GASP as a scientist creates an atomic-powered hearing aid! THRILL as the same footage of the villain Rat Fink (yes, the main villain's name is Rat Fink) is used over and over again! SCREAM as the scantily clad extras dance awkwardly with each other (one wonders if they were paid per wiggle)! Where exactly this film went wrong is a question that one could spend many hours pondering, but it's much more fun to just sit back, relax, and watch Mike and the bots suffer through THE WILD WILD WORLD OF BATWOMAN.
This episode also featured the short film, CHEATING. This is perhaps the epitome of every 50's educational short film ever made. To sum it up in words would not do justice to its sheer horribleness. It could cause death by laughter all by itself, but in the hands of the crew of the Satellite of Love, it becomes positively dangerous.
Note: For the very brave, the DVD version of this film also comes with the regular, un-MST3Ked version of the film. I do not recommend activating this feature without a parent, guardian or medical worker present.
The (supposed) plot: scientist builds atomic hearing aid - Rat Fink and his agents steal it - Batwoman and her clan of scantily clad Batgirls save the day. Trashy? Yes. Awful? Yes. Entertaining? Absolutely.
Coupled with the "Cheating" short, this is one of the best episodes of MST3K I've seen. The typically unpredictable combination of obscure cultural references and Ye Olde Scatological Humour can cater to all of your comic sensibilities and leave you exhausted and begging for more.
This DVD also contains the short film "Cheating" (with some hilarious host segments revolving around Crow cheating on an essay) and, for the masochistic, the full-length, uncut "Wild World of Batwoman" without the MST comments.
"You've made some powerful enemies, son."

In 1966, director Jerry Warren made a rip-off of the campy Batman TV show. DC Comics sued him and he re-released the film as 'She Was a Hippy Vampire'. Read morePublished on May 28, 2011 by Jorge A. Zarco

In his Poetics, Aristotle intentionally made no mention of The Wild World of Batwoman. Who am I to gainsay his opinion, 20+ centuries later?Published on June 26, 2010 by David Govett
