I’m pretty sure very few people under the age of 50 became fans of Batman through the old Adam West Batman TV show, but that’s how I did. Reruns on some random channel at some random time were some of my favorite things to watch, and nothing since then has ever quite lived up to just how odd that show was. Probably nothing ever will.
However, I’ll take an animated reboot movie any day of the week over nothing, and that’s exactly what Return of the Caped Crusaders is. As you can tell from the trailer this is basically an animated episode of the 60s Batman TV show along with the voice of Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar. It is thus one of the greatest things ever.
The only problem I’ve got with it? The Joker doesn’t have a mustache!
