Batman Anniversary

I loved, loved, loved Batman as a kid. I loved the colors, the evil villains, the batmobile, and the Boom-Pow-Oof fight scenes. Even as a very young boy I got the deadpan jokes and the ridiculousness. I literally saw every single episode.

I was just discussing this the other night with my boys who were wondering why I wasn't into superhero movies. I used to be. I think the turning point for me was when they lost that twinkle in the eye. When the Dark Knight actually got dark. I know it was more in line with the comic books, but I was never a comic book guy. I was a comedy guy...even as a very young boy.

Anyway, happy anniversary to the original Batman television show, which debuted on this day in 1966.
