The Catwoman has returned to Gotham City and it looks as though her crime seems pretty obvious, the theft of two gold cat statues.  But there's something more to the statues and some books on the history of Gotham City provides the clues.  Can Batman figure it out before the Catwoman clips his and Robin's wings?


Joining John to talk about the debut of the feline felon is The Podcast Cowboy, Clay Dugger.

No Catwoman story was ever adapted for the Batman series although it is possible that the idea to use the character may have been derived from a 50s reprint issue that had a few of the stories they would adapt for other villains.  Catwoman's new look wasn't featured in the series until December 1967, well into the third season of the series when Batgirl was established in the series and the comic book.

View-Master's were a mainstay of the 60s, 70s, and 80s.  Young people would purchase these disks and view them in 3 dimensions with their View Master.  The top image is the original release while the one to the right was a rerelease in the 80s.
