56 years ago – July 1966 – “Batman” was released in cinemas, starring Adam West as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Burt Ward as Robin/Dick Grayson.

          “Some days, you just can’t get rid of a bomb!”

“Holy Return Of The Caped Crusaders, Batman!”

“Well old chum, it looks like it’s time for a comeback”                                                                                                                                                         “Holy triumphant return Batman!”

The Batman of the 1960’s wasn’t a Dark Knight, he wasn’t foreboding or scary, and seemed to have gotten over, fairly easily, the murder of his parents that had haunted him and made him a creature of the night… in fact the Batman of the sixties wasn’t even a denizen of the dark, preferring to run around his native Gotham, during daylight, in tights!

Yes indeedy Batfans, 60’s Batman and today’s modern version are literally day and night, but both are still Superheroes of the highest echelon and downright entertaining, whether it’s the Caped Crusader holding aloft a comical round bomb whilst darting around avoiding nuns and ducklings (!?) or the Dark Knight stalking his prey from the shadows and vigorously snapping limbs…
