Batman: The Cat's Meow (1)

A supposedly reformed Catwoman plans to launch a musical career. It's a cover for her latest scheme: a device that steals voices! Those hit by the electronic beam cannot speak at all. With British pop singers Chad and Jeremy about to visit Gotham, Commissioner Gordon has his hands full. Especially after the felonious feline steals his voice. Batman and Robin defeat Catwoman's men, but she drugs them with her claws, and then imprisons them in a gigantic echo chamber where high volume sounds will turn their brains to mush!

Episode Quotes
Gordon: I don't believe there ever have been or ever will be two such selfless people.
O'Hara: They've certainly made my job a whole lot easier, Commissioner.
Gordon: And mine. I think if I were to ask, Batman would give me the cape right off his back. What a man!

Catwoman: Let's get something straight. Catwoman is top dog around here and let's not forget it, Eenie!

Dick: Sorry, I'm not interested in dance lessons.
Bruce: Wait a minute, Dick. The junior prom's coming up, isn't it?
Dick: Yes, but...
Bruce: We don't want you to be a wallflower, do we? Dancing is an integral part of every young man's education.
Dick: Gosh, Bruce. You're right.

(to Robin)
Batman: When you get a little older, you'll see how easy it is to become lured by the female of the species.

Eenie: Why don't you steal Batman's voice while you're at it?
Catwoman: Never. One of the few joys I have in life is when his rich, manly baritone caresses my ears with, "Catwoman, you're under arrest." Ohh, it makes everything worthwhile.

Robin: Holy hangover, what'd she do that for!
Batman: I'm afraid... we've been drugged, Robin.
Robin: I--I guess you can never trust a woman.
Batman: You've made a hasty... generalization, Robin. It's--it's a bad habit to get into it. But in this situ--situation it's entirely appro--appro--appro... (collapses)

Narrator: Zounds! What sounds! Will Batman be reduced to a handsome robot, fit only to serve Catwoman? Is Robin to become little more than a cuddly teddy bear for Eenie? The answers to these and other ear-shattering questions tomorrow!! Same Cat-Time!! Same Cat-Channel!!

Episode Goofs
When the henchman hands Catwoman the call to talk with Commissioner Gordon, he gives it to her upside down. Julie Newmar plays along, and in the next cut, they have her hold it right-side up.
