1966 Batman Costume is a Blast from the Past

Updated on October 15, 2013

Holy Halloween, Batman! It's a Costume from the 1960s TV series

Do you remember the campy 1960s Batman TV series? If you remember the days when fight scenes were punctuated with comic-book-style exclamations of POW! and BAM!, Robin's most common phrase was "Holy .... Batman!" and each episode ended with the reminder to tune in again to the "same Bat channel" at the "same Bat time," then the newly released 1966 Batman costume might be the perfect outfit for Halloween this year. Forget about those tough-guy Dark Knight outfits and go retro with a classic Batman costume!

Batman Classic 1966 Series Grand Heritage Batman Adult CostumeCHECK PRICE

Newly released in 2013, this outfit is pure retro fun. The 1966 Batman costume is based on the TV series that ran for on ABC for three seasons, from 1966 to 1968 and starred Adam West and Burt Ward as the crime-fighting Dymamic Duo.

Unfortunately, this Halloween costume doesn't come with the super-cool "Batpoles" that magically used to convert Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson into Batman and Robin as they slid down the poles into the Batcave. So you'll need to get dressed the old fashioned way, one leg at a time. But you will be able to turn into the classic Caped Crusader in no time with this costume that includes headpiece with cowl, jumpsuit, briefs, belt, cape, gloves, and boot tops. In just minutes you'll be ready to do battle with The Riddler or Catwoman. This is an officially licensed Batman costume that will provide hours of fun.

The wildly colorful villains were an important part of the 1960s TV series. In each episode, Batman and Robin battled their foes, usually resulting in a fight sequence with words such as BIFF! and ZOK! splashed across the screen in comic-book style.

These costumes let you get into true villain mode as The Riddler or Catwoman, or you take the role of one of Batman's sidekicks as Robin or Batgirl.

      Batman would be a great choice for a costume. My grandkids have other choices already for this year.

      Loved the show as a kid. Remember I wanted to be like Batgirl. Didn't realize how suggestive the women's costumes were at the time.

      Thought it was really Adam West in the intro picture. They've done a good job in finding people (or photo shopping) them to look like the characters.
