Hello fellow Super-hero fans,

Born in 1955 I just missed the great radio age and grew up watching The Adventures of Superman on TV and reading comics. I of course knew that Superman had a radio show but never thought I would ever get to hear the shows.

But of even more interest to me was that I had read that Batman and Robin guest starred on many episodes. So naturally when I joined this site I began searching for those episodes first.

To save fellow Batman fans the trouble I made a list here of every episode I could find that guest starred Batman and Robin together with Superman.

"The Mystery of the Wax Men" (warning the last episode of this 3 part story is missing. What can you do?)
"Dr. Bly's Confidence Gang"
"Looking for Kryptonite"
"The Story of the Century"
"The Monkey Burglar"
"Batman's Great Mystery"
"The Secret of Meteor Island"
"The Voice of Doom"

There may be more. I haven't heard the whole series yet. If I find any more I will post them here. My thanks to the creator of this site once again."

Old Time Radio fan

Thanks Simon Magus. I had heard that he guest starred, but that since he wasn't bullet proof etc. like Superman that his character never did quite take off and create a spin off series.

Don't mean to nit-pick, but "The Mystery of the Wax Men" is actually a 12 part series. I've found 4, still looking for the rest.

Wow! There are 12 parts? Let me know if you find the rest anywhere else I would love to hear that one as it is the show where Superman meets Batman.

While we are on the subject over on the Batman site I heard "The Monster of Dumphrey Hall" from The Batman Mystery Club. I don't know if it ever aired but I believe it was another attempt to give Batman his own show.

Now I am not 100% of my facts but as I was listening I said, "Hey I know that voice." To me it sounds a lot like Lewis Wilson the screens first Batman. Can anyone verify this?

I looked on Wikipedia for the episode, which directed me to a link of 'Robin in other media'. It mentions that Ronald Liss was the voice of Robin, but says nothing of who voiced Batman.

I've uploaded parts 2 & 3 of "Mystery of the Wax Men" using ftp, in the folder called 'glory77' if anyone wants to download. Hopefully Brad can add them to the Superman folder of shows. 4 down, only 8 more to find.

Here is a useful site for everything having to do with Superman. Including a section with plot synopsis for the radio serial. I thought some of our friends at the forum here may want to check it out if you haven't already http://superman.wikia.com/wiki/Superman_Wiki

Hi, thanks for the thread. I came across it through a search engine, and was wondering what episodes Batman and/or Robin were in.

I put this search into Google and I think I've found a few more episodes: site:www.supermanhomepage.com/radio Batman

(some of these may not be available or may be incomplete, I haven't checked yet)

(edit: Nevermind, it says they don't/can't review episodes that are unavailable, I guess that makes sense. "The Mystery of the Waxmen" is on their list of incomplete, so I guess we're out of luck.)

1946: Is There Another Superman?

1946: The Dead Voice

1946: The Secret Letter

1947: Superman Versus Kryptonite

1947: Pennies for Plunder

1948: The Mystery of the Stolen Costume

Asaki,

Welcome to the forum! I don't know much about this series. Can anyone help out here with Batman questions?

Brad

Ok excellent, thanks for listing these extra shows. I see on the Superman archives all we have all 6 of these shows. So I'll listen to them and let you know for sure if Batman guest stars.

Thanks again

The link below will give you reviews of most very Superman radio seria out there (with a very few exceptions) and includes a detailed storyline of every episode in the serial, plus trivia and personal views from the author. It's terrific.

Batman also shows up for just one show in THE SUPER SLEUTH. Batman needs someone to impersonate him and uses Bruce Wayne/Batman.

I think that Batman is "the original" Batman (in The Adventures of Superman series anyway) Stacy Harris - who did a lot of Dragnet on radio and television.)

Sometimes on The Adventures of Superman, he played Batman, other times, it was someone else.

He's one of my favorite supporting actors in radio and TV.

The Superman serial is currently running on "The Golden Age of Radio" every Sunday on WBAI New York. They also let you listen to the show on their website for a week after each broadcast.
