Batman Theme Song

"Batman" by Neal Hefti

Batman Tidbits

"Same bat time. Same bat channel!" was the standard closing.

Holy Storytelling! You should already know the tale of the masked, caped Crusader Batman (Adam West). Unlike the other caped crimefighter Superman, Batman had no super powers. This is because he was really a mere mortal named Bruce Wayne. His ward Dick Grayson (Burt Ward) assisted in him, POW, in making the bad guys go SPLAT!

As Wayne was very rich he could buy really neat crimefighting toys. Like the Batmobile and other goodies kept in his hidden batcave. You could access this from inside "Stately" Wayne Manor (as Alfred called it) in Gotham City by pressing a button in the bust of Shakespeare in the den.

Now when Police Commisioner Gordon (Neil Hamilton) needs to reach Batman, he can use the red Bat Phone on his desk or more dramtically, he can flash the bat signal which is a bat logo flashed from the top of City Hall.

Holy Camp! But none of this was played seriously. Batman was pure fun, filmed in cartoon colors.
