Trivia

Burt Ward apparently did here what he could never do in the Batman TV series. Instead of using skin-colored tights that caused numerous problems, he displayed neatly shaved legs. See more »

You won't believe what you're seeing...
12 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

I recently acquired this DVD release with the added bonus of the SUPERHERO CELEBRITY ROAST...

I knew watching this would be a challenge, though despite warnings from a friend, nothing could have prepared me for just how bad it was! It was 90 minutes of my life wasted that I will never get back, and would be worthy of inclusion if any city was going to put on a CRINGE FESTIVAL.

If you think you are up to the challenge and brave enough, order it online and see if you can get through it in one sitting.

... Be afraid... Be very afraid...
