Batman (1966 Television Series)

From Mental Block

Batman was a 1966-1969 American action-adventure series that centered on the crime-fighting "Dynamic Duo" of Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward). The series was known for its outlandish, campy style, in contrast to the darker tones used in previous and later portrayals of the Batman character. The series costarred Alan Napier as Batman's loyal butler Alfred, and (starting in Season 3) Yvonne Craig as Batgirl.
