Batman: Petition to Release the Classic Adam West Series!

BatmanThe Batman TV series became an instant hit when it debuted in 1966. Ever since that time, audiences of all ages have fallen in love with the campy villains, high adventure, and family-friendly heroics.

Unfortunately, because of copyright ownership issues, the series has not been released on DVD and it’s not looking like we’ll see it in stores for a long time to come.

Can’t we all just get along?



To: 20th Century Fox Television, Warner Bros., and DC Comics

We, the undersigned, have long enjoyed the classic Batman series starring Adam West and Burt Ward. We would love to own the series on DVD so that we can watch high-quality versions of this family-friendly show.

We ask that you please find a way to work out the legal and financial issues that are preventing the three seasons of Batman from being issued on DVD. There is a large audience who is ready to purchase these sets. By not releasing the series, everybody loses.

Thank you for your consideration.

    To whom it may concern, Please bring out 1966's Batman tv series out DVD and blue ray! We the fans would definitely love to buy each of the 3 seasons or as a complete box set. I know I personally would! I am also sure billions of others would like to add this series to their DVD library and would enjoy seeing it again or for the very first time! Think of us fans first and knowing how much joy and satisfaction it would bring all of us!

    To Warner Bros. and Fox: Stop holding this series hostage and release it on dvd and blu-ray already! If you were able to agree and put the 1966 film on dvd, then this should not be a problem. And while you're at it, release the Green Hornet on dvd as well.

    I pledge to never watch another Warner Brothers, Fox, or DC comics movie or television show, buy a cd or dvd owned by you, or even tune into your crappy TV channels until this series is released on dvd. You have had enough time to figure this out already, this is it.
  • chad gallCountry: USA2012-05-24 16:36:19

    I love and enjoy this version of batman. It is by far the best! I wish I owned it on DVD, so that I can share it with my friends and family.
  • Jerome TCountry: USA2012-03-16 11:11:26
    I LOVE the 1966 Batman, for sure the best. That show is a cult classic and funny as HELL! Gotta love Robin's weird cheesy "HOLY..." phrases. This is crazy this series is not available. My favorite villain is the Joker, Cool as HELL! RELEASE THIS ON BLU-RAY UNCUT, UNEDITED & WITH ALL ORIGINAL MUSICAL CUES INTACT!
  • Cory CasperCountry: USA2012-02-06 06:02:04
    PLEASE!!! Figure out some way to get this out there ASAP! This is too good of a series to be sitting dormant like this for so long! Hell, re-master it and put it on Blu-Ray, too while you're at it!

    It's a shame that bunch of red tape and greedy douche bags are keeping this amazing show from being released to its fans. Your business is FOR THE FANS. We pay for all your fancy living so suck it up and figure it out. And if you must think about it in terms of dollars and cents... you're all losing money. Coming to an agreement will be beneficial no matter what the terms.. You'll have more money you did yesterday no matter how you split it up. Isn't that enough, especially in this economy?

    It is 2012 and my 4 1/2 yr old cannot live without the classic Batman shows. We are able to tune in on Saturdays at 6pm (Central USA) if we are at home but there are times we cannot be at home at this time. Ever since my son saw the classic Batman movie, he has been in a cape and Batman mask ever since. He first saw the classic Batman movie when he was 3 yrs old. He has worn out 3 Batman capes and masks ever since (not to mention any sort of Batman utility belt). Please, please, please, release the classic Batman series on DVD. We would pay a heavy price to have this in our library - not to mention the happiness it would bring to our young son. And just to mention, we would buy this anytime in the next ten years as it seems that our young son does not seem to outgrow Batman. Sincerely, Theresa McCabe (mother of Brody - who wears his Batman get-up everywhere we go).
