Before Adam West comes to the Cincinnati Comic Expo this weekend, I want you to see his most famous appearance here – with crazy movie host Bob Shreve on WKRC-TV’s “Past Prime Playhouse.”

West, in his “Batman” mask and cape, visits Channel 12’s all-night movie show while in town for a custom car show in late 1975 or early 1976. 

TV’s former “Batman” (1966-68) swings onto the set on a rope and tells Bob he’s working on his first case here in Cincinnati. To which Bob says: “It’s funny that you say you’re working on your first case, because I’m working on my third!”

Holy Nostalgia, Batman! TV’s original Dynamic Duo – Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward) – will attend the Cincinnati Comic Expo Sept. 19-20 at Duke Energy Convention Center.

“Batman” celebrates its 50th anniversary on Jan. 12, 1966. ABC aired two half-hour episodes a year the first season, both of which finished in the top 10 for the 1965-66  TV year. They filmed 120 episodes, plus a “Batman” movie in two years.
