Hi Bob!Bob Furmanek said:I haven't even seen what you are talking about but I can tell you this: it's a joke.
I've known him since the mid-1980's. Adam has a big heart and a very dry sense of humor.
What? You mean it wasn’t on the same bat time and the same bat channel?I wonder how much that show has made in syndication over the years - I know it hopped around a bunch in terms of what time and channel it was on when I was a kid in the 1980s, but I was always on the look for it, and it never disappeared for long.
Thank you very much Bob, for kindly sharing the above BATMAN promo, and for the reminder of today being the 50th anniversary of the final episode's original airing! My viewing of the series finale served as a reminder of the top notch visual presentation of this set. To think that not many years ago, this series was considered a hopeless cause for ever seeing legitimate release!The final episode aired tonight: March 14, 1968
The show was losing money big-time by the third season and despite the rumors, there was never any consideration to do a 4th year. NBC was never interested in picking up the show.
Dozier had been losing money and was hot to get Batman into syndication ASAP because that's where it would finally turn a profit.
Here's an industry trade ad offering the 120 episodes from February 12, 1968.
