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.

And you thought the 60's version of Batman was campy...
5 November 2000 | by Dougie BSee all my reviews

Here's an idea...

Let's take all of DC Comics' top Super-heroes... and make a sitcom out of them!

That's exactly what this was, laughtrack and all. Think 'Superfriends' in live action form. This series contained a total of two episodes, the first one being all of the heroes trying to spoil a plot of world domination against a number of villians. And it all took place between a park, a gas station, a dirt road, and their headquarters.

The second episode was a roast hosted by Ed McMahon, where all of the heroes were humiliated by former friends and family members. Just plain painful to watch.
