  1. The Adam West Batman TV Series Actually Saved the Batman Comics, So Here’s Some More Trivia About It

    Holy trivia, Batman!

    Everyone has nostalgia for the campy 1966 Batman TV show, but without it, we might be living in a Batman-less world. It revitalized slumping sales of Batman comics at the time, despite readers' complaints that it also brought too much campiness to the book. That's just one of the little known facts we learned about the show today.

  2. Speaking of ’60s Batman and Futurama, Here’s ’60s Batman in Futurama

    What, you aren't always talking about Batman and Futurama on a constant loop?

    Futurama is ending soon -- again. But before that, it looks like Matt Groening and crew are looking to get the most out of their final season, and that includes getting Batman stars Adam West and Burt Ward to do a special guest appearance on the show. They recently released images of the character models on the Comedy Central website, and they look sufficiently Batman-y to make me very happy about the state of the world. Admit it, you really have been hoping those two would get back together for another Return to the Batcave. I refuse to hear otherwise.

  3. TV’s Robin, Burt Ward, Comments on Current Robin Events

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    It’s a terrible choice to kill off Robin. Why bite the hand that feeds you? ... Robin should only die in people's imaginations! Or in a state of primal ecstasy! -- Burt Ward. Well, I can certainly understand Ward's distress over the fate of a fictional character that he's close to, even more when he's responsible for embodying one of the most iconic versions of that character. Although it's worth noting that this isn't the first time this has happened, nor is the current Robin even the same character as the one he played in the television show - Wait, did he say in a state of primal ecstasy?

  4. Holy Geeky Documentary Batman! PBS’ Pioneers of Television Takes on Superheroes. [VIDEO]

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    Watch Superheroes on PBS. See more from Pioneers of Television.

    I'm a low-level documentary-a-holic (shut up, it's a thing), and when the documentaries are geeky it's even better. And yeah, this episode of PBS's Pioneers of Television, about the superhero shows of the '60s, '70s, and '80s, is narrated by Ryan Seacrest. But I can let that slide if I'm watching Lynda Carter, Julie NewmarAdam West, Burt Ward, Lou Ferrigno and more talk about the history of superheroes on TV for an hour.
