It was on this day in 1966 ABC gave us "Holy Hot Dog Batman"...Batman, the TV series with all it's 60's, ..ahem...style debuted on January 12, 1966. Here's the first episode, thanks to You Tube.

On a side note, I can remember as a youngster having my dad call Channel 41 in Battle Creek to complain when they took Batman reruns off the afternoon schedule around 1974 or so...good times, good times!
