In his 1994 book Back to the Batcave,
Adam West tells… some. Yes, there are
recollections of funny things that happened on the set of
Batman, a discussion of the development of how the
character Batman would be played on the ’66 show, and answers to
some lingering questions that have come up on this podcast. On the
other hand, his love life recollections tend to be shrouded in
anonymity, and mentions of Burt Ward are
surprisingly few and neutral. Also, a disturbing number of his
assertions are provably false!
Having read Batcave, Tim and Paul try to clean up the record, parse West's negative reaction to Batman being referred to as “camp”, and consider the question: What if Batman had used a laugh track?
PLUS: The Ventures' version of the Batman theme!
