      Time, and my fading memory, have mellowed the impact on me of the Batman television series from 1966. As a 9 year old in '66 I was in the "bulls eye" of Batman's target audience, but the show was so hammy I didn't like it!

      I could only look on in amazement as Batman quickly became a cultural phenomenon, and a "60's icon television show. Oh well!

      Soooooo - will the Batman Movie be included in the video release?

        My dad watched this show when it came out, he thought it was goofy too, but still watched it. "Holy hole in a donut Batman!"

        It seems this doesn't have a release date yet. Can someone please post in this thread when it's available? I want to pick this up!

          I used to watch this show a lot when I was younger, but now I can barely stay awake for an entire episode.

            The Simpsons parodied the TV show before.

            Some of us know what that was like.

                It's SUPPOSED to be hammy....

                  vkimo nailed it!

                  A lot of my friends in school felt the same way I did about the Batman TV Series, but the effect it had on my parents had to be seen to be believed.

                  My mom and dad just loved watching Batman, it was a "must see" at our house every week. In Fact I was floored by the positive response by my favorite aunt and uncle, neighbors and family friends, and all my teachers in school:
                  the Batman Series became a "Who's Who" of entertainment personalities in cameo appearances that became a real favorite by 1967 and 1968.

                  Remember, Batman in 1966 aired twice weekly, Thursday night and Friday night in my time zone. The result was an hour long story split into two 30 minute shows. Broadcasting was a different breed of animal back in the 1960's.
