Re: Check Out DC’s Strange Announcement of the BATMAN TV Series

The first mention of the show in Variety was August 25, 1965 and Adam is listed for the show on September 22, 1965.

Funny, there's no mention whatsoever of doing a feature first as a way to launch the series.

Another Bat-myth busted?

Re: Fourth Season Myth

Wham-O (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wham-O) produced the show in an effort to promote toys.

Screen Gems picked up BATFINK on March 8, 1967:

Re: ABC Second Season Reruns

With three of her second season appearances rerun in the summer, I suspect the Catwoman ratings were above average for the second season.

Re: Noisy Visitors to the Set

There was at least one blooper reel for an end-of-season wrap party. I tried to find it for Adam when I was assembling his early TV work for him in the late '80's. I spoke to several people that should have known where it was, including archivists at ABC, 20th Century Fox, William Dozier and Charles...

I wonder if the August 16/17 rerun of "The Cat's Meow" had anything to do with that reference?

Re: Second Season Villains

Well, that's the date it hit the papers. I'm guessing it was sent out a few days earlier.

Re: Noisy Visitors to the Set

My pleasure, Chuck.

I'm just amazed they would allow so many children on the set. With such a tight shooting schedule - and the very real possibility of noise and re-takes - that's very surprising.
