Classic Batman Intro (1966) Re-Created in Stop Motion

Holy caped crusaders, Batman!

About 40 years ago, Adam West and Burt Ward socked and blapped its way into televisions around the world. Team Reckless Abandonment worked countless hours to pay tribute to the dark night and his young ward. Bam!

This isn’t lego Batman. Mattel’s newly released line of ’60s Batman inspired action figures worked perfectly to bring this classic TV intro to life. Oklahoma City-based folk band, O’Fidelis, lent its musical talents to cover the catchy “Batman” theme song and Nathan Poppe once again supplied hand-drawn backgrounds to complete the fun. Oooof!

If Superheroes Had Instagram

What would happen if all your favorite comic book heroes were suddenly into vintage filters and unnecessary hashtags?

It’s good to know that even when you’re out there, fighting crime and saving the world, there’s still always time to snap a pic, make it look old and crappy with a filter, add hashtags, post it on Instagram, wait for people to like it, get frustrated when no one likes it, punch a bad guy to release the anger, and then text your best friend, “Hey, Robin, can you like my post on Instagram? lol no one’s liked it yet. Thanks, you’re the best! We’re still on for bowling at 8, right?”

The Single Comic Book Page That Sold For $660
It was just one page from a comic book, torn out. It was ungradeable, CGC gave it a NG classification.
But it still sold for $660 on eBay. 
It just happened to be the first appearance of The Joker from Batman #1, 1940.

WTF: Batman Themesong With Bat Sounds

Bats produce sounds that are not audible to human ears. First these ultrasounds were digitally reduced to frequencies that are audible. Then the different batsounds were assigned different keys on a keyboard.

On this keyboard - the only real Bat-Organ - Ulrich Seidel played the Batman Theme (Neal Hefti, 1966). The video clip was compiled by Sándor Seuntjens using footage from Batman (film, 1966), Batman (animated television series, 1992-95), and National Geographic (natgeowild.com).

Music arrangement: Ulrich Seidel, Erfurt, Germany.
Video compilation: Sándor Seuntjens, Brussels, Belgium.
Idea: Wolter Seuntjens, Erfurt, Germany
