The popular 60s-era Batman television show starring Adam West and Burt Ward as the Dynamic Duo is finally getting a home entertainment release.
The news came via an unusual, but appropriate, source. Longtime comic book fan and TV personality Conan O’Brien.
The date of release is as yet unknown, but with Batman more popular than ever, the Batman ’66 comic book in stores and Batman celebrating his 75th year as a pop culture icon this year, the timing couldn’t be better.

What a fabulous series that was. I still have some episodes locked away in their Betamax plastic boxes, somewhere.
By the way, we should start the Julie Newmar Appreciation Society !

Thanks for posting this Doc.
I have all the episodes on DVD in my old Batman lunch box that my Mom bought for me when I started first grade.
I also have the original TV Guide that came out with Adam West on the Cover in there too.
It's too full to put in the thermos.
I was always a big fan of this series and it will be great to have all the episodes uncut and in better picture quality.
I recorded them off TV with my DVD-R and sometimes they chopped some of the scenes out to make room for more commercials.

Batman TV Series DVD Set To Include New Bonus Material From Adam West & Burt Ward
By: Joe Comicbook on April 7, 2014
Earlier this year, it was announced that the Batman TV series, which ran from 1966 to 1968 on ABC, would be released later this year on DVD. In the initial announcement, not many details were revealed beyond that the home video release would include the entire series.
In an appearance at the Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con, Batman TV stars Adam West and Burt Ward revealed some additional details about the Batman TV series home video release, along with a release date for the collection.
“Finally, after an innumerable number of years, our series is going to be coming out, all 120 episodes,” said Ward. “I understand it’s right at the end of November this year in time for Christmas.”
Ward added, “I know this last week, both Adam and I at separate times, we went in and we filmed some additional bonus material for Warner Bros. that’s going to be included with the programs. And I also understand that they’ve really done a tremendous job digitally remastering our series so that it’s really going to be just absolutely gorgeous on DVD. So I think you can look forward to a very, very high class product.”
“Warner Bros. had a very fine director/producer they hired,” said West. “And he asked us the most profound questions. And Burt agrees that he asked us things that people have never asked before. And it was tough to answer, but I think we were both very honest and straightforward and told him what he wanted to know.”
“And as a result you folks with the new DVD can see us naked,” joked West.
West added, “We answer questions and tell you things that we’ve never said before. They were so tricky.”
