The 1960s Batman TV series a camp classic and delightful take on the famous character.  Some like him dark and brooding, but there’s no denying the fun of Adam West’s performance as the caped crusader, the “WHAM!” and “POW” title cards, and the unforgettable theme song just to name a few.  However, aside from the 1966 movie, the series has been unavailable on home release due to legal entanglements regarding ownership.  Thankfully, it looks like that obstacle has finally been overcome because the series is finally getting an official release.  Conan O’Brien made the announcement on his Twitter feed.  There are currently no other details other than Warner Bros. will release all 120 episodes together in a complete series box set.

Hit the jump to check out Conan’s tweet, which includes a photo of him standing next to the classic Batmobile.  And be sure to check back with us as we get more details on this set.  Same Bat-time.  Same Bat-channel.

    Have to wonder, are we going to get complete episodes, or will they be a hatchet job (like what they had to do to the music in WKRP in order to put it on video)?

      What would need to have been cut from the Batman series in order to comply with licensing and rights issues?

      • Zoidbert

        Numerous guest stars & cameos, and not meaning the principal players. Plus there’s all sorts of rights holders issues. The Digital Bits has been tracking this for years; hit their site and take a look for more info; ditto re/TVShowsonDVD.com: http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/shows/Batman/841

    It’s crazy that it’s taken this long and they haven’t figured it out.

    Will we get audio commentary from Adam West and other cast members on some of the episodes? Fingers crossed!
