My Fond Memories of the 1960s Batman / The Dark Knight : New Batman Villain Revealed

This is the Batman that I grew up with...not the ridiculous nippled-suit Batman of George Clooney nor the shortest Batman of all, Michael Keaton nor the Jim Morrison-inspired Batman of Val's the lovingly adored Batman of the 1960s - ADAM WEST !


Batman starring Adam West along with Burt Ward as the boy wonder was shown on channel 7 (GMA-7 today) here in the Philippines in the mid-to-late 1960s. Channel 7 aka RBS (Republic Broadcasting System) was originally owned by Bob Stewart, endearingly known as Uncle Bob and I remember an episode just before the showing, Uncle Bob reported a tragic news about a Filipino boy who mimicked Batman with a cloth cape around his neck but the cape got entangled on a Meralco post instantly killing him. Since then I always remember never to place a cloth cape around my neck.

I also remember when the Green Hornet (Van Williams) with his sidekick Kato (Bruce Lee) guested in Batman. I fondly remember Bruce Lee (Kato) fist-fighting with Burt Ward (Robin), of course Bruce Lee had to gave way so Burt Ward could make a punch on him.
