THE LONDINIUM LARCENIES:[]

Commissioner Gordon travels across the channel to Londinium by request of the President to assist in a spree of baffling burglaries. Also aboard ship are Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, their manservant Alfred and Gordon's daughter Barbara. Alfred sets up a make-shift Batcave under a rented mansion near Londinium while Batman & Robin visit lord Ffogg and Lady Peasoup, who run a girl's finishing school that teaches their students a degree in shoplifting.

THE FOGGIEST NOTION:[]

Lord Ffogg and Lady Teasoup plan to steal a ship-worth of mod clothing material with which they can control the fashion world of Londinium. Fogg and his men subdue Batman, Peasoup and her girls grab Robin and Lady Prudence uses the paralyzing fog on Batgirl.

THE BLOODY TOWER:[]

Batman, ably assisted as always by Alfred, saves Robin from being crushed by a winch at the Tower of Londinium. He also rescues Batgirl from the dungeon at Ffog Place. But Robin gets stung by an African Death Bee as Lord Ffogg and Lady Peasoup get ready to steal the crown jewels at the Bloody Tower.

MONITOR'S NOTES: Bat-Trivia[]

  •  When he was signed for this episode, Rudy Vallee was enjoying something of a comeback, via his successes in the stage and film versions of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." Unfortunately, he also had a reputation for being famously difficult to get along with, a reputation which he proceeded to justify during the taping of this three-episode story. Yvonne Craig described it as nothing less than "three weeks in hell." Conversely, Glynis Johns was very easy to work with, according to Adam West, and got on well with everyone in the cast and crew.
  •  This was Madge Blake's final appearance as Aunt Harriet. She had all but retired due to illness and made only two appearances during the final season.
  •  The final season Robin was finally old enough to drive the Batmobile. Back in the 1960's the age to drive was 16, however the legal age to drive in Britain was 17 for a vehicle (with some smaller motorbikes placed at 16 years of age). So, Batman still wanting Robin to obey the laws while overseas, let Robin drive the Batmobiles before legal age in Britain.
