In 2013, [[http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2013/03/dc-to-launch-digital-first-batman-comic-based-on-classic-tv-show/ DC announced]] ''Batman '66'', a digital-first comic based on the series, with license to the rights for all the actors on the show, and written by Jeff Parker of ''ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}'' and Marvel's ''ComicBook/AgentsOfAtlas''; it ended in 2015 with print issue #30. The popularity and critical success of this series led to Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman's ''Batman '66 Meets Franchise/TheGreenHornet'' SequelEpisode miniseries, as well as Parker's own crossover ''Batman '66 Meets Series/TheManFromUNCLE''. Parker also introduced versions of some characters who post-date the series, starting with [[spoiler: Harley Quinn]]. ''The Lost Episode'', adapted by Len Wein from a rejected Creator/HarlanEllison script, also features the first appearance of Comicbook/TwoFace in this continuity.

* VillainTeamUp: The third season was built heavily on this. Two three-part episodes in the second season each had the Penguin team up with another villain (SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in the first one and Marsha, Queen of Diamonds in the second). ''Film/BatmanTheMovie'' had the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler, and Catwoman all work together.

The series still tends to be polarizing. Many enjoy it for its sheer farce and surrealism -- or for its nostalgia value -- but at the same time, many modern Batman fans consider this Batman to be the opposite of the Batman they know and love. Many comics fans also consider the show to be responsible for tainting an entire medium in the eyes of the general public; to this day, [[http://www.theonion.com/article/comics-not-just-for-kids-anymore-reports-85000th-m-28727 mainstream news stories about comic books]] are likely to have headlines like "Pow! Zap! Wham! Comic Books Aren't Just For Kids Anymore!" The series is sometimes blamed for causing the Batman comic line to adopt a "campier" tone as well, but [[{{Misblamed}} in truth]] the main difference between this series and the "New Look" Batman comics that immediately preceded it was that the TV show was intentionally funny. The series did play a key role in the continued existence of the entire Bat franchise, however; comics sales had been in a serious decline, but the series provided a great deal of publicity, which led to a much-needed sales boost in Batman comics. In addition, the series was highly influential: Cesar Romero, Frank Gorshin, and Burgess Meredith would become the template for future Jokers, Riddlers, and Penguins. The creators of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' acknowledged the legacy of Adam West's ''Batman'' by paying him homage in [[Recap/BatmanTheAnimatedSeriesE18BewareTheGrayGhost one of the episodes]].

* BedlamHouse: Averted. Arkham Asylum was not introduced in the comics until several years after the TV series' end. In any case, the show typically represents the villains as flamboyant, but sane, crooks (even TheJoker!), with King Tut (who has a form of insanity that presents itself as a SplitPersonality) being the only notable exception although the Riddler may have also been an exception as he generally acted like the Joker ''should'' have complete with insane giggle.

** And of course, this disappeared entirely once Eartha Kitt stepped into Catwoman's boots, due to ValuesDissonance over a Black villainess crushing on a white hero and/or [[HanlonsRazor the shortened length of the episodes leaving no time for such things]]. Either way, Kitt's Catwoman was even more of a CardCarryingVillain than Newmar's, so it probably wouldn't have worked out anyhow.

** One episode had a villain named Dr. Cassandra fire at Batman, Robin and Batgirl with a alchemical ray gun that would render them two-dimensional. (Just go with it.) When Batgirl commented "I'm getting flat!" Dr. Cassandra's husband responded with "What a pity!" Later in the same episode, Robin admires a sleeping Batgirl and Batman says something about "the first thrust of manhood"...which might be slightly less unsettling if her sleep weren't drug induced. Also, Dr. Cassandra's husband makes a comment on how it is normal for a husband and wife to bump into each other.

In later appearances Freeze rarely uses it thanks to [[CrazyPrepared precautions]] taken by Batman. In his second appearance, Miss Iceland is put in a block of ice, and when she comes out, she is ok.

* HumanOutsideAlienInside: Mr. Freeze in his first appearance, where (when not wearing his protective suit) he is simply a middle-aged German man who must be exposed to subzero temperatures at all times (and Batman even refers to him by his "human" name on two occasions). Subsequent appearances (by different actors) showed him much more grotesque - resembling the redeemed Darth Vader at the end of ''ReturnOfTheJedi'' in his second episode, and as almost a vampire in his third and final episode. One suspects that Freeze's condition must have worsened, or that his body mutated in order to more comfortably adapt to his surroundings.

With its intentionally absurd writing (particularly Batman's array of gadgets, which seemed large enough to cater for [[CrazyPrepared any given situation]] -- the legendary Shark-Repellent Batspray comes to mind) and shonky production values, this was more like a televised {{pantomime}}/vaudeville/burlesque than anything resembling portrayals of superheroes in modern day media. The series managed to become something of a cultural icon, but it is also partly responsible for the general public's dim view of comic book writing and comics in general today (though, [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks at the time]], it was a pretty faithful adaptation of the comics).

* AffablyEvil: Mr. Freeze (especially the Creator/GeorgeSanders version).
** The Sanders version in particular. He makes sure that his henchmen and mountain butler are warm in his lair, rewards his henchmen by tossing diamonds on the floor ("chickenfeed"), and imposes a very strict ThouShaltNotKill policy. He also treats Batman rather cordially; the only reason he wants revenge on Batman is because the Caped Crusader put him in the instant freeze accident, no more and no less. In the first half of the "Instant Freeze"/"Rats Like Cheese" two-parter, he even [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone expresses regret at freezing the dynamic duo]].
