Re: Funko!!! 4 inch figs!!!!

I just noticed this... they used a modern Bat logo, from the comics. Even though it's cool looking, I thought they would've used something a bit more retro. -Jeremy I thought the same when I saw the box art for the SDCC Red Exclusive version. I believe that the Funko rep interviewed on The Batcave ...

Burt Ward Promos on H&I, MeTV

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned it, but Burt Ward has done a few promos that run during Batman's showings on Heroes and Icons and MeTV. The H & I spot appears after the opening credits and Burt says, "Brought to you in part by Gentle Giants Dog Food." The MeTV spot has Burt superimposed over...

Re: The "King Tut" museum exterior

It is also the exterior of the Batman Museum per this collection of interstitials/promos/bumpers for TV Land's Batmanathon in 2002. Check the video at 3:33.

MeTV Remembers Adam West on Saturday

http://www.metv.com/stories/metv-pays-tribute-to-adam-west-all-day-saturday-june-17 A nice sampling of many of Mr. West's guest appearances and early TV roles supplemented with the first two episodes of Batman. I'm glad they did their homework and went deeper than a Batman marathon. Here is their In...

Re: Adam has died

A sad day in Gotham City.

I am so glad that later in life he was able to receive the good will and adulation of a generation that considered him their hero. He was a touchstone of my childhood.

Thank you, Mr. West.

Re: Batman 1966 Japanese Sonorama

What great artwork! I've always been intrigued by the fact that the 60s merchandise had such an array of illustrations. While some of it may have been off-model, I really miss that aspect in today's merchandising, which repurposes the same style guide graphics across multiple brands. Mind you, I lov...

Quite a few years back,the CPT.

Re: wish list thread

I'm not certain why no one else has thought of this with the current fad, but I would love a reprinting of the Whitman Batman coloring books issued during the 60s. They generally took their cue from the trappings of the series. They were reissued in the 70s in edited form with the original copyright...

Re: Adam Julie PSA commercials

Thank you for sharing the link. I had not seen these before and enjoyed them tremendously. The message is a serious one, but bringing in these icons to give it brings a smile to my face. There is truly something to be said for the familiarity of having them in your home for so many years that they b...

Re: New Green Hornet...a serious take

I'm pleased to be wrong with my presumption that the property would be perceived as damaged goods for some time after the last movie, though bringing a property to a studio does not guarantee a film will actually be made, as the article notes. I'll reserve judgment until a trailer is out, but if it ...

Rare Yvonne Craig Guest Appearance on Gettv

It's always fun to find a guest appearance of one of the Batcast when least expected, particularly one with Yvonne Craig as she made a career of episodic tv. Gettv will air the rare 1961 sitcom Peter Loves Mary episode "That Certain Age" on Tuesday, November 29 at 7:35 AM Eastern. This series has no...
