SMACK!!!

It's so good - the movie with Adam West and Burt Ward is great too.

And each episode had an educational interlude about why Robin should study or play the piano or some thing similar. And Julie Newmar really made the show worth watching.

The moment that sticks in my head is of Batman being tortured by being put in a huge Egyptian urn by King Tut, and then having pebbles dropped one by one on his head to make him go mad.

He gets out (duh!) and starts sword fighting some crony and King Tut wonders how he got out without going insane and Batman says something like 'It was easy.  I simply kept reciting the multiplication tables backwards in my head!'

He looks so smug when he says it aswell, that it's just perfection.  I don't think you'll hear that geektastic gem like that in The Dark Knight.

Also, that could prove to a useful tip to anyone being held in Guantanamo Bay.

Me too!  That's the one I remember to this day.  I loved that show and catwoman was dead sexy, even though I didn't yet know why...Batgirl too.

I remember the villains always ended up in Batman's lair and got dropped in a pit or machine or something...always lots of fighting and smashing of plywood chairs over henchmen.

One best left to childhood memory methinks.

This program is so cheesy, yet so brilliant at the same time. The fact that every episode ended with a punch up before they were both gassed and put into some 'death trap' which formed the cliffhanger for the next episode.


One of my favourite moments though is when the Batmobile breaks down, right next to a Batcycle placed in a nearby bush.

One of the funniest moments is in the movie where there a bomb in the pub and Batman's trying to take it out and put it somewhere else. He's running around with it for ages because every time he trys to dispose of it a group of nuns turn up or some children. Then when he finally explodes it Robin asks 'why didnt you just let the bomb go off in the pub' and Batman says 'alcoholics are people too Robin'. Sheer class.
Also who can forget that immortal line 'That porpoise died to save our lives Robin'

You must. Batman: The Movie is one of the funniest films ever.

nicked from imdb's quotes page:
Commissioner Gordon: It could be any one of them... But which one? Which ones?
Batman: Pretty *fishy* what happened to me on that ladder...
Commissioner Gordon: You mean where there's a fish there could be a penguin?
Robin: But wait! It happened at sea... Sea. C for Catwoman!
Batman: Yet, an exploding shark *was* pulling my leg...
Commissioner Gordon: The Joker!
Chief O'Hara: All adds up to a sinister riddle... Riddle-R. Riddler!
Commissioner Gordon: A thought strikes me... So dreadful I scarcely dare give it utterance...
Batman: The four of them... Their forces combined...
Robin: Holy nightmare!


Robin: [pointing toward the sky] That crazy missile! It wrote two more riddles before it blew up!
Batman: [reading a skywritten message] "What goes up white and comes down yellow and white?"
Robin: An egg!
Batman: [reading another skywritten message] "How do you divide seventeen apples among sixteen people?"
Robin: Make apple sauce!
Batman: [thinking out loud] Apples into applesauce - A unification into one smooth mixture. An egg - nature's perfect container. The container of all our hopes for the future.
Robin: A unification and a container of hope? United World Organization!
Batman: Precisely, Robin! And there's a special meeting of the Security Council today. If what I fear is true...
Robin: Wow! Let's commandeer a taxi!
Batman: No, Robin. Not at this time of day. Luckily, we're in tip-top condition. It'll be faster if we run. Let's go!

How dare you! These quotes are dialogue of utter genius.

Robin: When you think, Batman, with those 4 supercrooks hangin' around, it's amazing somebody hasn't already reported this place to the police!
Batman: It's a low neighborhood, full of rumpots. They're used to curious sights, which they attribute to alcoholic delusions.
Robin: Gosh, drink is sure a filthy thing, isn't it? I'd rather be dead than unable to trust my own eyes!
 
 
Robin: Holy marathon! I'm getting a stitch, Batman!
Batman: Let's hope that it's a stitch in time, Robin, that saves nine - The nine members of the United World Security Council. Come on.

Vice Admiral Fangschliester: - to some chap named "P. N. Guin".
Batman: P. N. Guin...
Robin: Penguin!
 
Batman: [reading a riddle] What has yellow skin and writes?
Robin: A ball-point banana!
Batman: [reads the second riddle] What people are always in a hurry?
Robin: Rushing people... Russians!
Batman: So this means...
Robin: Someone Russian is going to slip on a banana and break their neck!
Batman: Precisely, Robin!

The Wire is surely the best TV show ever broadcast in America.

The Wire has never won an emmy? [It] deserves the Nobel Prize for Literature!

The film is just simply awesome. No doubt about that. But I want to see the TV series - I never got a chance and if it's anything as good as the film, it'll be ace.

Oh the film was just awesome. I really want to see the tv series, I just hope it's as ace and hilarious as the film. Let's not forget when Batman is trying to dispense with danger.....

& who could forget the episode where he does the Batusi!

The 60s Batman show & movie are priceless, they kinda knew it wasn't to be taken seriously & have their tongues firmly in their cheeks. Having said that it does have some wacky camera angles that perfectly mirror the comic book frame/composition. Stick that in yer pipe & smoke it Ang Lee!!
The commentary track on the movie dvd is great fun as well.

You know I said I was pathertic earlier... Yeah, well I cried when I bought all100+ episodes off Ebay. Real cheap to. The only pirated thing I ever bought but thers no alternative so its okay.

Oh, and in the King Tut episode isn't it great when Batman goes mental and starts dancing?

And isn't it great that the Police force is completely incompitant.

Did they actually ever solve, or help solve, a case?

And how in the movie the leg grabing shark doesn't even rip his tights!!! ?hey're hardly lined with Kevlar now, are they?

I think you'll find citizen, that they're lined with special shark-repellant bat-fibres.

That's absolute class.  I've recently caught a few episodes of this and what's clearly apparent is just how in on the joke (in particular) Adam West and Burt Ward are. Everything's delivered in such an earnest manner and the dialogue is so self aware.

And Julie Newmar as Catwoman was - and I'm shamelessly quoting here - like an alien space creature from the planet super hot.

True story: Aunt Harriet was only added to the show because the producers were bothered  that Batman and Robin, two men living on their own at Stately Wayne Manor might make them look a bit gay. The special Bat-TV-Show-Analyzer told them this.

She appered in the comics first. After Wertams Seduction of the innocent book crippled the comic book industy and said Bats was a homosexual, the writers killed of alfie. And brought in Auntie H. He was brought back soon though.

    I saw on IMDB that the entire TV series was supposed to have been released last year for the 40th Anniversary of the 1st episode.

    Since then, Nothing!

    I would buy it anyway - all 120 episodes!
