Myself, Scott and other friends of the Message Board are getting together in April to attend this really great Tribute to Robert Butler.

Scott, Alex, Ruben, Jimmy and Myself had a really wonderful dinner in West LA followed by a great time at the Robert Butler tribute event. It was incredibly cool to get to watch "Hi Diddle Riddle/Smack in The Middle" on the big screen with an audience. Director and actor Thomas Carter gave a really heartfelt speech about Robert's work and their friendship over the years.

It was truly a unique and fun experience to enjoy the show on the big screen with so many other people. Lots of laughs, some files noticing things, that have been dissected to death on the board, for the first time.
They also showed the pilot for Hill Street Blues, which was cool to see again for the first time in 40 or so years, but it didn’t seem to touch the crowd in the same fashion.
It was also pretty cool to talk about almost nothing but Batman (except Alex’s shirt) for a few hours.
Thanks for a fabulous evening Chums, I look forward to the next one.

Now THAT"S a group to talk Batman with!!

So glad you had a good time. It's always fun to get a "behind the scenes" insight into a favorite show.
Robert Butler certainly set the bar high right out of the gate.

Dinner and a movie with friends sounds SO GOOD! Jealous!!!
Quick, Everyone, Flee for your lives, into the street!!!!
