Special Note: There was no 66 Batman merchandise available at this time. No Hot Wheels, action figures, t-shirts, models, comics or posters. Hotwheels would not show up for almost another two years, merchandise would be six years away and the DVD/ Blu Rays would be a little over eight. Chuck Williams and Williams Studio 2 were just about to get into the cowl, costume and prop world. You actually see us taking measurements, notes and photos for ourselves and to send to Chuck. These were the dark ages for us 66 Batman fans product wise. BUT, Adam, Yvonne, Malachi and so many other were still with us to meet and interact with. In that way, we were rich. Here's to their memory in ours.
Personal Note: This would be the first time I met Yvonne, her sister Meridel, Malachi and Julie. This would be the first time I got to meet Mark Hardeman and see his amazing original Batman and Robin costumes that we would later display at the Hollywood museum 12 years later. Also the first time I got really meet and interact with later to be 66 Batman animator, comic artist and dear friend, Ruben Procopio. So many firsts.
This one was filmed by Mark Hardeman and edited by yours truly. I've tried to upgrade the original standard NTSC footage through AI software into HD 60fps. So let's go back to those days of yesteryear and watch some HD video of our Burbank 2006 - Batman 40th Adventure! Enjoy!
You can tell how special of a person Julie is.
Its cool how a common love for something can bring people together.
Great video, thanks for sharing it Scott. Bit of a "who's who".
Did I see Andrew (Andy) in the room as well?
Ruben drawing everyone a sketch.
What an amazing couple days that must have been.
I feel like I was there and it makes me miss all you guys so much. What memeories!
Thank you for sharing this.

That's the control mechanism for the 1977 Batman String Puppet. Back in 1977 they made a series of three super-Heroes string puppets: Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.
