HOLY GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY BATMAN!!!

HAPPY GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY to the Batman TV series

The Batman TV series first aired on January 12, 1966.  It’s amazing that 50 years later the shows are still being shown.  There were only 3 years of the series, a total of 120 shows.  Adam West was Batman, and Burt Ward played Robin.  Check out Wikipedia’s listing for the show:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman_%28TV_series%29

Each week, there was a guest villain on the show.  Some of my personal favorites are Cat Woman, the Riddler, the Penguin, and the Joker. (pictured here)
