Batman & Robin Meet Santa Claus

...so, today we're giving DC Comics equal time with a kool Yule scene from the 1960s Batman TV series.
One of the hallmarks of the show was the "Bat-Climb", where the Caped Crusader and Boy Wonder would encounter celebrities or characters from other shows as they scaled the wall of a building with their Bat-Rope (using a set turned sideways so the actors were merely pretending to be climbing.)

In this second-season episode ("The Duo is Slumming", featuring the one-shot villain Puzzler), airing right before Christmas in 1966, the Dynamic Duo meet Kris Kringle, played by an uncredited Andy Devine.
(After all, the producers didn't want kids to think Santa wasn't real...)

Merry Christmas!
