Re: Positive thoughts on 3rd Season

I liked that the writers often remembered that Batgirl, in her civilian identity, was a college graduate with a degree (I'm guessing a Masters) in library science, and depicted her as highly intelligent and resourceful. For example, in "Penguin's Clean Sweep," Robin (hilariously) describes the orga...

Re: New 1966 Batman merchandise FANTASY thread

This was started on the old board, so lets renew it here. What are the items you'd like to see come the Spring of 2013 for the new 1966 line? My top five are: 1) 3 3/4" Batman figures with a Batcave playset with Batmobile. Good, but my fantasy: make it a DC Direct 6" figure line with accurately sca...

Re: Who would you pick to play Poison Ivy?

She doesn't make another appearance until 1969 and then doesn't appear again until 8 years later in 1977. Interesting. Funny thing is, even during the Filmation series of '68-'69, she could not make the cut there--even as a one shot, while gimmicky, pointless characters like "Simon the Pieman" were...

Re: Actors an Actresses in Batman and....

I meant guest stars in Batman that made guest appearances in other shows running in that 2-3 year time period, but I think this topic is going to become worn out soon.... Not if you find single series with a large number of Bat-guests (pre or post series), instead of random series with only one, pe...

Re: Actors an Actresses in Batman and....

You could make this a little too endless a topic if we're just going by someone from Batman was a guest on one other program. Something a little more narrow like joint appearances on another program that in light of their Bat appearances can seem amusing. Agreed. While joint appearance on the same ...

Re: Batman: The Movie's Success

As far as why the movie wasn't a bigger success, I've read that Batmania was already waning by that point. In my opinion Semple and Martinson had already given up the more serious tone of first season to begin the downfall of the series (compare the riddles from first season to the "sparrow with a ...

Re: Positive thoughts on 3rd Season

S3 related, but a bit off-topic: during the series syndicated run in the 70s and '89 revival tied to the Burton movie, the season three theme seemed to be altered a little, almost as if a heavy bass sound was added to the basic Hefi track. Since the 2000s, S3's main theme sounds like one used for th...

Make them smile up there, Billy.

Re: 1966 Movie on this Saturday Night

Yep, the movie really butchered for the Svengoolie parts. I have not watched a version this sliced up since it was syndicated in the 1970s!

Re: 1966 Movie on this Saturday Night

I was aware of the MeTV line up, but is "Svengoolie" (SP) interrupting the regular series--or the other fantasy series on the schedule?
