Out of curiosity, what are your favorite episodes of the 60's TV show? For me, it would have to be "The Joker is Wild"/"Batman is Riled". The first appearance of the Joker, and a great episode to match. Love the opera scene with the Joker.
Mine would be the very first episodes, "Hi Diddle Riddle"/"Smack in the Middle." It featured my favorite villain, the Riddler, and was also a bit darker in tone than the rest of the series. It featured the only death in the series (Molly, the Riddler's henchgirl), and it was the only time the villain was never caught, as the Riddler gets away in the end.
I also love "True or False Face"/"Holy Rat Race". Another pair of dark episodes that freaked me out when I saw them as a little kid, as False Face was a really creepy-looking villain.
-- I also liked the first two episodes. I agree they were a little darker than the rest of the series.
-- The Catwoman episodes where Batman and Robin are imprisoned in the maze with the spiked walls, etc. (Ill also point out that this episode also had a "death": Catwoman falls into the bottomless pit, though of course she's back later. I don't think there was any explanation. Chalk it up to that nine lives thing.) I still have the View Master reels for this one.

Any and all episodes that didn't feature Batgirl, Shame, Louie The Lilac, The Black Widow, & Ma Parker.
My all time favorite episode is the two parter with The Green Hornet & Kato, I read that Bruce Lee was playing a joke on Burt Ward the day those two were to fight, and Bruce got all serious and made Burt really nervous, he kept telling Bruce Lee that it was only a show and to calm down... that would have been great to see on a behind the scenes dvd (fingers crossed hopefully someday when the studios stop fighting over money we will see Batman 66 on DVD)
The Joker is Wild episode! Besides being based off of a comic book story, it was the darkest of the Joker episodes. I like the end where the Joker telecasts Batman and Robin with their heads on a chopping block, and the high executioner stands over them with his huge axe.
IMO, it also has the hottest moll, Nancy Kovaks! Look at her in the last scene where she tries to escape up the stairs and Batman grabs her wrist.
Thats so hard to pin down...its been awhile since I was able to see this grand ol' show...but there was an episode where Batman and Robin were trapped in a giant tea kettle..that ranks amongst my favs.
btw, nice avatar RJ..did you put that one togther?
That deathtrap is from the episode "Catwoman Goes to College."
Catwoman ties up the Dynamic Duo and sticks them in a coffee cup situated under a huge mechanical coffee pot that pours acid (shades of Bill Finger)! This is an animated sign on a rooftop. Batman gets out by sticking his hands (which are bound) under the spout as it just begins to drip out, burning off the ropes!
Actually, it's one of the better traps, and did not havs a goofy get-away like most of them.
Although Joker is my favorite villain, my favorite episode is the one that they made the Viewmaster reel from, "The Purr-fect Crime!" I love the traps Catwoman puts the Dynamic Duo through before she whiskes Robin away and makes Batman choose "The lady or the tiger!"...
I actually like the eps with the villains that were made up just for the show, like King Tut, The Siren, Egghead, Shame, the Archer and the Minstrel. I liked the ep with Shame where the first part ends with the little kid yelling "Shame, come back!" and also the one with Mr Freeze where at the end of the first half, B&R are frozen solid. I don't remember the titles
