Did You Know?


Tut refers to Bruce Wayne as a millionaire playboy and man about town. This was taken from the opening narration to The Shadow radio series, which used the same description for The Shadow's alter ego Lamont Cranston. The Shadow has long been cited as an inspiration in the creation of the Batman character. See more »


Batman lectures Robin that "the Constitution provides that a man is innocent until proven guilty". Though presumption of innocence is widely held to follow from the 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendments, the phrase does not appear anywhere in the Constitution. See more »

Yet Another Cool King Tut Show
28 March 2010 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Some great moments to be found here. In my youth I really liked the sci-fic start with Dick communicating with Bruce by talking into a glowing ball. Kid's like that stuff and it was a nice change from the usual start to a Batman show.

King Tut is a scream with "A delayed echo in here?" and "He's going to go straight to the Bat-cave and put on that corny blue outfit". Even in my youth I found these lines funny.

On the negative side. More of those cheap sets with a black, totally black, background. And Gordon goes for one of the oldest and dumbest jokes in the book, when talking to someone on the phone he says: "You don't say, you don't say, you don't say?". You know the rest.

This is well worth watching for Victor Buono as King Tut as Tut is the second most amusing bad guy on the series, The Joker is the most amusing.
