The new merchandise launch will feature captured photography from the live-action series, as well as illustrated character art inspired by the series’ animated opening sequence, and will incorporate the vehicles, gadgets and catchphrases that have made the show a cultural phenomenon.

Brad Globe, president of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, said in a statement: “The ‘Batman’ classic TV series celebrates an incarnation of Batman that for many fans was their first introduction to ‘The Caped Crusader’ and his many friends and foes. This new licensing program captures the playful and stylish spirit of the iconic ‘Batman’ while bringing a fresh look that will appeal to the ‘Batman’ enthusiasts and nostalgic fan base, as well as to a new generation of fans.”
