PROPS: The Penguin's Submarine Periscope From Batman (1966)

"This is Burgess Meredith's "The Penguin" submarine periscope from Batman (1966). Seen atop the conning tower of the fine feathered fink's vanity submarine, this is a penguin form periscope constructed of cast fiberglass, accordion tubing, and cardboard tube with interior wooden doweling rod. Measures 48 x 15 x 10.75 in. Exhibiting some chipping to paint and scuffing. An instantly recognizable relic from one of the Caped Crusader's most fearsome foes, replete with the handmade charm that made Batman 66's gadgetry so iconic. In vintage very good condition. Provenance: Profiles in History."

This periscope sold on December 17th, 2019 for $3,250 with the Profiles in History auction.
