    One of the many reasons why Batman '66 is genius and the best Batman comic ever released in my lifetime:
    In back up story "The Butler Did It", Bruce Wayne is escorting Alfred's cousin Egbert out of the Wayne Foundation after serving a prison sentence. Bruce wishes Egbert well and offers him a $20 to put to good use as a newly reformed citizen. Bruce leaves Egbert and Alfred to reunite. Once they are by themselves, Egbert knocks out Alfred and intends to take Alfred's place at Wayne Manor to get in and rob Bruce Wayne. While disguised as Alfred, he is dusting the study when the Bat-phone rings. Egbert picks up, Gordon asks for Batman and Egbert rather frustrated and angered tells him he has the wrong number very rudely and hangs up. GENIUS. In the living room Egbert mentions the phone call in front of Aunt Harriett. Aunt Harriett wonders why someone would call Wayne Manor asking for Batman and Bruce Wayne reassures her it was obviously a prank.

    Hand's down one the greatest Batman moments of all time, and only the genius series that is Batman '66 could deliver such a landmark moment in the 75 year history of the character.
    Drop everything you are doing and google "michael keaton birdman". They are making a BIRDMAN movie starring MICHAEL KEATON. (supposedly not related to the Hanna-Barbera Birdman)

    I think you're getting a bit carried away here and embellishing more than a little bit. This is a fun and cute series but it's far from the best Batman comic of all-time nor is that a landmark moment in Batman's 75 years, not even close by a longshot. It's a fun comic that's a joy to read. I actually plan to buy the first hardcover so I can put away my single issues and I can't wait to get the complete DVD set. Your enthusiasm is admirable though.

    Instead of putting two and two together and concluding Bruce Wayne is Batman because the Bat-phone at Wayne Manor rings, and Gordon on the other end asks for Batman is simply easily dismissed by the person answering the phone as a wrong number, is, genius. The situation itself is obvious, the wrong number response is even more obvious. Because of the complete obviousness of the situation, the fact that someone could come up with this wrong number idea is complete brilliance. There has to be more obvious you don't even think about situations/solutions to come in future stories (I can only hope at this point). If they don't, its because this can't be topped.

    The ONLY thing I insist on here at Toonzone when I chime in on a topic is my passion/enthusiasm for said topic. Batman '66 is the most excited I've ever been for Batman in years in any media. Now if this was Batman (and Robin) '97 and I was doing the same exact thing for that as I do for this, then there really would be a problem. Ha.
