Don't hold your breath

"Batman Stands Pat" begins with the Caped Crusader encased in a tomb of quick drying plaster, as Octave Marbot (Alberto Morin) uses his sculpting skills to crack it open, Batman alive and none the worse for wear, surviving by the simple act of holding his breath (yeah, right!). As for David Wayne's Mad Hatter, he enlists his gorgeous moll Lisa (Diane McBain) to pursue the only remaining juror not held captive, Turkey Bowinkle (George Conrad), who not only runs a bowling alley but wears a bowler hat, with Alfred (Alan Napier) enlisted to secure a Bat bugging device inside the label. The finale does indeed take place inside The Mad Hatter's demented hat factory, but the result isn't one he'd anticipated. Diane McBain continues the show's trend for sexy Bat babes, returning in pink wig for the Green Hornet crossover "A Piece of the Action"/"Batman's Satisfaction." David Wayne was a fine enough actor to put in a delightfully zesty performance despite his supposed dislike of the role, enjoyable enough to warrant a repeat appearance for the second season, "The Contaminated Cowl"/"The Mad Hatter Runs Afoul."
