Penguins live where it’s cold, but somehow the pairing of the Penguin and Mr. Freeze never came about on the TV show. But Jeff Parker made it happen in the second issue of the Batman ’66 comic book! In the same issue, he gave us another logical pairing, Chandell and the Siren. This time, we review the issue.

Also, we take a closer look at the 1966 memo from William Dozier to Howie Horwitz, which laid out ten rules of thumb for the making of the show. Were all the points good ideas, and were they adhered to over the run of the show?

PLUS: The Beatbox Saboteurs’ version of the Batman theme, winners of the “Joker’s Utility Belt” D’oh Prize, and your response to our discussion with Scott Sebring in episode 133 - including a closer look at that astonishing bridge scene at the start of the Bookworm arc!
