Batman - Official Announce Reveals Season 1 Set, Finalized Box Art, Hot Wheels Batmobile, More! ***UPDATE: Warner Tweets 'Uncut'!***


November 11th in-store date for Complete Television Series DVD, Complete Television Series: Limited Edition Blu-ray, AND Batman - The Television Series: The Complete 1st Season on DVD

Posted by David Lambert
7/25/2014
 
Last night the 2014 San Diego Comic Con officially got under way, and one of the first big events was Warner Home Video's "Bat-panel," featuring Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar to formally introduce WHV's long-awaited November 11th DVD and Blu-ray releases of the 1966 Batman live-action television series. With that unveiling last night, this morning the studio has distributed finalized info and package art for their three November 11th Bat-titles. Did we say "3" there? YES! Because not only is Warner releasing the previously-announced Batman - The Complete Television Series DVD set (18 discs, $199.70 SRP), and the Batman - The Complete Television Series: Limited Edition Blu-ray set (13 BD discs, $269.97 SRP, with UltraViolet digital, Hot Wheels replica Batmobile, Adam West Scrapbook and 44 Vintage Trading Cards), but they've just announced that on the same day they will also put in stores a bare-bones (i.e.: no extras) DVD release of Batman - The Television Series: The Complete 1st Season (5 discs, $39.98 SRP).

As it turns out, the previous cover art we passed along for the Batman - The Complete Television Series: Limited Edition Blu-ray set was a placeholder image rather than the finalized art, and the actual package is an impressive (and long) "gift box" that is chock full o' Bat-stuff...especially the afore-mentioned Hot Wheels replica Batmobile! This morning we see that the folks at the Warner Archive (although these titles are NOT "Warner Archive" products, but rather traditionally-pressed discs which WILL be sold in stores) helped post images from the SDCC Bat-panel, including a "beauty shot" peek at the contents of the Limited Edition Blu-ray set (while West, Ward and Newmar look on). That image we have for you at the bottom, along with the finalized package art images for all three titles.

First up, though, let's have a breakdown of everything you'll get in each title, while stating that the aspect ratio for all three is said by Warner to be the original 4X3 "full frame" (square) that passionate fans will certainly expect and demand (no word yet on language support or format, other than English, nor is there word so far on whether or not there will be any subtitles or closed captioning...the studio simply hasn't said yet!):

  • Batman - The Television Series: The Complete 1st Season (5 discs, $39.98 SRP):
      Greeting Citizens! With perfectly pitched scripts and the iconic high-camp cleverness of "Pow!," "Thwack!" and "Zap!" graphics, Batman leapt off the pages of the comics and into our living rooms to become one of the biggest hits in television history. The entire first season, complete with cliffhangers, Bat-gadgets and alter egos, is captured here, including an episode guide to all the pop culture and adventure. Witness the debut of diabolical foes, from the raucous Riddler to the persuasive Penguin to the calculating Catwoman, as they attempt to confound our Caped Crusaders, Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward). Now completely re-mastered, all of the originality, crime fighting action, and arch-villainy of the premiere season are perfectly pixilated on DVD like never before - for those who were there, and a new generation of Bat-fans!
