Batman: The Complete Television Series Blu-ray set

In conjunction with their panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this week, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released the above image of the Limited Edition Blu-ray set of Batman: The Complete Television Series, which will be available on November 11.

As you can see, they’re playing up the Day-Glo 60s camp aspects. The sets will be individually numbered and include a replica Batmobile from Hot Wheels, an Adam West scrapbook “featuring never-before-seen photos from Adam’s own archives”, 44 vintage trading cards, an episode guide with “synopsis of all episodes, photos from the series, and a personal letter from Adam West to the fans”, and UltraViolet digital copies of all 120 episodes. It’s priced at almost $270, but this sounds like a very nice package that will make a terrific gift. (And no Amazon discount currently, although given the holiday season release timing, that’s expected to change.) Oh, and there are special features, too.

“Hanging With Batman” — A true slice of life in the words of Adam West.

“Holy Memorabilia Batman!” — A journey into the most sought-after collectibles through the eyes of three extraordinary collectors.

“Batmania Born! Building the World of Batman” — Explore the art and design behind the fiction.

“Bats of the Round Table” — A candid conversation with Adam West and his celebrity friends, chatting all things Bat ’66.

“Inventing Batman in the Words of Adam West (episode 1 & 2)” — A rare treat for the fans as Adam discusses his script notes on bringing Batman to life in the first and second episodes.

“Na Na Na Batman!” — Hollywood favorite’s stars and producers recount their favorite Batman memories.

No commentaries, and no substantial documentary on the history or results of the show, unfortunately, but they are promising “interviews with both Adam West and Burt Ward”, and perhaps more will be announced later. The extras — but not the premium items — will be available on the Complete Series DVD set as well. New to me in this was the announcement that they will also release Batman: The Complete First Season, which will have 34 episodes on five DVD discs with no extras at a list price of $39.98, in case you just want the episodes.
