An enlightening show on the History Channel that is being shown at various times is “Batman Unmasked: The Psychology of the Dark Knight.” This show that I recently watched delved into the whole issue of darkness and evil and what motivates the “caped crusader.” I learned a lot from watching “Batman Unmasked.” They also have another show called “Batman Tech” that is about all of the new gadgets in the The Dark Knight.
Somehow, when I think of Batman, all the memories of the 1960’s show and all its campiness comes to the surface. I had a 45 record that had the theme from the TV show on one side and another song on the B-side about Robin:
There goes Robin, where, where?
On the earth and in the air.
Is it any wonder they call him “The Boy Wonder?”
