The Unkindest Tut of All

King Tut is a major recurring enemy of the Dynamic Duo. He a obese history professor that believes he is Tutankhamun.


William McElroy is a respected professor of ancient civilizations, in particular Egyptology. One day he passed by an antiwar rally which turned violent, and was caught in the crossfire of having a brick land on him. When he came to, he declared himself the reincarnation of King Tuthamaken of Egypt, and that Gotham must be the city of Thebes. King Tut lives in a liar that has many Egypt-themed products, such as jackals, scarabs and pyramids. He has underlings who dress as slaves or Egyptian soldiers, and is waited on by beautiful women dressed as princesses. He is dangerous because of his megalomania, thinking he is leader of Gotham, as he believes it to be Thebes, and sees Batman and Robin as rebels who are trying to dethrone him. Despite his danger, Batman rarely holds King Tut responsible for his misdeeds as another blow to the head restores his meek personality of William McElroy, with no memory of "King Tut", although at least one episode ended with William McElroy sheepishly admitting to Batman "Oh no, I did it again, didn't I?", suggesting there is some awareness of his destructive alter ego.

Behind the ScenesEdit

Tut was portrayed by actor Victor Buono. Unlike most characters created for show, King Tut was popular enough to become a comic book character. Due to copyright reasons, King Tut was renamed Pharaoh.
