Holy Rewatch Batman! "A Piece of the Action"/"Batman's Satisfaction"
It's the Batman-Green Hornet crossover in which we're almost sorta-kinda convinced that maybe Robin could take Kato in a fight! (Robin totally could not take Kato in a fight.....) Plus hey, it's Harry Mudd! The Bat-rewatch does "A Piece of the Action"/"Batman's Satisfaction."

An excerpt:
There’s not enough of Kato fighting, which is half the appeal of The Green Hornet in the first place, and it’s laughable to see him face off against Robin, because you just know that the Boy Wonder doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning that fight. (It doesn’t help that Burt Ward plays the fight scenes with tremendous hesitation, borne of a practical joke on Lee’s part. Having heard that Ward boasted often of his barely-there karate skills, Lee acted all surly around Ward, scaring the other actor and making him fear he might actually get hurt. One of the crew, who was in on the gag, referred to their confrontation as the black panther versus the yellow chicken.)
