Holy Obsessive Batman


I would like to believe
that there exists
a man consumed
by an obsession

to exact a price from that which took
his humanity

A lost soul amongst shadows.
A bane to all that is evil. 
  
 
   
Playing with Dolls can be a heck of a good time! 
If you're an sick-o person like Robin

Batman had convenient labels on absolutely everything when he was on television between 1966 and 1968.

Batman for President! 
 Alrighty then, Lets Get Political  
  
 

 I shall, at the twilight, or any other time that I am summoned, become the Man Who Flies with Bats

 


  


 
  
  
In the guy equivalent of Barbara Eden having to "hide her navel" on I Dream of Jeannie, there was a huge controversy about both Adam West's and Burt Ward's "bulge in the crotch". Several different methods of crotch "inhibition" were used on West and Ward during the series' run to fend off complaints from complaining conservative and religious organizations. A cup is also a good explanation for why the shorts are so smooth.

The shorts are probably concealing a bit of equipment… Batman sees more beatings in a month than a football quarterback will experience in their professional careers.   

I should hope that those shorts are obscuring a cup of the latest space age polymers.
 
 
Batman and Robin getting down
 


Since its arrival in 1966, the iconic Batmobile has had many incarnations with each decade bringing its own take on this iconic supercar. In the 1930s and early 40s Batman's car barely featured in the comic strips. When it was eventually drawn, it was just a bulk standard red convertible with elongated wings.

In fact, it was not until the 1966 TV series that the first real Batmobile appeared. The Batmobile has evolved and been bought up to date many times to appeal to each new generation.

Looks like the Bat was a little OCD when it came to labeling things in the batcave!

Great photos. I remember watching so 1940s Batman shorts on Youtube. Very lame. Can't wait for the new movie.
