Fans await “Batman” release on DVD!

My all-time favorite and the most-wanted unreleased-on-DVD television show is the 1966 Batman TV Series, and we, the old-school fans of the campy 60s television show are painstakingly waiting for the corporate greed of Fox, DC Comics, Warner Bros., and the Dozier estate to get on with the negotiations already, for crying out loud! Tick-Tock… I want to relive my fond childhood memories, so what’s taking so long?

Adam West: “Lookwell” was sadly never made, but “Batman,” of course was on the air for 120 glorious episodes. Yet, because it’s never been released on DVD, legions of fans, young and old, haven’t been able to enjoy it, some for the first time and some to relive those great memories. Do you have any idea when we might see “Batman” come out on DVD?

I guess FOX and Warner Bros. have been trying to sift that one out. I think it’s simply a matter of dividing up the pie. I’ve heard that they’re very close to an agreement and they’ll be bringing it out. In the meantime, because they haven’t and people have been screaming for it, I did “Adam West Naked.”

But of course, you’re right. People want “Batman” released on DVD and I think it will happen. “Batman: The Movie” is available and it’s always sold really well. But it seems most people have seen that.

ETA: I’d like to pay tribute to Actor Michael Gough who played Bruce Wayne’s Butler: Alfred Pennyworth, in the four Batman movies. He passed away on March 18th, 2011 at the age of 94. R.I.P. Alfred.
