Ha ha! I love the Riddler's design. Seriously, who else can pull off wearing green tights embroidered in questions marks?

Awesome! The Riddler is pretty cool. I liked him a lot when the animated Series hit TV back in the 90's.

On film he was played by Frank Gorshin (1966 Batman) and Jim Carrey (1995 Batman Forever). Of course Frank Gorshin was the original Riddler and was the best. But I also liked how John Astin played the Riddler in the second season of the Batman TV show. I liked how Astin played Riddler with a lot more villainy than Gorshin did.

I don't remember Astin. I'll have to watch some of the second season. I'm a big fan of how the Riddler is portrayed in the Animated series. Is Astin more like that portrayal?

John Astin Played Riddler in episodes 79 (Batman's Anniversay) and 80 (A Riddling Controversy) in the second season of the Batman TV show. It was Riddler's only appearance that season. Frank Gorshin was unavailable to play the part so the producers approached John (Gomez Addams) Astin don the green tights. I think Astin played the aprt more like a real villain would. He was much more serious and a lot more of a fiend. But most viewers didn't like his performance and it is considered not one of the better episodes.

Seriousness with Bat-Man at that time was not very popular. I'm going to have to find those episodes now. Thank you for the heads-up!
