Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Waldo Kitty as Catman (1975)

While I've never been able to figure out when or how Filmation gained another license for Batman, this episode of The Secret Lives of Waldo Kitty may have been a precursor of things to come.

Waldo (Howard Morris) imagines himself as Catman, while trying to figure out how to rescue Felicia (Jane Webb) from Tyrone, the neighborhood bulldog (Allan Melvin).

Melvin would recycle Tyrone's voice three years later for Bluto on The All-New Popeye Hour. I think what hurt this show in the long term was that it was on too early in the morning for most kids.

Rating: B--.
