Who are these celebs popping out of a window on 'Batman'?

Holy pop quiz, Batman!

Famous faces lined up to appear on Batman. The camp classic cast everyone from stars of Hollywood's golden age to modern pop singers. Everyone from Tallulah Bankhead to Lesley Gore jumped at the chance to play villains. Heck, even Frank Sinatra wanted to play the Joker.

The 1966–68 series also had a brilliant gimmick: Whenever Batman and Robin were climbing the side of a building, a celebrity would pop out of a window and say hello.

This happened 14 times over the three seasons. So, can you name all of them? Only a true ace of 1960s trivia could identify all of them, so we'll help out a bit.

In "The Right Stuff", one of the astronauts was mimicking him when they were having their medical tests done. That's the only way I know him.

Nice work including Sammy Petrillo on the choices for #4, considering that his entire act consisted of imitating Jerry Lewis. Instead of Lenny Bruce you should have had Eddie Deezen for the other distractor, or maybe comic Jack Larsen (not to be confused with the actor of the same name who played Jimmy Olsen on Superman) who also incorporated Jerry Lewis schtick in their work.

Whenever I hear, then see, someone in a cape and leotards scaling up my building, I pretend not to notice.

The Sixties were a simpler time.
