Here’s an interview bit with Burt Ward as Robin, where we can see the beginnings of the creepy evil influence of the New New DC, in which everything has to be dark and seedy. As we’ve previously observed, it was the lack of Hostess sponsorship that screwed up everything.
Update: Sadly, the vid’s been taken down. Somebody let me know if it comes back–it’s classic.
And as a bonus, after the break is a great selling reel, promoting Batman as well as the Green Hornet. If NeedCoffeeTV was a reality, I would definitely sign us up for both shows.
