I've been reading here and there that Warner Brothers will release the 1978 Batman cartoon (starring Adam West and Burt Ward) on DVD this summer, along with the 1966 Bud Collyer "New Adventures of Superman." Both of these shows were produced by Filmation, which had been releasing more and more of their old shows on DVD in the last couple of years.

I can't wait to see this on DVD. Now, if they would only release their "Tarzan" series on DVD, my life would be complete!

I'll definitely pick it up.. but I'm surprised there's no word on the late 60's animated Batman stuff.. hopefully we'll eventually see that, too..

They've got about an hour's worth of the 1969 cartoons on VHS, don't you? They came out in 1985 or 1986, I believe, and also had Superman, Superboy, and Aquaman (each of the 4 had headlined a half-hour on CBS on Saturday mornings). \:\)

Here's a link on Amazon:

I've got both Superman and Batman! It used to drive me crazy when I was younger, because I'd always see them teamed up (with Robin) in World's Finest, but they didn't in the cartoons or live-action!

Heh. Before I knew George Reeves had died, I always wanted his Superman to team up with Adam West's Batman and Burt Ward's Robin! \:\)

How insanely cool would that have been!?!?!? (If they'd toned down the Bat-camp just a little!)

I kind of wonder how many OTHER men my age (mid-40's) had the exact same day-dream 40 years ago? LOL

Lex Luthor and Joker versus Superman, Batman, and Robin in a 3-parter, like the other villian team-ups on the show! \:\)

They really only made about two good animation shows in all, and their Batman series was certainly not one of them.

You sound like the first time you ever saw them was after you'd turned 25. You should've seen 'em as a child.

Even as a nine year old watching Tarzan, I was sort of wondering why the aliens who appeared a time or two were all named after foreign currency; Drachma and Lira being the two most obvious.
