When people complain that the Batman TV show was really camp and unjustly tarnished the image of the Caped Crusaders I think that they are forgetting that there was a bit of camp in the comic book too. Especially in the 1950s and early 60s when Batman was not allowed to battle arch villains like Two Face and the Joker.

Here is perhaps the campest of camp stories that demonstrates how dumb the character and stories had become in the 1950s and early 1960s. This is surely a low point in the Dark Knight Detective’s career.
