Batmobile website

With a hat tip to Bish's Beat, here's a fun website devoted to the 1966 Batmobile from the TV show.

My story with the Batmobile is much like the website's author. I thoroughly dug that car and had my own Hot Wheels version sometime in the 1970s. At a car show once, I actually got to see it. A young boy's wish fulfilled.

Cut to this year: in a recent episode of the animated Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Robin was the partner. In the intro scene, it was a flashback of Robin when he was the Boy Wonder. In stylized tones, they paid homage to the 1960s TV show as B&R slid down the pole, jumped in the Batmobile, fastened their seat belts, and rocketed out of the cave. Brilliant!


  1. I was totally hooked on the Batman sitcom. Totally.

  2. And to think: it's not on the air that I know of. I'd be watching those shows everyday if I could. Now, I just watch the animated Brave and the Bold.
