There were a number of great Batman Beach towels in the 60s. Wonderful art by comics greats.
I have the top 3 in my collection, still working on adding the bottom 3 although I'm not sure if the last one
was a beach, bath or dish towel.

That last one, with them running, was a beach towel. I had it and my mom folded over the top of the towel, sewed it together and then I ran a dowel through it and used it as a hanging banner in my bedroom. Years later, my two nephews got to use it and more recently, my son took his baths with it. It's held up incredibly well over the years of use.

One question. On the second towel image you gotta wonder how did Robin end up in a red t-shirt?

Now that's cool. A long time ago I purchased a Spider-Man beach towel that converted to a backpack for kids. The little girl next door was fascinated with Spider-man so I bought one for her and my daughter. Imagine a Batman version with a cape. I also recently saw a Batman logo cap with a cape on the back side. Imagine a desert cap with a neck shield

The two non logo towels are thin, probably for laying at the beach but not toweling off the Batman logo version is a real bath towel

It arrived yesterday and I laid it out on the hood of my Prius for the photo. Gonna grab a green Sharpie and fix those pesky red sleeves. Had to do the same thing with the HW Elite Batcycle. The difference is the Batcycle retailed for over $100 and the towel only set me back $13. After some trimming and the application of hem tape I now have a neat curtain for the Batcave.
