Today Conan O’Brien made the announcement on his Twitter feed that the 1960’s Batman TV Series would finally get a home video release. Warner Bros. will release all 120 episodes together in a complete series box set in 2014.
Starring Adam West as the titular hero, “Batman” ran on ABC for 120 episodes from 1966 to 1968 and has become a fan favorite featuring Burt Ward as Robin, Yvonne Craig as Batgirl, Burgess Meredith as the Penguin, and Cesar Romero as the Joker.
This was my favorite television program when I was a kid and I have been hoping that all of the episodes would be available to share with my daughter! More information on the box set will be released soon, according to Warner Bros.
With Batman celebrating his 75th year as a pop culture icon this year, the timing couldn’t be better!
