Can't you picture Martin as Two-Face...singing a duet by himself?

Hey pallies, likes here's a ubber ultra unique unit of Dino-devotion brought to our attentionado by our sold-out-to-Dino pallie Danny G., none other then the scriber of our weekly edition of "Danny G.'s Sunday Serenade With Dino."  Likes don't know where Danny-o first got word of this, but we are thrilled to be able to share this most special of special way of diggin' our Dino.

From the blog, "DEN OF GEEK!," from the pen of Mr. Marc Buxton comes the post "Batmania! 10 Special Guest Batvillains We Wish We'd Seen."  Mr. Buxon "is an English teacher/private tutor by day,and a super-hyper-uber geek by night." So what on earth has Buxton's Batmania centered post likes have to do with our most beloved Dino?

Well, Buxton relates that a couple of Batman devotees, "Jeff Parker and Jonathan Case have a brand-new Batman comic set in the world of the iconic 1960s Batman TV show."  And, likes that inspired Marc to compile a list of ten "Special Guest Batvillains We Wish We'd Seen"....and likes you guested it pallies, our King Of Cool is likes 'mong those wished for Batvillians!

We have shared Mr. Buxton's general intro comments and then his Dino focused villain.  Marc suggests our great great man be cast as the Bat-character "Two- Face," and likes we gotta 'fess up that we thinks he is on to somethin'.  As he describes this vile villain, we coulda really see our Dino diggin' this role!

ilovedinomartin thanks our great Dino-holic pallie Danny-o for bringin' this great post to our attention, and to Mr. Marc Buxton for his coolest of cool creativity in pairin' our most beloved Dino with the likes of Batman and Robin.  To checks this out in it's original format, and to see all ten villain suggestions, simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-message.  Dino-always, ever, and only, DMP

Batmania! 10 Special Guest Batvillains We Wish We'd Seen

Marc Buxton

Jeff Parker and Jonathan Case have a brand-new Batman comic set in the world of the iconic 1960s Batman TV show. Here are ten special guest batvillains who never made it to the screen, but we'd love to see on the page!

With the launch of DC’s Batman ’66 comic by Jeff Parker and Jonathan Case (not to mention a cover by Mike Allred!), it’s pretty easy to find yourself thinking about the incredible “celebrity guest villains” that used to pop up every week on the iconic 1960s TV show. But some classic foes, for one reason or another, were overlooked and never got to go up against Adam West and Burt Ward. Some of these characters simply weren’t created when the pop culture phenomenon of Batmania was at its height, but it’s a blast to think how other villains might have been utilized outside of the Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Riddler, King Tut, and Egghead.  So here’s how these villains would have, could have, and should have been presented in the 1966 Batman show, and some fun speculation on who could have player these dastardly rogues.

Dean Martin as Two- Face

Usually Martin could be seen flipping back a highball, but how about a coin? It was a shame Harvey Dent never made it into the series as he’s one of the most iconic villains from that (or any other) period. Dean Martin and his unique brand of swagger would have made the perfect Jekyll and Hyde gangster, but he also would have garnered sympathy as Harvey Dent. And you know there would have been a musical number if this crooner donned the two toned suit. Can't you picture Martin as Two-Face...singing a duet by himself?
