Batman, Episode 8 - Rats Like Cheese (1966)

Batman, Episode 8 - Rats Like Cheese (1966)
50 years ago today...
"Rats Like Cheese," the eighth episode of the Batman TV series, premiered on February 3rd, 1966.  This episode saw Batman and Robin continue their battle against Mr. Freeze, as introduced in the previous episode.  Mr. Freeze is even LESS exciting in this episode, as he spends all of his time in his refrigerated headquarters, so he never wears his costume, or uses his freeze gun.  Basically he's just a weird German guy in a smoking jacket.  Yay.
