Batman

Published:

The Batman TV show managed to draw some pretty big names of that time as guest stars. Some of them included Milton Berle, Art Carney, Joan Collins, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Carolyn Jones, Bruce Lee, Liberace, Ethel Merman, Roddy McDowall, Vincent Price and Shelley Winters.

Alan Napier who played Alfred the butler's cousin in real life was Neville Chanberlain who was the Prime Minister of Britain from 1937-1940!

The Batmobile was a modified 1955 Lincoln Futura.

Back in a day when you didn't hear so much about using seatbelts, Batman & Robin always did. In fact, the TV show honored by the National Safety Council for doing so!

For the first short season and second full season, the show had a distinction that few others can claim. It was one of the few programs ever on television to be aired two nights per week from January of 1966 to March of 1967! Most of those episodes were 2-parters with the first one ending with something terrible about to happen. Then you'd hear the announcer say, "Tune in tommorrow night; Same Bat-time, Same Bat-Channel"! You simply had to tune in the next night to find out what happened!

I liked when Jack Nicholson was the joker. "Wait until they get a load of me" No one else could have played that part. Danny Devino as the Penguim was perfect. I didn't get to see the whole movie when Chris O'Donnell was Robin but I will catch it. I also enjoyed when Michelle Phifer as Catwomen cut a flip and landed right in front of Batman and said "meow"LOL Batman is fun.
