Can You Name These ’60s Batman TV Show Villains?
One of the most iconic comic book based television shows of all time (if not THE most iconic), the 1960s Batman series was a showcase for the talents of Adam West, who gave a classic, if campy performance as the Caped Crusader, aided by Burt Ward as his trusty sidekick Robin. They set the gold standard for all superhero shows to follow, with a series adored by kids and adults alike.
The creative forces behind the Batman television series realized that their heroes are only as good as their villains, and Batman featured a formidable and memorable Rogues Gallery of fiendish foes who always had it in for the Dynamic Duo. Whether they originated in DC Comics or were created specifically for the show (or actor), the roster of adversaries was a delightfully devious group of miscreants that appeared over the course of the colorful show’s three seasons (which ran from 1966-1968).
So Bat-fans, it’s time to test your knowledge and see if you know your rogues! Be sure to use your Dark Knight detective skills to deduce the identity of the 25 villains on this list. The safety of Gotham City (not to mention your geek cred) is depending on it. Holy Test Anxiety, Batman!
