Correction: That's the point of the clue, to contain the information without giving it away. By saying out loud H two O's it leads Robin to say the formula for water. The H and O's in the clue don't represent hydrogen and oxygen; just like a clue with a sheep (ewe) represents "you".

Give 'em the Axe (2) - S1-E24

Corrected entry: At the end, Batman mentions "Aunt Harriet's home-cooked meals" to Robin while they're well within earshot of Riddler and his henchmen, who are all restrained, but not unconscious. That's dropping a pretty big clue to their secret identities - a mistake Batman would be much too smart to make. (00:22:00)

Correction: Mentioning Aunt Harriet's name would hardly be a clue to Batman's secret identity. First, she isn't even Batman/Bruce Wayne's aunt. Additionally, other non-relatives (like the Commissioner) call her Aunt Harriet. And, even though the audience can hear Batman, there's no reason to think the goons are in "ear-shot".

Trivia: Originally, Batman villain Two-Face was going to appear in this show and was going to be portrayed by Clint Eastwood. Two-Face's backstory wouldn't have him as an attorney who had acid thrown in his face but instead have him as a news anchor who would have a stage light exploding resulting in his injuries and his transformation into a criminal.

Answer: It's wasn't unusual for multiple actors to play one character on this show. The villains on the TV Batman were played by guest stars, not regular cast members. George Sanders, Otto Preminger, and Eli Wallach played the part at various times. They may simply have only wanted to play the part once or twice, or they were later tied up with other projects, making it necessary to cast someone else. Other characters, like Catwoman, were also played by more than one actress.
