Farewell, Caped Crusader

adamwest-3It’s a shame to hear of Adam West’s passing. A fine comic actor, but most of all the man who gave Batman a sense of humour in the legendary TV series. Certainly, the quips, the puns and the sheer absurdity of it all made the franchise accessible to me as a young boy, providing some light relief from the gloomy and scary Tim Burton films of the day.

The series doubtless threw up many classic moments – and dance routines – there’s the bomb, but for me it’s always this particular scene that springs to mind first. Hilarious. You wouldn’t catch Bale or Affleck doing this…


  1. How camp is that clip! The shorts alone are worth the price of admission, as they say. I can’t think of the Batdance without smiling. Farewell, caped crusader indeed.

      Ha, absolutely! I can’t stop smiling at this show – it was just pure fun. West certainly knew what he was doing!

      Thanks, Phil. Yes, I’ve seen no end of tributes paid across the net; it’s clear he had quite an impact. To so many, I’m sure he’ll always be the Batman!
