In the hustle and bustle of SDCC, it can be easy to forget that time is brutally galloping apace and soon it will be winter. That’s okay though! Look forward to hibernating this year with the first-ever release of the entire Batman 1966 series on DVD and Blu-Ray, complete with exactly the kind of retro swag Adam West fans will appreciate.
On November 11th, Warner Bros. will be releasing the show’s three seasons (that’s 120 fabulously campy episodes) in celebration of Batman’s 75th year. Each set will be individually numbered and come with a Hot Wheels Replica Batmobile, trading cards, pictures of the show from Adam West’s archives, a message from West to fans, and 3 hours of bonus features. (Sadly, it seems batarangs will not be included.)
Of course, all that nostalgia comes with a price. The Complete Series on DVD will run fans $199.70, while the Blu-Ray is $269.97. Batman will also be available for purchase on Digital HD, or cash-strapped fans can take home the first season for “just” $39.98. Way I think of it, though, that teeny-tiny Batmobile comes free! Besides, the more money you spend on wholesome ’60s TV shows, the less you have left over for vices.
