Slide Down the Bat Pole!

Bart Simpson belted out "Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg...." A promising start, but was there actually a song that gave these lyrics their rightful place in a full version?

Our friends at The Mad Music Archive answered this on a Christmas episode last year, and shared a true gem with the world that I never knew existed, and likely many readers here didn't know about either! Now, you won't find many novelty songs at my blog...most of them kind of wear out their welcome after a few listens...but this one has an enduring quality.

What better time to share The Lost Batman Christmas Episode starring Adam West?

As far as I know, the 'Jingle Bells, Batman Smells' song is originally from the Batman comics, a song the Joker sang at christmas time.

BTW check out Jingle Bells by The Barenaked Ladies ;)
