Holy Rewatch Batman! "An Egg Grows in Gotham"/"The Yegg Foes in Gotham"
An egg-cellent debut by Vincent Price as the egg-ceptionally devious villain Egghead! The Bat-rewatch does "An Egg Grows in Gotham"/"The Yegg Foes in Gotham."

An excerpt:
More problematic is Chief Screaming Chicken. There’s a fine line between satire and offensive stereotyping, and this episode just keeps dancing all over it. Mind you, there are some brilliant moments. The genuine American Indian blankets made in Japan bit is hilarious, and Batman’s story about Screaming Chicken’s time as a bottlewasher when someone told him to go back where he came from, and Robin sadly notes that this country is where he came from is a biting bit. But there’s the egg-scruciating thing where Screaming Chicken talks like a not-too-bright five-year-old. The fact that it was, at this point, pretty well entrenched in screen portrayals of Natives (especially in comedy) doesn’t make it any less horrible.
