Trivia

The original cowl Adam West wore in the 1966 Batman TV Series was stripped and recovered by the seamstress who made the cowl for Legends of the Superheroes. She neglected to take photos and worked from memory to make her cowl. When she made it, the neck was too short, the cowl was a different color, and there were different markings on the front.

Mind-Blowing Show I Never Knew About
25 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

Australia calling. I never knew this even existed until just hours ago when, by chance, I bumped into on YouTube. Amazing! When I saw Batman and Robin talking like the 1960s B&R my jaw hit the ground! How could this of been made without anybody ever talking about it over the last three decades? A live action Adam West/Burt Ward Batman show in 1979!

I have read so many things about Batman/Adam West, I have seen a few television shows on Adam West, but no mention of this??

This is eleven years after Batman (1966-68) ended but Adam and Burt look just great! And they are sometimes with my other caped friend Captain Marvel which makes it even better!

You can say what you like about the bad jokes, and I admit the non-Batman parts of this show are mostly unwatchable, but hey, when B&R are present the whole thing is well worth watching...and I want it on DVD.
