The Catwoman is back in Gotham City and she's training a protegee in the form of singer Lesley Gore as Pussycat. Catwoman's scheme is to get Batman and Robin under her control with a new drug she's designed. With their help, she's hoping to rob the Gotham Mint. How does this episode fair compared to other Catwoman episodes? What did John and his guest think of the inclusion of not one, but two performances by Lesley Gore? Just how ironic was it that Robin was hitting on Pussycat?
Joining John to discuss this episode is Dan Greenfield, creator and author of the 13th Dimension website.
This episode is dedicated to the memory of Lesley Gore.

Dan Greenfield is the editor and co-creator of 13thDimension.com, a website devoted primarily to comics and pop culture, past and present. To him, the basic food groups are Batman, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek (the Original Series), James Bond, the Beatles and the Stones. But if he had to he'd be able to subsist on Batman alone. Channel 11 in New York was his favorite syndicated channel as a kid -- you can guess why -- followed closely by Channel 5. Channel 9 didn't really enter into it unless he was home sick and there wasn't much else on. He's married to his remarkably patient wife Wendy and his best sidekick is his son, Sam. They have two cats,Lex and Zod.
This episode of The Green Hornet aired on the Friday part two of that week's Batman episode. Oddly enough, this was part two of a two-part story that was preempted the week before.
