Batman: 10 Best Villains From The 60s TV Series

batman 60s

Often overlooked nowadays, after the various blockbuster films and popular animated series made of the Caped Crusader, is the 1960s TV series featuring Batman and his €˜youthful ward€™ Robin. Gleefully camp and colourful, it is fondly remembered (though obviously this style's clearly not for everyone) for its catchphrases (€˜Holy cow, Batman!€™), captioned fight scenes (THWACK! GLOCK! SMASH!) and cliffhangers (€˜Will Batman and Robin survive the Penguin€™s pernicious trap? Find out tomorrow; same bat-time, same bat-channel!€™).

However, the real stars of the show are the villains, always ready with an outlandish scheme to pull on the good people of Gotham, before the Dynamic Duo save the day. So sail down those bat-poles and start the Batmobile as we trawl through Batman's rogue gallery for the best of the bat-fiends€

In €˜The Londinium Larcenies€™, Batman and Robin are called to the British capital of Londinium to foil the notorious jewel thieves Lord Marmaduke Ffogg and Lady Penelope Peasoup in their plot to steal the Crown Jewels!

Thanks to this, Ffogg and Peasoup are one of the most memorable of the one-off villains in the series.
