Anything i've missed? (Not had my coffee as yet this morning...)
A couple of additions:
- CBC "Periscope" documentary about the Batman series (online)
- Interview with Batman movie cast members (Adam, Cesar, Lee) and William Dozier prior to the film premiere event in Austin TX, with local newscaster Jean Boone (online)
- ABC 1966 fall TV-season preview, hosted by Adam and Burt as Batman and Robin
- U.S. Savings Bonds PSA by Adam as Batman
P.S. @alfredthebutler, Ben included the road safety ad in his list, as "Kerb Drill."
Roast of the Superheroes is included in the Legends of the Superheroes DVD-R from Warner Archives.
It's arguably worse than Legends which in of itself is bad.
Would I get it? Yup. It's nowhere near as sad as seeing Adam suited up in the early 80s at those car shows where he does his schtick about "have you seen any oddly dressed people around here?" In Legends, which is mind numbingly dumb-- he and Burt both look good in their costumes and there is an element of fun to it, especially if you watch it with a little kid who this is aimed for (I hope).
I wasn't aware of it until it showed up on DVD several years ago, but I can say with certainty that I would have treasured it as a child. I would have been keenly aware, even at five-years-old, that it was vastly inferior to the original series, but just seeing Adam and Burt with the Justice League would have been enough.
There is a treatment written by William Dozier for a proposed 'Batman Vs. Godzilla' film.
There were a bunch of storybook/record combos based on the episodes of the TV show published in Japan during the late 1960's, but of course they are Japanese language.
Purity and virtue-BATMAN!
Cowards run away!
Batman saves the day!
Also, Boy Wonder Robin.
Batman and Robin-caped crusaders at night!
BIFF! POW! BAM! BATMAN!
The Batman screentest with Adam and Burt, which is online.
The Batgirl pilot/presentation, which is online.
BTS of the pilot episode, which is online.
Home movie footage of the movie premiere, where the cast is in a parade, which is online.
1966 Driving Safety clip, with Adam as Batman in Batmobile.
Silent outtakes with clapboard from a Louie the Lilac episode.
Adam interviewed, not in costume, on set of a King Tut episode.
Adam signing autographs, not on costume, from circa 1966.
There is also footage of Adam and Burt in costume circa 1966 at a personal appearance in the Adam West bio.
Production values are way down, but still a fun look back at " What we had then".
I just ordered Naked, I can't believe I haven't seen this yet.
Great list, what about the videos online of Adam and Burt, at the car show signing autographs? In costume.

I accidentally found "Meet Dr No-Face" (#3) being sold quite cheaply, perhaps because he's original to these digest-size magazines, but so far copies of "Batman... and The Ringer" (issue #1) have been asking $100 on eBay, or a high minimum bid!
