Burt started out by talking about the legacy of Batman and Robin in the 50 years since he and Adam West performed those characters on the original tv series saying “what we did was terrific family entertainment…since our show you’ve had all the tremendous Batman movies that have come out.” As for what he did after the Batman series ended Burt said “well what I have done besides doing 40 features for television and other movies, I’ve toured the country making personal appearances.”
Burt also talked about why the original Batman series only lasted three seasons saying “we were making shows twice a week and on every episode the studio was losing about $320,000 an episode…they felt like they had made enough episodes to syndicate it without making new episodes.”MORE NEWS: Nominate A Principal For The Heart Of The School Awards
