Actor Conan O'Brien has tweeted some very exciting news today. According to the popular television host, Warner Brothers Home Entertainment is getting ready to release Batman '66 Complete TV Series in 2014.
There is no confirmation yet whether the series is coming to Blu-ray, or a preliminary release date to share with the community, but we assume that when the series finally arrives on the home video market it will be available on Blu-ray and DVD.
I would love for Smallville to be finished up on Blu-ray. Don't know if it'll happen. But I'm still very excited, as I imagine most people are, for this show to be FINALLY debuting on home video officially, and in good quality. Many generations haven't even seen this show. This is history-making man. It's huge. Probably the release of the year.
Wait, the ENTIRE series run on blu-ray? All 3 seasons, & Hopefully, the 1966 TV Movie? Sign me up!!
"It aired on the ABC network for three seasons from January 12, 1966 to March 14, 1968. The show was aired twice weekly for its first two seasons and weekly for the third, with a total of 120 episodes produced during its run"
Lol - as a couple people noted above, it seems as this is sort of "Old News":
"In January 2014, Conan O'Brien posted on his Twitter account, and later confirmed by Warner Bros., that Warner Bros. would release an official DVD box set of the complete series sometime in 2014. ----- On April 10, 2014 the website tvshowsondvd.com quoted Burt Ward in saying that Warner Bros. would release the complete series in late November 2014 in time for the Holiday season, and that he and Adam West were doing special features for the release."
Agree with you there Johnny boy! "Julie Newmar" and Diana Rigg were so hot; especially in leathers!! Just wish Diana Rigg would come out on high definition! Studio Canal have the rights and they are stuffing around... it's about time they released the Avengers TV series on Blu-ray too! It was shot on 35mm film and would look fantastic!
Will buy it only if available on BR and yes Julie Newmar did looks. I met Julie about 8 months ago in LA and she still looks great (and she's now 80). It was great fun to meet her. She's still a Pussycat - MEaoow.
bajor27 Yvonne Craig was very beautiful-sexy, and I did try to love her, but she wasn't evil! Finger lakes dave. I'm sure there are a lot of Avengers episodes lost, but there is enough with Diana Rigg and her successor on film that 'do' survive,
I have held off for the DVDs (of which there are many episodes) waiting for the big 'blu-ray'. Lets hope!
I'm really looking forward to this but If it's released as a complete set I just pray they don't use that horrible cardboard sleeve packaging that pretty much destroys the discs. As much as I want the show there's no way I'll spend $100 on up for something I know will be defective due to cheap packaging.
@Aerodude73 (and aquagroove): The 1966 movie -- actually a theatrical spinoff of the TV series, and the *only* time Lee Meriwether played Catwoman -- was released on BD by Fox way back in 2008 as "Batman: The Movie". You can already see Meriwether's Catwoman in HD; everyone's waiting for Julie Newmar & Eartha Kitt (and, of course, Yvonne Craig).
