Holy Bible, Batman!


Holy Bible! the classic Mitch & Allen comedy routine, which spoofs the even classic-ier 1960s TV series Batman, has just been published in script form by my online publisher Skit Guys. This was one of the most popular Mitch & Allen sketches back in the day–thousands of stickers and t-shirts featuring the above cartoon were scooped up after live M&A programs.

In the routine, two suspiciously familiar characters struggle to solve this mystery: Why did Jesus say, “You must be born again?” (John 3:7)

“It means no one is truly good!” the big-eared fella concludes. (Luke 18:19)

“But we’re the good guys!” the little dude protests. “We save the world from horrible criminals, we give to charity, and to avoid drawing attention to ourselves we wear these ridiculous tights and masks!”

“Oh, yeah, that works,” the big dude snarks.

Superheroes have never been bigger. But what if even superheroes aren’t super enough? One reason Marvel and DC movies have become so popular is that they show the dark side, the brokenness, of even the most super-powered humans. There has only ever been one Superhero with unlimited power…

A power great enough to transform even us!

    Super Heroes also need at least one dedicated side kick. Thanks for this post. It is some times frustrating being a side kick for someone in your life that you believe is a super hero. Needed to adjust my attitude here as not everyone can be a super hero and they have difficulties that side kicks just don’t get 🙂

  2. Great post Mitch! Too bad most images of Jesus in our society have Him as the wimpy character against a mighty Satan like on South Park. As Psalm 2:4 says, “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.” As you said, THAT”S a super hero worthy of the name!

    Having Jesus within, you can kick dust in the face of Satan. I believe.
