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.
