Best Bat- Birthday wishes to Ms. Newmar, and hopefully many more to come! And, as a side note, my gosh, she is still stunning at 86!

Re: I'm back...:)

I have never been what you would consider a major contributor here, but I have been around for a while. It just dawned on me the other day that I hadn't checked in here since Adam's death; and before that, my activity here had tailed off a little, as well... so here I am to catch up... ha ha! I can'...

Re: Batman Lava Soap Commercial

Very cool! Thanks for posting! Being born after the series originally aired, I have long wondered who sponsored the show, and if we would ever be able to see cast commercials (or if they even existed.) Glad to see this one, and let's hope a few more turn up some day.

Re: Adam has died

Just found out the news about 10 minutes ago, and felt the need to come here. With Mr. West's advancing years, this is one of those things that while we all knew would come someday, still comes as a shock and punch to the gut when it becomes reality. I am very fortunate to have met Mr. West on one o...

Re: Burt Reynolds as Batman?

I really can't imagine anyone doing the "camp" Batman any better than Adam West, but if you check out Reynolds as Quint Asper on Gunsmoke, I think he would have done a fine job as Batman, maybe in a little more "serious" take of the character.

Re: Who would YOU use to replace Y.G. for a remake of the 1966 Batman series?

No offense, but Justin Bieber would get a huuuuge "no!" vote from me in any Batman project, real or imagined.

Re: 50 years to the day

In an interesting parallel, just like in 2016, LBJ would give the State of the Union address on Jan. 12, 1966. I guess this explains why there were no episodes of The Big Valley on ABC, Green Acres or Dick Van Dyke on CBS, or Bob Hope Presents the Chrysler Theater on NBC aired on the night of our be...

50 years to the day

Like many others here, I'm sure, I will be in front of the tv tomorrow (1/12) night and push "play" on the blu ray player at precisely 6:30 pm (50 years to the minute that Hi Diddle Riddle premiered here in the Central Time Zone.) I'm also going to dig into my dvd collection to play some other shows...

Re: Wrangler Jane Melody Patterson has died

It's been a tough year for some all-time television beauties... Elly May, Batgirl, and now Wrangler Jane. It makes me sad that we have lost, and are continuing to lose so much talent from what I believe is the greatest era in entertainment. Rest in peace, Ms. Patterson, I enjoyed your work on F Troo...

Re: Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane Is Gone...

Of course, Roscoe was his signature role, but Mr. Best was a very prolific actor all through the 1950s and 60s, especially in many of the top westerns of the day. I also enjoyed him as "the guitar player" on The Andy Griffith Show. One that I wasn't aware of until a quick IMDB search was a guest rol...

Re: Anyone here old enough to remember the original run?

I was born in 1971, so I missed out on the original airings. My question is, who sponsored the show? Does anyone know if there were commercials for the sponsor(s) made by the cast as there was for other shows during the 1960s?

Re: R.I.P. Gene Gene, the Dancing Machine

As a young grade school kid, I used to love the Gong Show, and my favorite part (and most fondly remembered to this day) was when Gene Gene the Dancing Machine would show up. It just seemed to me that the whole place would go up for grabs when he shuffled out. Thanks for the memories and RIP, Gene.
