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.

A very hilarious parody of superheroes!
17 August 2001 | by (Newberry, SC) – See all my reviews

I saw both episodes, the normal episode and the roast, on a tape you can buy at many large comic conventions (so to everyone who wants a copy, that's how you can find one).

These things were flat out funny. They appeal to both the lifelong comics-lover and the person whose only experience with comics were the Batman movies.

The acting ranged from horrible (Charlie Callas) to the mediocre (Jeff Altman) to the great (William Schallert, Garrett Craig). The jokes were great.

Together, these are two very entertaining hours you won't forget. The tape should only cost around $20, and I highly recommend it!
