The Adam West Batman TV show from the 60s is perfect. It’s action-packed for the kids and hilarious for adults. This story is a testament to the popularity of the world’s greatest detective: decades after it finished going to air, the show’s props are still going for millions.
Just this last weekend, the Batmobile used in the 1960’s Batman TV show sold at auction for $US4.2 million. Holy profit, Batman!
The Batmobile was a modified version of the 1955 Lincoln Futura concept, and in the show it was fitted with all sorts of baddie-bashing kit like smokescreens and oil slicks. [HuffPo]
