The Batcave Podcast: Episode 43 - "A Piece of the Action/Batman's Satisfaction"
Aired March 1/2, 1967
The Green Hornet arrives in Gotham City and looks like he's gunning for a piece of the action. But to Batman, muscling in on the trading stamp racket seems low-key for such a high profile gangster. And what does the foreman of the Pink Chip Stamp Company have to do with it? Is the Hornet the real evil in this plot or is it the unusual Colonel Gumm with his penchant for alphabet soup? Van Williams and Bruce Lee guest star in this episode as their respective characters, The Green Hornet and Kato, from their own ABC series in this crossover as an attempt to generate better ratings for the fledgling show.
Joining John to discuss this episode and the most important character who doesn't get enough recognition is Justin Michael of Batman The Animated Podcast.
