!960’s Batman Series – All the Window Cameos [VIDEO]
I’ve been watching a lot of old TV shows on my iPad lately…Hulu is my new addiction. in the last couple of weeks, I’ve gone though seasons of Hogan’s Heros, Kung Fu, The Midnight Special…and one of my favorites, Batman.
Nothing like the recent Dark Knight Batman – Adam West, Burt Ward and the rotating cast of villians were more camp than action. One of the highlights of the show to me are when Batman & Robin are ‘climbing’ a wall, and a star of the era shows up at an open window.
Thanks to someone named Loomyaire, you don’t have to watch the entire series to see all fourteen of the “window cameos” from the series. Included in the video are appearances by (in order) Jerry Lewis, Dick Clark, Green Hornet (Van Williams) and Kato (Bruce Lee), Sammy Davis Jr., Jose Jimenez (Bill Dana), Howard Duff as Detective Sam Stone on “Felony Squad,” Colonel Klink (Werner Klemperer), Lurch (Ted Cassidy), Don Ho, Andy Devine as Santa Claus, Art Linkletter, Edward G. Robinson, Suzy Knickerbocker and…Holy Hokey Cameo, Batman…it’s the Carpet King (real name unknown)!
