Batman

Batman is a 1960s American television series. Based on the comic book character Batman, it aired on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) for 2½ seasons from January 12, 1966 to March 14, 1968. Because the series had two weekly installments for most of its tenure, it contained the same number of episodes as a four and a half year or even a five year series.

    Batman was not the first, or only, choice of character when producers decided to do a TV series based on a comic book or strip. Producers surveyed the public about which character they'd like to see a TV series based on, and other options included Superman, Dick Tracy, The Green Hornet, The Phantom, and Little Orphan Annie. Batman finished highest on the list among characters whose rights were available and obtainable at the time.

    Debuted as part of ABC's "Second Season" promotional campaign for four new series that replaced recently canceled ones. However, it was the only one of the four to be renewed for another season. The other three series were "The Double Life of Henry Phyfe" (1966), Blue Light and The Baron (UK) (1966) (a British import whose first season was carried over into 1967). All four series were presented in color. The "in color" aspect of this campaign resulted in no new ABC series being broadcast in black and white from January 1966 on. (Although any series that were already in black and white before 1966 continued until September.)
