Batman 60's TV Wiki

"Oh let us eggsplore Gotham City's Sewer System!"

Egghead aka Edgar Heed, was a major enemy of the Dynamic Duo that believed himself to be "the world's smartest man alive." His crimes usually have an egg-motif to them as well as including egg puns in his speech where appropriate such as "egg-zactly" and "egg-cellent." Egghead is instantly identifiable by his pale bald head and white and yellow suit. He is based on a villain who faced Batman once called Barney Barrow. Egghead is sometimes with Olga, Queen of the Cossacks. When seen alone, his eggcomplices were Foo young and Benedict. Ms. Bacon (Eggheads secretary) helped too.
