    Newmar missed out on meeting many of the greats. If she'd done the movie she could have teamed with Burgess Meredith, Cesar Romero, and Frank Gorshin.

    ^According to West in his autobiography, Cliff Robertson was one of the guest villain actors who had a blast on the show.

    Batman 66 has long solidified itself as one of my favorite versions of the character and his world.

    I really like the way they did the villain,particulary Burguess meredith withe pinguin (it's how I see the character ), I feel like a lot of those 66 villain should be use more often like egghead or king tut

    been starting to watch episodes of this with my 5 year old.
    it's great batman intro 101 for children.

    i watch the show as an over-the-top action comedy.
    my son watches it as a serious superhero show.

    and as a batman fan, it's also a time-capsule to see how previous generations viewed the character and his world.
    the show works as a fun adaption of the silver age batman.

    so many different layers to enjoying batman '66.

    It turns out Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson were really Captain America and Bucky.

    Instead of asking about Supergirl, Robin should asked about "Wondergirl".
