    Does anyone know if all 3 seasons of the 1960s Batman TV show with Adam West and Burt Ward will ever be released on DVD?

    I know Fox wants to do it, but rights are hell

    Batman is now owned by Warner, who of course will want much dinero. I think a lo of it hinges on how well the movie did

    According to the imdb, the movie got a 5.7/9 Nielsen. So what's the deal with rights? Fox owns the show and WB owns Batman?

    Jeff is right....

    Fox desperately wants to put the 60s BATMAN
    out on DVD. In fact, that was one of their
    inital choices of TV product release if I
    remember correctly.

    There are rights issues holding that release up.

    If Fox could have gotten this out already you
    better believe they would have.

    Eric, that isn't good. Here's the link to the IMDB story. Theyy refer to it as "dismal."

    Well, I meant the 60s theatrical movie that was released on DVD last year [​IMG]

    But I'm sure they were watching the numbers on Return to the Batcave (which if you're reading Fox is already on Jeff's DVD list no matter how much he hates the 60s show, the RTTB was fantastic)

    I hope RTTB means nothing. After all, nothing is like the old 60's Batman!

    Let's get it out Fox!! Good news from Ron, at least as far as intentions and hopes go.

    so what do you think we will see first-
    the first season of Batman,
    or the second season of Mary Tyler Moore?

    John, I know. I was responding to Eric, who was responding to my comments about the ratings.

    Hopefully the complete run of 120 episodes will be available on DVD at some point. I taped them back in the eighties and they are chopped up from sindication plus the visual quality is not great.

    I'd like to get the 60s Spider-Man cartoons on DVD as well.
