Ice on the streets of Gotham in July?  It sounds like the calling card of the cool, cruel Mr. Freeze.  He wants revenge on Batman for trapping him forever in the icy grip of his cold empty world, but first he will play with him "like cat with mouse". The question is, why is he doing that?

 

Joining John to try and answer this question is Hey Kids Comics's host Andrew Leyland.

For the fourth episode, the producers brought in Mr. Freeze, known as Mr. Zero in the 1959 Batman #121.  

At the end of the issue, he is cured of his need for cold temperatures by a simple steaming.  

It's not the case in the television show.  In fact, a few of the elements created for the show, including the monikor of Mr. Freeze continue on into the comic books.

An issue of Batmania, a fan magazine, that came out in February of 1966.  Can you guess what the "Big Eye" is that Batman must battle here?
