    Dick Tracy had one of the single broadest rogues' galleries of villains outside of Batman. If the pilot had one of their established villains (Big Boy, Pruneface, Flattop, or even Mumbles), chances are it would have survived at least the entire year (as The Green Hornet did).

    But Dozier didn't help matters by having his announcement of the next episode follow the closing credits. If the announcement had followed the epilogue and preceded the credits, the show might also have gone beyond pilot.

    Still, it was better than what happened to his take on Wonder Woman; that one never went beyond a five-minute screen test.
