Are these names of Perry Mason cases or Batman bad guys?

Both shows dealt with clowns and widows.

On Perry Mason, each episode is named to describe the case Perry's cracking wide open. Often alliterative, these episode names identified suspects and victims in descriptive terms, so instead of seeing a character's name to label a case, we saw "Silent Partner" or "Haunted Husband" and the like. 

Every now and again, these cases take on such colorful names that they actually remind us of another huge installment in 1960s television: Batman.
 
In the Sixties Batman series, not only did we see villains like the Joker and the Penguin, but we also got to know their henchmen and associates, and all these bad guys had names. These names were, like Mason's cases, sometimes alliterative and always highly descriptive.

In this overlap, we saw the perfect opportunities for a game that pits Perry Mason up against Batman to see if you can figure out which names below are for Perry's cases and which belong to Batman baddies. Good luck nabbing the right guy every time!
  1. BLACK WIDOW
  2. WOEFUL WIDOW
  3. JADED JOKER
  4. FALSE FACE
  5. STUTTERING BISHOP
  6. BEDEVILED DOCTOR
  7. PRINTER'S DEVIL
  8. ROYAL APOTHECARY
  9. CLOCK KING
  10. DANGEROUS DOWAGER
  11. CLUMSY CLOWN
  12. CRYING COMEDIAN
  13. MAD DOG
  14. HOWLING DOG
  15. EAGLE-EYE
  16. PRETTY BOY
  17. PURPLE WOMAN
  18. ARTFUL DODGER

The only one I got wrong was the last.
I thought it was Batman, but apparently not.

14/18. In odd coincidence, "Printer's Devil" is also the title of a "Twilight Zone" episode. Who stars in that episode? None other than Burgess Meredith, The Penguin from "Batman"!

I missed two because I didn't realize they were also counting henchmen. That was tricky.

You got 12 out of 18 ----------Missed a few. Perhaps you should've hired Perry to solve some of these cases?

15/18! For me, Printer's Devil isn't Batman or Perry Mason, it's a Twilight Zone with Burgess Meredith!

16/18. It would have been funny seeing Perry defend a Batman bad guy. Perry: "Your Honor, my client the Penguin is innocent!" Penguin: "Wack, wack wack" Perry: "Quiet, Jerk!"
