Batman '66 in the Media

THE RING OF WAX:[]

The Riddler smuggles a ring of a revolutionary new Universal Wax Solvent, capable of eating through anything, into the country by hiding it inside a wax statue of Batman, which is intended for display at Madame Soleil's Wax Museum. In place of the wax Batman statue is a wax replica of the Riddler, which, at its unveiling, subsequently sprays the attending audience with a gun filled with paint, while a tape recorder announces two riddles. Inside his hideout at the Kandle Lite Kandle Factory, the Riddler and his henchgirl, Moth, melt the Batman figure into a vat of boiling wax; Batman and Robin solve the puzzles and arrive at the Gotham City Public Library and find the Riddler and his henchmen, Tallow and Matches, attempting to steal a rare book on the lost treasure of the Incas from the vault with the use of the solvent. A battle breaks out, but the Prince of Puzzles uses his Doctor Riddler's Instant Forever-Stick Invisible Wax Emulsion to glue two heroes’ feet to the floor, enabling him and his gang to escape with the book.

GIVE 'EM THE AXE:[]

As Batman and Robin are lowered into the vat of molten wax, the Caped Crusader uses the buckle on his utility belt to reflect a ray of sunlight into an open barrel of an explosive formula. The blast frees him and his trusty chum from their bonds, but also renders them unconscious. Believing his enemies to be dead, the Riddler and his gang head for the Gotham City Museum to break into the sarcophagus of the ancient Incan emperor Hualpo Cusi, which supposedly contains a long-lost treasure. Batman and Robin come to and track the Prince of Puzzles to the museum, but the building is locked, and only the Boy Wonder is small enough to fit through an open window. Inside, Robin is captured by Matches and Tallow and taken to the Riddler, who orders that the lad be tied to a medieval rack and stretched to death…
