Vending machines at Woodrow Roosevelt High are dispensing coins instead of candy or milk.  It seems like a silly prank, but in Gotham City pranks are the calling card of The Joker.  Batman is called in to investigate and he finds The Joker is recruiting students for his scheme.  Dick has to go undercover to find out who is in the gang and what Joker's ultimate scheme is.


Joining John to talk about this unusual story is author Dayton Ward.

Dayton Ward is the author of numerous media tie-in fiction works in such realms as Star Trek and The 4400.  He is also the author of such original works as Counterstrike, The Last World War, Book 2 and The Genesis Protocol. When he's not writing or working for a software design firm, he's busy indoctrinating his two lovely daughters into the worlds that have so seriously warped his mind.

Lorenzo Semple developed the original villain "The One-Armed Bandit" for the series, but instead of going with that, elements of his story were worked into this original Joker caper.

Adam West appears on The Hollywood Palace on March 5, the week the Joker episode aired.  He does a sketch on superheroes with Martha Raye and Milton Berle.  Berle would later appear on the show.
