This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Batman TV show (1966-68) starring Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and his teen partner Robin the Boy Wonder. The show was a huge hit when first released and still has a loyal following today. The show was a clever satire, not only on super heroes but also on 1960s pop-culture in general. Cinelinx celebrates ABC’s Batman at 50.
Do you long for the more innocent days when Adam West and Burt Ward raced across your television in Technicolor glory battling the charismatic villains of Gotham City? When you think of the Joker, does a Latino actor who refused to shave his mustache come to mind before Heath Ledger or Jack Nicholson? Do you constantly find yourself wondering where the "POW's" and the "BAM's" are as you sit through the Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan Dark Knight films? If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then Batman '66 Volume 1 is tailor-made for you!
I remember hurrying home weekday afternoons after school to watch the 1960's Batman TV series in syndication. I couldn't get enough of the Dynamic Duo's exciting world of crime fighting and action. As a child, that was the only Batman I knew. I didn't know about the Dark Knight Detective who at the very same time in the late 1970s was busy battling all sorts of supernatural villains in the comic books. All I knew was that the Caped Crusader and his energetic sidekick saved the world from a Rogue's Gallery of witty and colorful super villains.
