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.

    After ABC canceled the series, the producers waited to see if anyone else would pick it up, then bulldozed the Batcave set when it appeared nobody would. Two weeks later, NBC offered to pick it up, unaware that the set had already been dismantled; unwilling to invest in the high cost of rebuilding the entire set, NBC ultimately declined to acquire the series.

    Three major villains from the comic book were never used in the television show: Poison Ivy, Scarecrow, and Two-Face, although the latter was almost used. He was considered for the show before its cancellation. The theme of the character was to be a TV commentator who has a TV tube blow up in his face (as the character's original origin - Gotham D.A. Harvey Dent has a vial of acid hurled at his face in court by volatile mob boss Salvatore 'The Boss' Maroni during his trial - would have been too gruesome for television at the time). Ultimately, the character did not appear on the series. Eventually, all of them would see live-action incarnations: Ivy in Batman & Robin; Scarecrow in Batman Begins; and Two-Face in Batman Forever and The Dark Knight.
