The Archer (Art Carney)

Just as Batman and Robin do not go at crime-fighting alone, Archer needs fellow partners in crime to assist him with his malicious schemes:

  • Maid Marilyn (portrayed by Barbara Nichols) - Archer's female assistant. Her name is a spoof of Maid Marian. She is usually seen cooking, eating, or having just eaten a fried chicken leg.
  • Big John (portrayed by Loren Ewing) - Archer's henchman. His name is a spoof of Little John.
  • Crier Tuck (portrayed by Doodles Weaver) - Archer's henchman. His name is a spoof of Friar Tuck.



  • Like Puzzler, Archer was also the name of a villain from the Superman comics.
  • According to the show's writer Stanley Ralph Ross, this Archer was created for the series.
