Crazy Credits

Then end credit sequence features Batman doing the "Batusi", which he did in the pilot episode for the 1966 TV series. Catwoman also does her own "Catusi". The dance names are references to a popular dance of the 1960s, "The Watusi". The format of the sequence is also similar to the end sequences of many of the 60s beach movies starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, although the dances were performed by Buster Keaton and his go-go girlfriend, Bunny.

West and Ward return
20 November 2016 | by DarkVulcan29See all my reviews

If you are a fan of the 1960's Batman, which starred Adam West and Burt Ward, you're gonna be in for a treat here, this is like a reunion movie to that series. Julie Newmar reprises her role has Catwoman , but the other actors who played Joker, Penguin, and Riddler, have all passed away, so different actor are providing there voices, and I gotta say the actor who voices The Joker sounds amazingly like the original Joker Ceser Romero, to the point where I thought it was Romero.

The animation here is not bad, not terrific but not terrible either. Adam West and Burt Ward provide there voices in the characters that made them famous, feeling like they never really left. It never really takes itself seriously, just like the 60's show never really did. But in parts it also parodies the more serious Batman movies in spots. There is one part it spoofs the three different Catwomen from the original show. If you are tired of the overly serious Batman films, then check this animated flick out.
