I saw recently saw an Episode of Batman, for the first time in decades.

I hadn't realized how campy it was.

What I did realize was that the Adam West Batman was the undisputed heart and Source of the Captain Kirk stilted Delivery.

Adam West created the Shatner voice.

Aye. Have a dream !
And, of course, we'll always have the memory of Sheldon's Birthday in, "The Big Bang Theory," when his friends decided to invite Batman. :notworthy:

West reputedly had a ball making the episode.

I watched a documentary about super heroes a few weeks ago, & it stated that Hef had been behind the creation of the BATMAN TV series. apparently, they showed the old BATMAN serials in the PLAYBOY clubs, & viewers found them hilarious.
