How did Conan O’Brien get the scoop on this???
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will distribute the long-awaited BATMAN live-action television series (1966-68) as a complete box set later in 2014.
More information to come.
The Batman TV series has long been held up by a Byzantine series of rights issues, but I guess everyone finally decided it was better to make some money than make no money so…
HOLY HOME VIDEO, BATMAN!
Yeah, I went there and so did 2957 other bloggers right this minute.
Although the TV show’s home entertainment release was the last hold-up, in recent years licensing rights for the show had suddenly eased up, with comics, dolls, toys and lots of other stuff celebrating one of the weirdest TV shows of all times. Seriously, if this show came out today the only place it could be shown is Adult Swim.
