The Hornet's Sting: Episode 20 - "Trouble for Prince Charming"

"TROUBLE FOR PRINCE CHARMING" AIRED: FEBRUARY 17, 1967 The Hornet gets involved in international affairs when a visiting prince and his fiancé are targets of a coup. There is a great deal of potential in the idea of this story, but the limited time of the individual episode doesn't allow for it. In addition, Jim and John question if the motivation for the Hornet's involvement is practical with the way the series is set up. ​

From the Files of the Batcomputer #38: William Shatner on Batman Vs. Two-Face from New York Comic Con 2017

Last year's The Return of the Caped Crusader proved so popular, it only made sense that a sequel would be developed. And how does one raise the stakes for a sequel?

The Hornet's Sting: Episode 17 - "Corpse of the Year, parts 1&2"

"CORPSE OF THE YEAR" AIRED: JANUARY 13 & 27, 1967 A two-part story brings us a cast of characters and a murder mystery where the Hornet is the prime suspect. This story has a lot going for it, but it also has a number of clumsy elements including a duplicate Hornet and Black Beauty which appears to have no real purpose to the plot other than it looks cool.
