Batman Double Double Comics 3

Popped into my local comic shop yesterday and he had a box full of late 60's/early 70's comics he'd taken as a job lot off someone. Had a trawl and got a few, including an issue of this title, which i've read about, but never got back then.

Well, i say that, but its all pretty duff: Bruce reminded of a high school wimps humiliation before, wouldn't you know it, he pops up up still bearing a grudge from that time:
Clearly its 1966, with the strip emulating the TV show, or the TV show emulating the strip with its action and sound effects:
But we've got a reproducion of Batman Issue 186, which as i've said, is THE issue for me from my childhood. Apart from the amazing cover, these two images have stayed with me all these years - the blow up Robin and the house being lifted up. Dunno why, but i'm trying to think back to to the mind of a 7 year-old, and that ain't easy:
