Holy Birthday Batman! We Celebrate Adam West's 88th Birthday With Some Of Our Favorite Batman Moments

When you say Batman, a lot of people think Christain Bale,  Michael Keaton or now Ben Affleck. For me, it has always been and will always be Adam West. The campy 1966 series was a staple in my home, watching all the reruns on TV with pure delight. It was just within the last few years that the series was released onto DVD so we could return to Gotham and enjoy the completely wonderful and absolutely goofy show that made Adam West the star he is. The show and movie they made were filled with silly innuendos, goofy filming tricks and many guest stars.

Here are a just a few of our favorite moments of Adam West portraying his most well known character to help celebrate the actors 88th birthday this month.

That time Batman got served with a lawsuit because he didn't figure out the riddle.

Maybe if you had figured out that riddle you wouldn't need to worry about those legal fees Batman.

That time Batman was a better dancer than you.

If he didn't want to attract attention maybe he shouldn't go into a bar dressed like a giant bat. Also, Batman you should probably not accept drinks from people who are obviously in cahoots with your villains.

That time Batman met every famous person while climbing their windows.

The best part was that you could see the strings holding their capes up.

That time Batman flirted with words like anti-bat-sonic-device

It seemed like all the ladies loved Batman, but he always had a special place in his heart for Catwoman.

       Giphy    

That time Batman carried a letter opener in his utility belt and no one mentions it.


How would you solve riddles on the go if you didn't have a letter opener handy!

That time Batman was attacked by a shark


Luckily Batman's helicopter was equipped with shark repellent otherwise who knows what would have happened! Good thing he didn't rip his tights on that sharks teeth. Did you know that sharks make explosion sounds when they land in water?

That time Batman was the only one that Gotham trusted to fight crime.

Alfred should have worked on his whisper voice though. You would have thought after all that time they would have come up with a code name so they wouldn't have to say "Bat-Phone" in front of Mrs. Cooper.

That time Batman taught Robin all about motorist safety.

Wearing your seat belt is very important Robin, listen to Batman.

That time Batman saves Robin with good dental hygiene.

Batman is a big advocate for brushing twice a day!

That time Batman laughed at his own puns... sort of.


That time Batman wore swim trunks.

Do you think he carried those in his utility belt?

That time Batman and Robin were still fighting crime decades later.

In a made for TV movie that I highly recommend to any Batman fan, Adam West, Burt Ward and a few villains all return in a fun look back at the making of the original series and movie. They give you some behind the scenes details through a ridiculous adventure that is hilarious.

And of course, that time Batman ran around with a bomb.

       Giphy    

The worlds slowest to explode bomb ever. Good guy though, won't even throw it in the water with the ducks!

The True Story Behind "The Sound of Music" Is Even Better Than Whiskers On Kittens

When Julie Andrews brought the sound of music down from the mountains and into our hearts, she brought with it a love for the real-life von Trapp family, who the story was based on. The movie follows the autobiography of the real Maria von Trapp, who was a nun that became a part of an Austrian family before the Nazi occupation in World War II. The film accurately portrays a lot about their lives and demeanor, but in Maria's published memoirs (that the film was based on) it is easy to see how much becomes simple Hollywood figment. Here are
