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.

Thank God I'm Not Crazy
27 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You can't imagine how relieved I feel to know that I'm in good company with others who have seen this before. Like one other person indicated, I was beginning to think I dreamed this up. I've always been into comics so when I talk to people today (who claim to be even more into them)about these episodes, they say they never heard of them.

I remember seeing them when I was about 7 years old and thought they were extremely funny and entertaining. That's why I can't understand why some of the other reviews are so critical. Isn't this show SUPPOSED to be campy and cheesy? I find it amazing that so many people who crave the substantial often times don't know where to look for it. And to add insult to injury, they look for it in places it OBVIOUSLY can't be found. C'mon guys, I got the humor when I was 7!! Lighten up a bit.

I've recently ordered a brand new copy in DVD format off eBay.
