The Clock King is a criminal with a clock gimmick. He's the brother of the Mad Hatter and an enemy of Batman.

History[]

The Clock King appears in two consecutive episodes of the 1960s Batman series. In the episode, disguised as a pop artist, Clock King tries to rob a gallery of a time-related surrealist painting. Batman and Robin are stuffed into the bottom of an oversized hourglass, stripped of their utility belts, and left to be drowned in sand as The Clock King plots to filch Bruce Wayne's collection of antique pocket watches (only for the duo to later escape the trap). Later in the episode, he starts his masterplan, to steal the atomic powered Cesium Clock. He wore a black cape and a top-hat with a clock inside it.

Weapons and Equipment[]

He had many weapons such as:

  • Super Slick Watch Oil -
  • Knock Out Gas - Knocks out those who inhale it.
  • Super Sonic Sound -
  • Giant Hourglass - Used to trap its victims (such as Batman and Robin) and suffocates them under the weight and amount of sand.

Associates[]

Just as Batman and Robin do not go at crime-fighting alone, Clock King needs fellow partners in crime to assist him with his malicious schemes.

  • Millie Second (portrayed by Eileen O'Neill) - Clock King's female assistant. She was very attracted to Batman.
  • Second Hand Three (portrayed by Michael Pate) - Clock King's henchman.
  • Second Hand Five (portrayed by Charlie Picerni) - Clock King's henchman.
  • Mad Hatter - Clock King's brother

The one thing the accomplices have to shut their ears to is the fact on every hour every clock in Clock King hideout rings the Hour..the only one enjoying it is Clock King!
