In the first two-parter of season three, Penguin and Lola Lasagne horse around with the Wayne Foundation's charity horse race. Before getting in the saddle, Tim and Paul first look at some background on season three: shooting order of episodes, the reasons for multi-part season three stories, etc.
The Sport of Penguins and A Horse of Another Color are a rather strange pair of episodes. In spite of having two whole episodes, the producers still skip important scenes, as was typical of the one-part Batman stories. Besides the problem of "checking in" with all the characters, what else might have been making them short of time? And why are these (supposedly) Billy May-scored episodes so full of of recycled Nelson Riddle music?
Were Burgess Meredith and Ethel Merman "comedy gold" together? With a Charles Hoffman script?! How should we think about those "next week's villain" scenes that don't fit into the continuity of the episodes they promote?
Also, the Bob Kuban and the In-Men version of the theme, and your mail!
Is Billy Mac, writer of the Batgirl Theme lyrics, an alias for William Dozier? Yes, and Jim Akin found proof!
