    MeTV Collector's Call--Ralph Garman and Batman '66

    Tonight's Collector's Call on MeTv featured Ralph Garman's extensive Batman '66-infuenced collection. Some great rareties, including costumes and props.

    He's a Burgess Meredith fan, too and we both have the same favorite episodes: Hizzonnor The Penguin/Dizzonor The Penguin, from season 2 where Pengy runs for mayor.

    Garman's collection is the stuff of legend, and he knows his stuff. I love how he snuck a creator credit for Bill Finger in there. His Adam West impersonation is spot-on as well. A wonderful episode!

    I actually gasped when I saw those Clock King and Penguin patches. My partner asked why they were special lol. The costumer in me just loves that stuff. Neat to see the Catwoman belt as well.

    The Penguin campaign props always grab my attention, that sandwich board sign was amazing.

    ^The fact that he found it in an antique shop was equally amazing! Of course the Black Beauty was stored in an old barn for decades, so weirder things have happened to Hollywood props!

    What is awesomely coincidental about the discovery of Black Beauty: With the original '30s Green Hornet, the Black Beauty was garaged in an abandoned stable on the Reid estate. Shades of Silver and the Lone Ranger, Britt Reid's grand-uncle.

    Garman is a brilliantly funny guy. Loved him on the Kevin & Bean Show.

    Oh yeah, I had forgotten about that! Oh, the irony!

    And as for Garman, can he please be DC's "face" instead of Kevin Smith? He hosted the Superman 40th Anniversary screenings through Fathom, and I think maybe he did the '89 Batman, too? I can't recall.

    Either way, I'd much rather see him be their MC, because 1) he's actually funny, and 2) he's not a clown ALL the time. Plus he never wrote a comic where Batman peed himself.

    Sorry, rant over. I don't hate Smith, but I roll my eyes a bit when he shows up in "I just drank 2 cases of Monster and smoked 4 pounds of weed" mode on this DC special features/CW discussion shows.

    Not a fan of Smith but something about Garman just makes me cringe, I can't explain it or justify it but he creeps me out for some reason.

    ^Hmm, I don't get that at all. He does have that "Radio DJ" persona to a point, but he dialed it way back on this Collector's Call episode, I thought.

    If Smith retired from public life tomorrow, I wouldn't be sorry. I wish him no will, but his aged stoner fanboy shctick has really run its course with me.
