Batman TV - "Surf's Up! Joker's Under!" (1967)
 
02:22
Climactic fight scene from the Batman episode entitled "Surf's Up! Joker's Under!", first telecast on 11/16/1967 on ABC-TV. Batman thwarts The Joker's questionable plan for world domination by beating him in the surfing championship of Gotham City. I particularly like the music, which stands out from other lack-luster third season scores.

Jean Shepherd - "Shepherd's Pie"
 
07:04
Opening monologue from an episode of "Shepherd's Pie" (1977-1978), which was broadcast on New Jersey Public Television. Basically a video version of the type of opening monologue Shep would have done on his WOR radio show (1955-1977). Is it me, or does Shep seem uncomfortable, "out of his element" (like a fish out of water) on TV? Radio was the man's medium, in my humble opinion, and I think he knew it.
