Random but awesome lists such as this are why I love Topless Robot. One of their nerd-savant writers put together a list of “The 10 Best ’60s Batman Villains Who Should Make the Leap to Comics,” and it’s brought me back to my grammar school days, a time when my older brother and I would watch these Batman episodes together, with enthusiasm. I went as far as buying a book that catalogued every single episode; this wonderful text (which has since been lost in the black hole that is my parents’ attic) even had a comprehensive list of all the “Holy ____” that Burt Ward’s ‘Robin’ said. “Holy Bat-thermal underwear!” “Holy Davey Jones!”
Initially, I had one major complaint against Topless Robot’s list, but a little research showed that one of my favorite baddies, Falseface, did in fact appear in one Batman comic issue.
So, I stand corrected. That little unfounded indiscretion forgotten, this list deserves your eyes, without question.
Are these Batman episodes on DVD? I gotta get on that.
