AW, YEAH!

We're finally getting the campiness that was Adam West and Burt Ward. No word yet on if it's gonna be DVD, Blu-Ray or Digital release yet.

Licensing problems, my boy!

You see, the 1966 Batman series was created by 20th Century Fox and ABC, long before Warner Bros. bought DC Comics. Thus, while Warner Bros. had the rights to the bat and the bird, Fox and ABC had the series. They could syndicate the hell out of them, but they couldn't put them on DVD.

Until now.

Yep. Licensing and merchandising of Batman '66 has been a legendary nightmare.

Interesting that it apparently did not affect Batman: The Movie the one movie the 1966 crew made. Amazon.com indicates that one was released on DVD in 2008.

And here I was hoping that it would just quietly disappear. Damn.
If something is not broken, don't fix it, if it is broken, don't leave it.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
