Trivia:
The scene of the Batmobile leaving the Batcave was filmed at Bronson Cavern in Hollywood Hills. A problem run into when filming the scene was that the Batmobile was just about the same width as the cave entrance. To keep from ripping the fenders off of George Barris' creation, they undercranked the cameras so it could come out slowly and then later sped up the film to give the illusion of speed.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: 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
Author: David Melo (meloda) from Oregon, USA

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!
