The classic Batman series still isn’t available on DVD so fans have had to be satisfied with the 1966 feature film. Now, it’s possible to purchase another product that features Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin, as well as Frank Gorshin as The Riddler.
Back in 1978, Hanna-Barbera produced a pair of live-action comedy specials called Legends Of The Super Heroes. In “The Challenge,” the dynamic duo, Captain Marvel, Green Lantern, The Flash, Hawkman, Black Canary, and The Huntress must work to stop a band of villains from destroying the world. In the second special, the heroes are the target of a good-natured roast that’s hosted by Ed McMahon.
This is the first time that these specials have been released on DVD and the quality is quite good for projects that were video-taped. The Warner Bros. Archives DVD also contains several minutes of unused footage from both specials.
