Na Na Na Na Na Batman! Adam West donned cape and cowl in this 60s camp take on Batman.

With his Boy Wonder in tow, the dynamic duo face off against a host of Batman’s legendary enemies including The Joker, Penguin, and Catwoman. Naturally, they were just as camp as everything else in the show but were all entertaining.

If you’ve never seen the 60s Batman, Imagine watching an even more comedic version of the George Clooney movie *shudders*, and you’ll have some idea o what the show was like. The only thing was it managed to get away with being the way it was thanks to its time. Joel Schumacher, unfortunately for him, did not manage to get away with it.

The fight scenes were hilarious and included captions that would pop up on screen like ‘POW!’ or ‘BANG!’, and would make even Christian Bale’s Batman laugh.

At the end of the day, it’s all part of the Batman legacy, and is just as memorable as any other version.
