Batman in Popular Culture

Professor Chuck Coletta just contacted me and he has agreed to accept my topic for inclusion at the Batman International Conference hosted at The Department of Popular Culture at the Browne Popular Culture Library at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio on Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13, 2019.

The Batman in Popular Culture conference aims to examine Batman in Popular Culture in all mediums and media. I have offered the following topic for inclusion in the conference:

Title: “A Look at the 1966 Batman Test Pilot Episode Artifacts & Actors and Compare & Contrast to the TV Show

Research Focus: “Highlight the difference between the actors that tested for the role (Adam West/Burt Ward) vs. (Lyle Waggoner/Peter Deyell) and the changes of the Batman Costume and Cowl and the reasons why. Exhibit actual artifacts from the test screening.

Synopsis: Highlight the differences between the styles of the two sets of actors that auditioned for the 1966 Batman TV Series, Adam West/Burt Ward & Lyle Waggoner/Peter Deyell. Provide details of actual never before released interviews from Lyle Waggoner and Peter Deyell talking about their time auditioning for the roles. Peter Deyell explained being on set to help test the three different style of Robin costumes the company had in stock to test for the show. Share Peter Deyell’s thoughts on him and Lyle Waggoner landing the lead roles Explain why the 1966 Batman Test Costume & Cowl was different than the version worn during the TV show. Explore what facets (Batcave, Bat computer, Bat Study, Dick Grayson/Bruce Wayne persona) from the screen test remained for the 1966 TV show.

Exhibit the actual costume that Adam West & Lyle Waggoner wore for the actual screen test and contrast it to the actual style wore during the 1966 series. The costume has been in a private collection and has never been exhibited and is known to exist by a very small number of people. Exhibit one of the actual 1966 Screen Test Robin costumes that was not used on the show and highlight the physical design reasons how it differed. The costume was worn by actor Peter Deyell during the testing.

As part of my research for my presentation, I just spoke to one of the original DC artists that first drew what would become the 1966 Batman TV costume design (yellow field with bat). Previously, no circular yellow field was used and the bat was consistent with what was first drawn back in 1939. Per my interview with the artist, I was able to determine the first time the new design logo was used, who was instrumental in changing the logo, and the first time the logo was used on a Batman comic cover. My finding will be revealed at the Batman International Conference. Troy
