Victor Buono’s King Tut was my favorite character on the 60’s TV Show. He embraced the campy nature of the show without being two-dimensional.
I’ve generally read the Batman and Robin show was intentionally campy from the beginning. However, I’ve also read that it wasn’t. Watching the piolet episode with the Riddler, it looks plausible that the show was envisioned to follow in the footsteps of shows like The Man From Uncle or The Avengers — stylized and surreal with humor but not campy.
