I had no idea!

I watched the show as a youngster so I never picked up on this.

Who knew?

Batman as he was meant to be. Lawful good.

None of this "dark knight" shit.

And Cesar Romero is still the best Joker EVAR! :)

I met Adam West in a hotel bar in Maine. He's the one and only True Batman.

As a kid I don't think I realized just how campy that TV show was.

I grew up in the country and we didn't get any stations that ran reruns of Batman (I was born in 1970) but sometimes I saw it at a friend's house in town who got cable.

Personally it's too campy for my taste. I liked that game Arkham City and the Dark Night, and that sort of "grittier, darker" aesthetic.

Batman comic books of that era were plenty campy, too.

Remember Bat-Mite, Batman's extra-dimensional silly nemesis?

Unlike Mxyzptlk the schtick was he was a "fan" who kept getting underfoot at inopportune moments.
