This scene from the 1960s Batman may be the perfect TV moment

In the 1960s television series, Batman was a far less dark character and a lot more camp, with the much-missed Adam West in the title role, assisted by Burt Ward as his trusty sidekick, Robin – both of them in costumes made of fabric, not rubber muscles. It was very much a beautifully crafted piece of theatre, with wonderfully hammy performances, hilariously terrible puns and iconic music.

Twitter user, YUXLOA, shared a clip from the series in which Bruce Wayne has to do some quick thinking, and Adam West has to do some sharp acting – which he did. Enjoy.


The internet has gone wild for this blast from the past.

Someone had one criticism.

That would have *looks to camera* sealed the deal.
