I like the Ted Cassidy as Lurch bit.

That was oddly entertaining.

As campy as the show was it was still enjoyable although the third season definitely had its faults.

As a kid I only really thought Dan and Dick were funny, turns out I still do.  I try to watch it once in a while and only last about 10 minutes.

By far the funniest had to be with Sammy Davis Jr. when Robin says "be seeing you," for obvious reason. Also, a nice gesture to The Prisoner(?).

And this is why I keep coming back to Fark even though the main page has been a floating dumpster fire for the past three weeks. Thanks for the laugh subbie!
 
2020-04-22 3:05:41 PM  
Subby, take a gold star out of petty cash, that was epic
 
2020-04-22 3:09:00 PM  
They did this bit only 14 times out of 120 episodes? I'd have guessed way more.
 
2020-04-22 4:13:28 PM  
Most of them aren't even trying to pretend that's a normal window...if I saw a woman sticking out of a building like that I'd probably call an exorcist.
 
2020-04-22 4:44:41 PM  
That show is so goddamned weird.
 
2020-04-22 5:57:32 PM  
Funny how people stick straight out of a window!
 
2020-04-22 6:51:27 PM  
I don't get it. Not sure this stuff makes sense if you're over age 6. Or maybe if you're my age.
 
2020-04-22 8:15:26 PM  
That was funny.

I remember seeing an episode while  in the Coast Guard and I could swear it was about the Joker holding Gotham hostage by threatening to dump drims of lsd in the water supply.

Lol. I loved the show but season 3 maybe needs a rewatch but other than Bat Girl it's not as good as season one and two.

Why didn't Art Linkletter tell them, "My daughter's on the roof, go save her, Batman!"
