I had to be the one to start this thread, on today, a day which means so much to me!
40 years ago, Wednesday, January 12th, 1966...7:30 PM! The moment that changed my life forever. Batman was on TV, and this 6 year old boy was enthralled that a real-live superhero was on TV, and in color, no less! And the villain! The Riddler, played to the hilt by Frank Gorshin!
That show started my life long love for the Caped Crusaders! No matter what people think of the show, it was a special, shining moment for me that has lasted almost a half-century!
Thank you Adam, Burt, Frank, Cesaer, Burgess, Yvonne...and especially Bob Kane, for creating the every-man's hero!
Batman is as alive and well now, as he has ever been...Long may his cape wave menacingly through the shadows of Gotham City.

I know I am late in posting in this thread, but the premiere episodes remain my all-time favourite! Yesterday (11 March) was also the first anniversary of my seeing the late Frank Gorshin perform in Good Night, Gracie! He was brilliant as The Riddler, and Jill St. John was also most memorable as Molly!
majorhoy: Where is everybody?
