In the 60’s, Batman was a popular television series that had a sitcom vibe mixed with some campy humor. Adam West played the caped crusader and the villains were played by many other big stars. Here are some facts that even the biggest fan will be surprised to learn.
Where It All Started
The series was originally meant to be a cool crime series similar to ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ However when ABC executives read the original Batman comics they realized the show had to have that campy humor too.
A Stylish Ride
One of the most iconic elements of the show was the Batmobile. The original car that was used was a Lincoln Futura which was modified to look the part. The original Batmobile was later auctioned for $4.2 million in 2013.
