What’s this? The Caped Crusaders are back in an animated adventure?
As it happens, Adam West and Burt Ward will reprise their roles as Batman and Robin in the upcoming direct-to-video release, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. And as seen in this trailer posted by Entertainment Weekly, the puns and comical death traps are back as well:
Julie Newmar will also be back to reprise her role as Catwoman — though the Batman ’66 series always credited her as “The Catwoman” — and according to Batman, the Joker, Riddler and Penguin are along for the ride as well.
But one thing I wonder — will the excited narrator also return? In the original series, he was voiced by the show’s executive producer William Dozier and voice actors like Billy West and Maurice LaMarche can do pretty good impressions of his breathless recaps.
Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders comes Digital HD on October 11th and Blu-Ray on November 1st
