But this one did not take it self quite as seri­ously as the ver­sion of Super­man in the 1950’s.

The show spawned a movie, pro­duced as they shot the show, and appeaing in the­aters between the fisrt and sec­ond sea­sons. The movie had no ani­mated open­ing title. The series ran for 120 episodes and end­ing in 1968 with a series of sin­gle episode shows.

Though type-cast by the show, both its stars would return tpo play the caped cru­saders again in Fil­ma­tions’ The New Adven­tures of Bat­man in 1977.
