I can only imagine that money must have been tight in Gotham City back in the 1960s for Batman to take a singing gig on a variety show. Or perhaps he was working undercover to bust a ring of rogue off-key villains? Or maybe he lost a bet with the Joker?
A YouTube commenter nails it when he says: “Gotham City’s Police Dept just made him their #1 criminal…he murdered that song!”
But wait — it gets better. And by “better” I mean “worse”. Here’s Robin (Burt Ward) singing the same. Audio only. You’re welcome.
My only question: how did these not make it on the Batmania! album?
