TV – Terrific Trio of Crime-fighters Weeknights on Youtoo

Three classic crime-fighting duos are now on weeknights on the social network channel Youtoo.

First up, Agents Mulder and Scully (David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson) investigate things that go bump in the sky in the 1990s paranormal megahit The X-Files.

Then, Van Williams fights the forces of evil as the titular masked avenger in the 1960s noir classic The Green Hornet, costarring Bruce Lee as Kato, the Green Hornet’s karate-chopping manservant, chauffeur, and sidekick.

Finally, Adam West and Burt Ward star in the 1960s pop cultural phenomenon Batman as Gotham City’s Caped Crusaders, who battle a comic cavalcade of cartoonish criminals, including the slinky, feline Catwoman (Julie Newmar); that pompous, waddling master of fowl play, The Penguin (Burgess Meredith); the devilish clown prince of crime, The Joker (Cesar Romero, whose mustache was visible beneath his clown makeup); and the criminally kooky Riddler (Frank Gorshin, who had probably the most hilarious and maniacal laugh ever recorded).

As Batman villain Egghead (Vincent Price) would say, “Eggs-ellent!”
