45 Syndicated Years Of Batman

Post by AHTrois » Wed Mar 20, 2013 4:09 pm

As we look back on the 45th anniversary of the series Batfinale on ABC, we also must reflect 45 years to the day of its debut in syndication in markets across the nation. Here are a couple of trade ads heralding Batman in syndication, in 1968 and 1983.

In the Pgh.area Batman reruns started in Oct.'68 - Sept.'70 on WSTV Ch.9 Steubenville and WIIC[now WPXI]Ch.11 Pgh.Jan'69-Jan.'72.Later reruns were shown on WPGH TV Ch.53 and WPTT Ch.22 in Pgh.I remember being disappointed as a kid during the Apollo moonwalk in July '69 Ch.9 pre empted pt.1 of The Zodiac Crimes for news coverage and instead of airing it the next day they showed The Joker's Hard Times the next day!

In the Cleveland area, WUAB started programming on September 15, 1968 (a Sunday) and began showing Batman the following day--for a full hour.
