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 summons the Dynamic Duo on the Batphone with the latest emergency threatening Gotham City. Racing to the scene of the crime in the jet-powered Batmobile, Batman and Robin must (with the help of their trusty utility-belts) thwart the efforts of a rogues gallery of flamboyant arch-villains, including the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler and the Catwoman.

Trivia

Eartha Kitt took over the role of Catwoman in the final season because Julie Newmar was busy filming Mackenna's Gold (1969). Some of ABC's southern affiliates objected to the casting of Kitt, but Charles B. Fitzsimons' said he and the show's other producers didn't care about the issue. See more »

Goofs

The Batsignal shown in the sky did not match the silhouette on the glass - the silhouette had a visible neck, while the projected image did not. Also, the tail was longer in relation to the rest of the image on the silhouette than it was in the projected image. See more »

Crazy, but I still like it
28 July 2002 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

This show is completely nuts! It is SO goofy, and I can realize that now that I'm older. I watched this from when I was 7-12, and always loved it. I still like to watch it whenever they air the re-runs, but now laugh AT it, not WITH it! I've heard of crime fighting, but this is ridiculous! STILL, I like to watch it because I'm a fan of Adam West and Burt "HOLY" Ward! I'd recommend it to all kids who like super-heros, but any body else had better prepare themselves for the "cheesiest" ride of their lives! "HOLY TELEVISION! IT'S ON EVERY DAY NOW!" So folks, tune in tomorrow (and every day): same bat time, same bat channel!
