Animated World of DC Comics: Batman & Robin go up, around, & through to catch a crook (1969)

Here's a 2nd Batman & Robin short from Sesame Street's 1st season. NantoVision1 uploaded this clip to YouTube:

This clip, and the "Crossing the Street" short posted the other day, represent the last Bat-toons from Filmation until CBS ordered up the New Adventures of Batman as a mid-season replacement in 1977. Maybe what's holding up the release of a DVD for the 1968-70 Bat-toon series is WB trying to acquire these shorts from Sesame Workshop (formerly Children's Television Workshop). Let's hope they do, and that DVD finally comes out.

Rating: A. (We'll forgive them for using a regular boomerang in place of the batarang.)
