The first two are easy.

None. A hole has had the dirt removed.

Shoot the dog in June.

My favorite was (if memory serves me correctly) from the pilot:

There are three men in a boat with four cigarettes and no matches. How did they manage to smoke?

(...apologies to Michele for the reference to the e-vil Tobacco...)

Riddle me this Batman, What has yellow skin and writes?

A pencil.

Riddle me this Batman, What is it that no man wants to have but no man wants to lose?

Nothing.

"What has yellow skin and writes?"

A ball-point banana.

Banana is the correct one. I love that.

Riddle me this Batman, What are the chilliest 12 inches in the world?

I'm surprised that an Eskimo cock joke made it past the censors back then. Wakka wakka!

Riddle me this: Who's now assuming room temperature?

Sorry.

Heh.

When does a painter use a trigger instead of a brush?
-when he's a stickup artist.

What are the chilliest 12 inches in the world?
-cold feet

There are three men in a boat with four cigarettes and no matches. How did they manage to smoke?
--they throw one cigarette overboard and make the boat lighter

Jeff, technically the complete answer is:

They threw one cigarette overboard and made the boat a cigarette lighter...

"What has yellow skin and writes?"

Amy Tan?

"Riddle me this Batman, What is it that no man wants to have but no man wants to lose?"

...A bald head?

"Riddle me this Batman, What is it that no man wants to have but no man wants to lose?"

(Not confident on this answer, but...)

A job?...

a lawsuit :)
