, I'll admit as a kid I was worred from the fact that Robin was the one doing the cutting of the trap. Wonder how Batman is going to get out of this one.moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Pussycat: But I'm just a rock-n-roll singer. I'm not a crook.
      Catwoman: Oh, forget it. You're 20 years old. You're over the hill.

    • Pussycat: My name is Pussycat. I want to be alone with you, Robin.
      Robin: Alone with me? But why?
      Pussycat: I can see a very important part of your education has been grossly neglected.
      Robin: That's a funny-looking outfit you're wearing.
      Pussycat: I could say the same for you... big boy.

    • Catwoman: Now either you're gonna be a singer or an arch-criminal. You can't be both.
      Pussycat: Do I have a choice?
      Catwoman: No. You're too short.

    • Catwoman: If you agree to help me, I'll let you out. If not, Robin will cut the rope, the steel bar will snap, and you'll be divided into equal parts. In other words... (chuckles) you'll be besides yourself.

    • Catwoman: If you agree to help me, I'll let you out. If not, Robin will cut the rope, the steel bar will snap, and you'll be into equal parts. In other words... (chuckles) you'll be besides yourself.

    • Narrator: Holy Bat-Trap! What a decision! A life of crime or no life at all!! There's no way out! Or is there?? Tune in next week for the shocking answer!! Same Cat-Time!! Same Cat-Channel!!!

    • Batman: Catwoman, I find you to be odious, abhorrent and insegrievious.
      Catwoman: Dealing with you has expanded my vocabulary and increased my word power. A whole lot.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Batman: It appears she has the power to cloud men's mind.
      Batman borrows the tag line from another famous caped vigilante: The Shadow. Created for the pulp magazines in 1930, Kent Allard took the secret identity of playboy Lamont Cranston, gathered an organization of operatives, and fought crime as The Shadow. The Shadow originally had no psychic abilities, but his "power to cloud men's mind" was created for the radio series to explain how he remained effectively hidden. In the comic book Bronze Age, The Shadow was one of the inspirations for Bruce Wayne to become Batman.

    • Robin gives a speech at the Aaron Burr High School. It is an unusual name for a high school but not chosen without reason. Aaron Burr, the third U.S. Vice President, became the center of controversy when he killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel and was later charged with treason. In this episode Robin seems to turn on Batman, in effect becoming a traitor.
