Springfield Googolplex Ep. 27: Batman: The Movie (1966) with Daniel Grant

ThatShelf.com presents:
Springfield Googolplex
– The movie podcast for Simpsons fans.

Holy Dutch angles, Batman! Inspired by the Simpsons episode, “Radioactive Man” (S7E2), Adam and Nate are taking on their first double feature focused on two versions of Batman. In the first installment, they’re teaming up with special guest Daniel Grant (from ThatShelf.com’s own Spoiled Rotten Podcast) to revisit Batman: The Movie (1966), its TV origins, and its Simpsons parody in the campy sixties version of Radioactive Man.
