Animated World of DC Comics: The Nine Lives of Batman (1968)

Batman locks horns with Catwoman, who douses the Caped Crusaders with a radioactive gas that will enable the Princess of Plunder to discern their true identities. Well, at least, that's the plan.

Dennis Marks' script for "The Nine Lives of Batman" was actually worthy of being adapted for comics, but never was.

What I never got was Filmation opting against teasing any romantic tension between Batman & Catwoman, contrary to the live-action series that had ended six months before the cartoon bowed.

Also: "In Again, Out Again Penguin".

Rating: A-.
