|"It is TRULY AMAZING, Old Chum!"|
The Adam West Scrapbook, hardcover and filled with great photos from the Batman '66 era. Including one each of West with William Shatner... and John Wayne!
|"HOLY HIGH-DEF! We look MUCH better than this, on Blu-ray!"|
On the first day, I skipped around the vast BATMAN ’66 video-verse with gleeful abandon! It went something like this:
|"Buckle-up! You're in for quite the ride!"|
Skipped to the first appearance of my favorite TV-Bat-Villain, the great Victor Buono as King Tut. “The Curse of Tut” / “The Pharaoh’s in a Rut”.
And, “The Joker’s Flying Saucer”, the last appearance of Caesar Romero’s Joker!
|"Is it really THE END for me? Unthinkable!"|
|I hate to "RIP" anything about this set, but...|
If there’s one “CON” about the set, it’s something that may unfortunately be typical of Warner Home Video’s Blu-ray product – specifically such product that contains “episodes or installments” that should play individually off of a menu. It’s certainly true of the three Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Blu-ray sets.
SECOND DAY UPDATE: Another “minor quibble”, but particularly noticeable to someone like me, is that, in the first two seasons at the end of “Part Two” of every episode, there was a “Next Week's Villain” intro. It would just be a STILL of the villain that would hold on the screen for as long as it took William Dozier to say: “Next Week: Batman vs. The Penguin!” These bits have always been cut from syndication prints.
Alas, they are also missing from these otherwise perfect episodes. However the “Next Week's Villain” intro for Zelda the Great, at the end of the first Mister Freeze appearance, “Instant Freeze” / “Rats Like Cheese” seems to have been accidentally left on, to the great pleasure of authenticity enthusiasts everywhere!
