Personal Quote:

As long as they write about the show I really couldn't care less what they have to say about it. Ahhh, criticism has never really bothered me; if you let it, as you well know, you can eat your heart out about every other morning for breakfast.


Not only produced the Batman (1966) TV series, but also served as the show's uncredited narrator, delivering the memorable sign-off, "Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel." On the 1966 Original Televison Soundtrack Album, for which Dozier provided the liner notes, the narrator is identified as "Desmond Doomsday". See more »
