Holy Rewatch Batman! "That Darn Catwoman"/"Scat! Darn Catwoman"
Catwoman turns Robin evil! Plus Lesley Gore sings two songs for no compellingly good reason! The Bat-rewatch makes its triumphant return with "That Darn Catwoman"/"Scat! Darn Catwoman."

An excerpt:
A good story could be told about how Robin and Batman can both be turned bad, but it’s done in by the simply terrible acting of the principles. Adam West doesn’t actually do too bad with it, and he’s helped by the fact that Batman is faking. Robin isn’t faking, though, and it’s just awful. His bad-guy act is even less convincing than it was in “He Meets His Match, The Grisly Ghoul,” starting with his doofy laughter and only getting worse as the two-parter progresses. At least he suffers dizzy spells so he can be asleep and off-camera for big chunks of the story, which is all for the best.
