January 12, 1966
nananana nananana The start of Bat-mania
Batman first episode is broadcasted by ABC, as a mid-season replacement. ABC was 3rd in USA rankings and in desperate need of a hit. Although the audience tests were poor, the series became an instant success with kids and adults.

Adam West became Batman and Burt Ward became Robin. The show was noteworthy for its memorable use of onomatopoeia during climactic fight scenes.
When not fighting crime as Batman and Robin, the Dynamic Duo were often found at Wayne manor in their respective identities as Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. Living alongside them in the vast mansion, was old Aunt Harriet and their mild-mannered butler, Alfred. Alfred was the only other person to know Batman and Robin's secret identities.
Do not miss this great documentary (if you have 45 mins)

Cesar Romero made numerous appearances as the Joker, while Burgess Meredith reinvented the image of the Penguin, with his crooked smile and trademark "Squawk".
Julie Newmar provided Catwoman's rolling "R"s, only to be replaced later by Lee Meriwether for the 1966 movie, and again in the final season by Eartha Kitt.
Two men provided their talents to the role of the Riddler - Frank Gorshin (in the first and third seasons) and John Astin (in a one-off second-season appearance).
In addition to the fantastic sets and costumes, the series also featured a number of gadget-filled vehicles: Batmobile (which had originated in the comics), Batcycle, Batboat, and the Batcopter. The Batmobile was a 1955 Lincoln Futura that George Barris customized in only three weeks. Two Batcycles appeared on the show; the first was a barely modified Harley Davidson, and the second was a highly modified Yamaha. The Batboat was built by Glastron. Some of the specialty vehicles - in particular the Batboat and Batcopter - were constructed under the budget for the 1966 film.
During its first two seasons, the series aired twice a week, with each week featuring a two-part story, with the exception of a one-off three-part Penguin story that aired midway through season 2. As a result, season 1 aired for 34 episodes, while season 2 aired for a massive 60 episodes, at a time when most US prime-time series only aired 25 or so episodes a season. In season 3 the series was scaled back to once a week and the show began mixing up the formula by airing a mixture of single-episode, two-part and three-part storylines. Only 20 episodes were made that year.

I love virtuals!
 
OCNA proudly offers our users the opportunity to publish VIRTUAL caches. A virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location only. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit. In order to log a find, you need to convince the cache owner you've been at the spot indicated. This is often achieved by locating a password found at the site or by submitting a photo with your log.

There was a virtual near the hotel where our conference was.  I didn't have time to go find it since we were pretty busy all weekend.  I'm going to make a note of it and try to get back over there soon to do it.
