Best Has-Beens

Holy bat shark repellent! That pretty much sums up the heights of Bat-cheese that the Adam West-Burt Ward TV series Batman reached in 1966 with its movie version's crescendo of kitsch. Now you can ask the Caped Crusaders themselves what exactly was everyone thinking when the Dynamic Duo appears in person at the Hollywood Show, a star-studded meet-and-greet for fans with sci-fi TV fetishes. On the guest list: Batman's Julie Newmar (Catwoman) and Yvonne Craig (Batgirl), Star Trek's Grace Lee Whitney, Superman II's Sarah Douglas, Electra Woman & Dyna-Girl's Deidre Hall and Judy Strangis, H.R. Pufnstuf's Billie Hayes (Witchie-Poo), and the maestros of Saturday-morning mayhem themselves, Sid and Marty Krofft. But wait, there's more! TV's not just schlocky sci-fi; it's schlocky sitcoms and dramas, too. David Leisure, anyone? He was Joe Isuzu before Empty Nest. Dinah Manoff? Elaine on Soap before Empty Nest, and a Pink Lady in Grease. She reunites onstage with Grease co-stars Frankie Avalon, Jamie Donnelly, Barry Pearl, Eddie Deezen and Edd Byrnes, along with director Randal Kleiser. Order now and we'll throw in Baywatch babe Erika Eleniak, Angel's Donna Wilkes ("High school honor student by day, Hollywood hooker by night") and Jon Lovitz's wife, Morgan Fairchild. There's still more celebrity flesh to be pressed, depending on your kink, including Lesley Ann Warren, Drake Hogestyn, Michael Learned, Louise Fletcher and Carol Channing. Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel & Convention Center, 2500 N. Hollywood Way, Burbank; Fri., Oct. 7, 6-9 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 8, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 9, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; $15-$50. (877) 829-SHOW, hollywoodshow.com.
Fri., Oct. 7, 6-9 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 8, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 9, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 2011
