Batman '66 in the Media

THE CURSE OF TUT:[]

When an ex-Yale scholar of Egyptology sustains a head wound during a student riot, he suffers the delusion that he is none other than King Tut. Believing Gotham City to be a modern-day Thebes, the King of the Nile decides to take it over and make it his own; he arrives in the middle of Gotham's Central Park inside a gigantic Sphinx, and then announces his demands - including the deaths of Batman and Robin. The Dynamic Duo attempt to break into the Sphynx, but they soon become involved in a fight with Tut's ‘Tutlings’, Nefertiti, Vizier and Scrivener. Having escaped, Bruce Wayne then visits the Egyptian exhibit at the Gotham Museum amid much publicity, hoping that this will give him an opportunity to trap Tut and his henchmen. However, when the tour is underway, an ancient mummy comes to life and causes the crowd to flee in terror. Wayne calls for a doctor but the ambulance that arrives is driven by Tut's henchmen. They lure Wayne out into the hallway. He leans down to check the mummy for speech. One of Tut's henchmen sprays him to sleep with a sedative. The mummy is replaced by Wayne on the gurney and strapped down. They bind and gag Wayne with a thick terrycloth and cover his head with a stocking. They give one final, long spray of the sedative to Wayne's face through the stocking. He is now spirited away and at the mercy of the mummy - Tut in disguise…

THE PHARAOH'S IN A RUT:[]

Just as the gurney is about to plummet over the cliff, Bruce Wayne frees himself from the straps and grabs onto a guardrail, halting his impending doom. Donning his Batman outfit, he then appears on television and announces that he has saved Bruce Wayne's life and is now heading off to Egypt to conduct research. Tut sends his henchmen to Wayne Manor to carry out a second kidnapping attempt, but with the aid of a lifelike replica of his alter ego, Batman tricks the Tutlings into taking him to Tut’s hideout; however, while en route in the Royal Barque, he is discovered and knocked out. Later, at Tut’s hideout, the mad king subjects the Caped Crusader and his out-of-favour ex-queen, Nefertiti, to an ancient Theban pebble torture, in which the victim is driven mad by stones dropped onto their foreheads. At the Batcave, Robin and Alfred work out that Tut's base is an abandoned Egyptian Exhibition Pavilion; they set off in pursuit, although Alfred has to drive the Batmobile because the Boy Wonder is under-age. Meanwhile, Tut, now believing that the Pebble Torture has unhinged the minds of his captives, orders Nefertiti and Batman to perform a mad dance to wild "Bat-music"…
