Holy Rewatch Batman! "The Cat's Meow"/"The Bat's Kow Tow"
Catwoman is stealing voices! Featuring appearances by Chad & Jeremy, Steve Allen, Don Ho, Jay Sebring, and Joe Flynn! The Bat-rewatch does "The Cat's Meow"/"The Bat's Kow Tow."

An excerpt:
The plot in this one is—well, weird. Catwoman’s misdirection by doing a prank with riddles and umbrellas would have made more sense if the primary trio of male villains weren’t all in jail. The whole notion of stealing voices is bizarre in the first place, and it just doesn’t seem like it has much chance for success. The cliffhanger deathtrap is actually clever, and the high volume of the echo chamber is a rare case that gives the villain a good reason to be out of the room while the deathtrap is engaged. Having said that, Batman’s solution to get out is weak tea. And the opening with Bruce and Dick casually talking Bat-business in a live TV studio is just mind-boggling, given the contortions these two generally go to in order to preserve their identities. Also why does Catwoman steal Gordon’s voice, when that gives away that she hasn’t actually reformed? It’s an unusually stupid move.
