Catwoman pulls off an amazing crime as she not only steals a display of priceless jewels, but she steals the entire castle containing the jewels! Joker is impressed and wants in on the action, but Catowman refuses. A contest of wits ensues with Batman and Robin in the middle. How do they survive?
Plus, it's the debut of Dollman on the cartoon. But this is not the Dollman of DC Comics, but a villain created by Filmation exclusively for the cartoon. The story holds up, but the villain doesn't.
In addition, John and Dan Greenfield, creator and author of the 13th Dimension discuss the voice work of Jane Webb, the derivative nature of the Dollman villain, and their excitement at the upcoming Filmation created villains for the series.

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.
Dan Greenfield of 13th Dimension is John's co-host on the Filmation 68 reviews. He spoke on the podcast on how disturbing he found the Dollman, but he goes into even more detail over at his website.
