Adam West, Burt Ward, Victor Buono

King Tut -- an ancient Egyptian King turned bad. With a blow to the head, a seemingly innocent college professor turned back the hands of time to become a super villain. With crocodiles and potions made form dead scarabs, King Tut more than once tries to boil Batmans goose in oil.

Television series which ran from 1966-1968 has "King Tut" as a major antagonist for Batman and Robin, one not previously found in the comic books. King Tut features in the episodes "The Curse of Tut" (#1.27), "The Pharaoh's in a Rut" (#1.28), "The Spell of Tut" (#2.7), "Tut's Case Is Shut" (#2.8), "King Tut's Coup" (#2.53), "Batman's Waterloo" (#2.54), "A Horse of Another Color" (#3.5), "The Unkindest Tut of All" (#3.6), "I'll Be a Mummy's Uncle" (#3.23) and "The Entrancing Dr. Cassandra" (#3.25). Interesting quotes: (King Tut to Nefertiti) "How many times must I tell you? Queens consume nectar and ambrosia, not hot dogs.", and (Batman to King Tut): "Who are you anyway?" - "Tut ! Master of thieves, King of the Nile, thats just on momma's side of the family."
