General Information

This 1966 television series ran for two and a half seasons. Despite the short run, it is one of the most well-known of all TV shows. During Season One it was hugely popular. By Season Three, when they added Batgirl, ratings were dwindling.

The show starred Adam West as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Burt Ward as Dick Grayson/Robin. According to Ward, the creators of the series wanted Dick Grayson to be the all-American boy. Naive and wholesome, with plenty of energy. Interestingly enough, the screen test for West and Ward reveals a far more serious tone to the one used in the show. You can view this screen test, along with a screen test for the two other actors who auditioned for the role, at the bottom of this page.

The show seemed to find the happy medium... a comedy for adults and a hero flick for youngsters. It still has a huge fan following.

In the first and second season, each story comprised two half hour episodes, the first episode in each pair ending in a cliff hanger. During the third season there were huge cutbacks and episodes were only one part.
