The fake cliffhanger turning Batman and Robin into surfboards was unique but the thickness of the boards ruined the scene, They were too thin to have encased their bodies.
The surfing footage was borrowed from the film The Endless Summer.
It was nice to see Yvonne outside of her costume and Gordon and O'Hara trying to fit in but failing to be anything out of their element.
John Mitchum returns as Hot Dog Harrigan, (formally Rip Snorting, from the Shame episode), now that F Troop was cancelled he was looking for work. Sivi Aberg, formally of Liberace's girl gang, is his new moll with actor Skip Ward (Dozier's first choice for the Green Hornet) and monster actor Ron Burke (he played the alien fish monster in the film Destination Inner Space opposite Jonny Quest's Race Bannon, Mike Road).
Yvonne Craig: ‘The crew and I got along great; the cast— Burt and Adam—very well, although I understand they had had trouble with both of them before I joined the show. I didn’t join the show until the third season. By that time whatever trouble they had had with them about being prima donnas, as far as I could tell, certainly with Burt in particular, had vanished. He knew his lines always, he came prepared, and when he finished shooting he went to his dressing room and played chess with somebody. Other than that, he was delightful. All of them were.”
Johnny Green and his Green Men only proved they had better hairdressers than Cesar, his green wig looked yellow this time around. He had said that the wig was green but photographed everything but green.
Next Batman and Robin travel to Londinium (not London as in the Chad and Jeremy episode) where they meet a down on his luck singer (minus his raccoon coat) and Mrs Banks from Mary Poppins as a larcenous brother and sister and her school for criminal girls. And the second and last appearance of Aunt Harriet. Plus the Londinium Batcave complete with skeleton.
