Topic: TV Shows
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4062 - I wanted to mention that today is the 50th Anniversary of the Batman TV Show back in 1966! Yes... Today!
It doesn't seem that long ago to me, but then again, I was just a teenager, (aged 13), when it first appeared.
I of course watched it on TV, for all three seasons, seeing almost every episode, almost all 120 of them, for the three seasons that it ran on ABC TV.
A few years back I was asked by Jim Beard to be one of the contributors for his then projected book titled: 'Gotham City 14 Miles'. I gladly accepted the challenge and wrote my chapter for the book. It was fun doing so, and I thank Jim Beard for the assignment!
To think that today, a few years later after that book was published, comes the 50th Anniversary of that magical date when the Batman TV Show burst on the screen with its Pow! Zap! Bam!... WoW what excitement that was!
Plus today you can buy a legitimate copy of all 120 episodes on DVD, not like when I had to buy a bootleg copy to refresh my memory to write my chapter for the 'Gotham City 14 Miles' book! (For more info on GC14M book, see this link for past blogs on the book.)
Congrats to the Batman TV Show on celebrating its 50th Anniversary!
