The ludicrously straightlaced Caped Crusader battles evil in this parody of the comics.

Storyline

Wealthy entrepreneur Bruce Wayne and his ward Dick Grayson lead a double life: they are actually the crime fighting duo Batman and Robin. A secret Batpole in the Wayne mansion leads to the Batcave, where Police Commissioner Gordon often calls the Bat-duo on the Batphone with the latest emergency threatening Gotham City. Racing to the scene of the crime in the Batmobile, Batman and Robin must (with the help of the trusty Bat-utility-belt) thwart the efforts of a variety of master criminals, including The Riddler, The Joker, Catwoman, and The Penguin.

Trivia

Despite the show's popularity, it has never been released on DVD. This is due to a rights dispute between 20th Century Fox, who produced the show, and Time-Warner, who own the character's publisher, DC Comics. Recently, rumors have speculated that Fox has no dispute with Warner Bros. or visa versa regarding the release of the series on DVD, the problem seems to stem from the work-for-hire companies the producers brought in to build the sets, among them being George Barris who designed the Batmobile. Their consent would be needed. See more »

Holy Hell Batman we'll live on forever!
24 May 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Troy Whigham's first up review here really nails it! I'll just add a few of my own observations.

Part of the show's brilliance was its (arguably intentional) ability to appeal to young and old. Plenty of action for the ankle-biters and black black humor for the thinking adult. So corny, it was brilliant and from a nostalgic viewpoint now, not so far behind Maxwell Smart. No one has delivered such throw-away deadpan lines as Adam West who turned "Batman" into an srt-form by the second series. Credit too must also go to Burt Ward whose acting career never recovered from his oneness with the Boy Wonder!

Outstanding supporting criminal nemesis' provided by the likes of Cesar Romero, Eartha Kitt, Victor Buono and of course Burgess Meredith as The Penguin and Frank Gorshin as Riddler!

Never to be seen again!
