If you ask me. We really can't make any biased opinions towards the 1966 version unless one of us lived during that time period.
Sure we think it is corny. But if we ask our dads and grampas they will say that it is awesome. But when we watch it we really don't understand what the time was like back then.
But what we can do now is make fun of Batman and Robin. We all live in this time period now. But I don't like how in Batman Forever and Batman and Robin they have huge architectual wonders compared to the first two movies. Since we understand what life is like during this time we have the right to make fun of it.
But I still don't like how the 60's Batman was. But being the big Batman fan that I am I will still accept it.
