You know, let's look at the time frame. Batman came out in January 1966 and a lot of shows tried to copy it. In September 1966, Batman producer William Dozier got another half hour show on, The Green Hornet. It had the same production values but the shows were more or less played straight rather than Batman's absurdity factor.

Maybe Roddenberry was trying to do something in that style.
A.K.A. The Kato Show, as it was known in Hong Kong.
