He Meets His Match, The Ghostly Ghoul

BatmanRobin is distraught when he discovers that Susie, the head cheerleader at his high school, has become a pawn of the Joker. Batman suggests that the Boy Wonder can help, but not as Robin – he instead goes undercover as Dick Grayson, but his attempt to act like a high school dropout doesn’t fool the Joker…and this places Susie’s life in jeopardy unless the Joker can be stopped.

BatmanNotes: Just two years before Planet Of The Apes made her a household name, Linda Harrison makes her first on-screen appearance in this episode of Batman. She would go on to play Wonder Woman in an unaired pilot, Who’s Afraid Of Diana Prince?, filmed (and rejected) in 1967; it would be the 1970s (and two actresses later) before Wonder Woman, Batman’s DC Comics stablemate, would become a fixture of prime time.
