Batman 1960 (Adam West)
Batman is a 1960s American television series, based on the DC comic book character of the same name. The typical story began with a villain (often one of a short list of recurring super-criminals) committing a crime, such as stealing a fabulous gem or taking over Gotham City. This was followed by a scene inside Police Commissioner Gordon's office where he and Chief O'Hara would deduce exactly which villain they were dealing with. Gordon would press a button on the Batphone, a bright red telephone located on a pedestal in his office. The scene then cut to stately Wayne Manor where Alfred the butler would answer an identical Batphone beeping loudly on the desk in Bruce Wayne's study. Upon learning which criminal he would face this time, Bruce would push a button concealed within a bust of Shakespeare that stood on his desk causing a bookcase to slide back and revealing two poles. "To the Batpoles!" Wayne would exclaim, at which he and Grayson would slide down to the Batcave, activating a mechanism on the way that dressed them in their costumes. Starring: Adam West as Bruce Wayne/Batman; Burt Ward as Dick Grayson/Robin; Neil Hamilton as Commissioner James Worthington Gordon; Stafford Repp as Chief Miles O'Hara; and Madge Blake as Aunt Harriet Cooper, Dick Grayson's maternal aunt.
