5 thoughts on “On This Day In Bat-History

  1. Can anyone advise if the television series (live action, not the cartoons) will ever be released on DVD?

  2. It has been released but is currently out of print. I see used boxes sets available on Amazon.

    Bragging rights: An ex-girlfriend’s father was one of the Penguin’s henchman.

  3. The movie with the immortal line, “ever have one of those days where you just can’t get rid of a bomb” is fairly easy to find on DVD.

  4. To use an expression from that guy from That Other Comic Book Company, “Sheesh!” You’d think I could write my HTML code better. Third time’s the Noodnik.

    Yes, we have that movie on DVD, which is readily available even if episodes of the series aren’t — but there’s also a new comic with writing and art deliberately in the style of the show, so you can get your fave, newest bat-issue every bat-month!

    On January 12, 1966, having read about the upcoming series in a one-line notation in an issue of TV Guide the previous September, I fought to stay home from a movie because I would *die* if I missed the premier of Batman. When the commercials showed someone who was apparently the Riddler being caught by a not-quite-resolvable batarang with a line attached to it, and when the opening credits showed the Dynamic Duo running and caricatures of the Riddler, the Joker, and the Penguin, I was in 10-year-old heaven, because even the Superman t.v. show never had Lex Luthor, Braniac, Bizarro, or any other of my Mort Weisinger-edited favorite super-villains.

    You had to be there, at that age, at that time, to truly understand it.
