Batman (1966) - Replacement Disc Details

Discs With Shortened Episodes get Switched

The Batman cult series from the 1960's starring Adam West as Batman was recently released on DVD and Blu-ray after long-living legal battles were finally solved. The joy about that was partially disturbed when it became clear that at least one episode was definitely shortened by one scene. For some episodes, other complaints were expressed (e.g. missing audio commentaries).

Several weeks ago, numerous sites reported that Warner Bros. took the fan complaints seriously and reconstructed the material in question. Here's a detailed list of what should be improved after the replacement discs are there:

  • 1x01 Hi Diddle Riddle: In some airings, an off-commentary was audible that introduced the story.
  • 2x01 Shoot A Crooked Arrow: Initially, a teaser for the bat vehicle toy was shown in this episode.
  • 2x24 Marsha's Scheme of Diamonds: The "tag scene" with a runtime of 1 minute right at the end of the episode was missing on the DVD/BD
  • 2x60 The Duo Defy: Another merchandising promotion teaser.

After Warner only mentioned a client support mail at first, there's now a special online form for the specific handling. You can sign up for that HERE. The delivery of the replacement discs should begin at the end of January 2015.
