Frank Gorshin - The Riddler

Holy cash-ins, Batman! Everyone knows how to do the Batusi, but fewer people know that the world's greatest detective wasn't the only character in the '60s Batman show to have his own musical number. The Riddler only appeared in 10 episodes, but Frank Gorshin's cackling performance made him a memorable presence. His 1966 single is exactly what you'd imagine it to be: showbiz camp, heavy on the backing vocals, organ and brass. Add some truly awful jokes, a demented chortle or two, and the obligatory two minutes get filled very easily. Bad fun.
