I have signed their guest book. Thanks for letting us know. To the great Batcave in the sky! We'll meet him there.

He will be missed. Rest in peace Leslie and thank you for the huge part you played in what for a long time was the only part of the '66 Batman world that we could own on home video.

Living to such a age is amazing in itself.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Martinson.
