Sad news came through yesterday, Adam West the actor famous for playing Batman in the 1960’s ABC T.V. series has passed away at the age of 88.
Yes, I know that the character has been portrayed by Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and others, but you can keep them.
To me Adam West was and always will be Batman, my Batman.
As a youngster I would eagerly await each episode as the “Caped Crusader” battled against recurring villains such as “The Joker,” “ The Riddler,” and “The Penguin.”
Batman usually got captured by his enemies, but always escaped just in the nick of time to save the day and see that justice prevailed!
In the imagination of small boys our bicycles were the sleek, cool, Batmobile and a piece of old sheet was our cape….we were Batman too!
So farewell Adam West, Batman forever, thanks for the good times and memories.
I’ll catch you again one day and as the programme always used to end:
“Same Bat-Time, Same Bat-Channel.”
Spot on Dookes, part of our childhood now gone but never forgotten.

Ditto, Dookes, and, may I add,WHAM! POW! ZOOM! BANG!
Definitely the Batman who’s stayed with me – the others don’t reach the tip of his cape.
