Trivia

In his autobiography, Adam West explicitly regretted this project; specifically the extremely cheap production. Of note are that the episodes were recorded on videotape rather than film, the heroes' and villains' respective headquarters are clearly the same set, exterior shots all take place in the same park, even by the standards of the day, the special effects are crude, and most of the hero and villain costumes are of low quality.

I SWEAR I VAGUELY REMEMBER THIS DRIVEL...
20 November 2001 | by spriforeverSee all my reviews

When I was young, this was the greatest thing to ever happen to me because I was so into comic books. It's like a blur now, but I would love to see it again. It sucked, but in such a cool way. If I didn't meet up with someone else who remembers it as a blur, but knew that Adam West played the Batman role, I'd have never known the name of the movie.
