I guess you can file this post under "U" for useless. It won't have any social relevance, provide any spiritual insight, or make you reexamine your life or the world you live in. It's just funny as hell.
I was watching the 1966 Batman movie on TV a few nights ago. Though I've seen it a hundred times, it doesn't get any less hilarious. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that this superhero flick came out before computer graphics allowed us to see the X-men's cool powers, Spiderman's ability to swing from New York high rises, or Johnny Storm and the Silver Surfer to duking it out in mid air. Or perhaps it had something to do with the producers growing up in the age of Howdy Doody. I don't know for sure. But whatever the case; this movie is so ridiculously cheesy, I can't help but to laugh uncontrollably each time I watch it.
Here for instance, our intrepid hero is fighting off a shark rigged with explosives. Thank God for shark repellant Batspray:
Who could ever forget how Batman and his "devishly clever" sidekick Robin were able to brilliantly solve riddles:
It's always good to know that if you need to get rid of an Acme-styled bomb without hurting unsuspecting citizens, you can always rely on good ole Batman:
And of course, what episode would be complete without the fight scenes? Splat! Wham! Biff! Zock!
You know, maybe I was wrong about one thing: the 1960's version of Batman definitely caused me to reexamine my life. LOL!
