Batman '66 in the Media

THE PENGUIN GOES STRAIGHT:[]

Attending a matinee performance at a Gotham City theatre, The Penguin foils a thief’s attempts to steal a ruby from the beautiful actress Sophia Starr. Then, at the Millionaire's Club, he stops two crooks from kidnapping millionaire Reggie Rich from a steam room. When Batman and Robin arrive, the Felonious Fowl announces his Penguin Protection Agency, which will protect the wealth of Gotham City's society crowd. The Dynamic Duo are immediately suspicious, believing this to be a plot to steal Sophia Starr's jewels, which Penguin has been hired to protect; they send Alfred Pennyworth, in the guise of an insurance company agent, to photograph the jewellery and switch Penguin's cigarette holder for one with a hidden microphone; however, a bug detector located in the handle of the Penguin's umbrella spoils Alfred’s ruse, and he only just manages to escape with the photos. After using the pictures to create fake jewels, the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder break into Sophia’s apartment in order to swap them with the real jewels, but they are caught red-handed by the Penguin and his Agents and charged with burglary....!

NOT YET HE AIN'T:[]

Batman and Robin avoid Commissioner Gordon and Chief O'Hara’s bullets by deflecting them with the bullet-proof soles of their boots; in the confusion, Batman cuts himself and his chum free using his Batknife, and they make their escape. Furious that the Dynamic Duo have escaped from his trap, the Penguin persuades his new society friends to make Commissioner Gordon rally a manhunt. The Dynamic Duo arrive at the Penguin Protection Agency, pretending to be insane and about to tear The Penguin and his henchmen, Eagle-Eye and Dove, to pieces. A fight breaks out, but then the police arrive and pursue the two crime fighters out of the building and into the street; the chase ends in a shootout in a nearby alley, in which Batman and his trusty chum are apparently killed. The Penguin is unaware that this is merely a ruse, as Batman has arranged for the policemen’s guns to be loaded with blanks; the Fiendish Fowl and his Finks steal the Batmobile and then speed off to plan their master plan, involving the Penguin’s marriage to Sophia Starr and the theft of his own wedding gifts!
