Adam West R.I.P.

Gutted!
My favourite Batman actor has sadly passed away. I loved the tongue in cheek sixties tv show, and of course the A&BC gum cards that featured the caped crusader. Younger collectors will remember him most as the voice of the mayor in Family Guy. Sad day........

We used to love Batman when I was a boy.  It was a bit difficult to take it seriously.  Nowadays they claim it was a comedy without the canned laughter which explains a lot.  To the Batheaven, POW! BAM! ZONK!

Must see TV on Sunday afternoon in the 60's

Adam West was superb as Batman.

Another boyhood hero gone  :'(

Had to look-up Kim Kahana, Baz!
Yes, I remember The Banana Splits, and also the cry "Uh oh, Chongo!" but wouldn't have associated it with him.
