* IAmNotSpock: Creator/AdamWest was so strongly associated with the role of Batman that it permanently typecast him and killed his then-fledgling acting career. After failing to distance himself from the series, he eventually got over it and not only embraced this reputation, but even managed to partially escape it by [[AdamWesting turning into a parody of himself.]]

* UnfinishedEpisode: An unproduced 1960s episode written by Creator/HarlanEllison was to have featured a [[TheSixties very psychodelic]] ComicBook/TwoFace.

to:

* UnfinishedEpisode: An unproduced 1960s episode written by Creator/HarlanEllison wrote an unproduced script for the show with '''Two-Face''' as the villain. The script revealed that his origin in the show was to have featured that he was a [[TheSixties very psychodelic]] ComicBook/TwoFace.TV news anchor who had a TV set blow up in his face. Creator/ClintEastwood was even considered for the role, but the character was ultimately dropped because he was considered "too gruesome" for such a light-hearted show. The episode finally saw the light of day when it was adapted into "The Lost Episode" of the ''Batman '66'' comic book.



** Also, Two-Face was once considered as a villain for the show, only his origin would be that he was a TV news anchor who had a TV set blow up in his face. '''Creator/ClintEastwood''' was even considered for the role but the character was ultimately dropped because he was considered "too gruesome" for such a light-hearted show. Imagine Creator/ClintEastwood playing Harvey "Two Face" Dent. Yeah. Damn ExecutiveMeddling!
*** In addition, the script for the episode was written by none other than Creator/HarlanEllison! The episode finally saw the light of day as the 2014 comic ''Batman '66: The Lost Episode''.

** Robert Morely was originally supposed to play the Sandman, but quit after the episode was rewritten to include Catwoman [[note]]the producers had guaranteed another Catwoman episode, so they had Charles Hoffman rewrite the Sandman episode to include her, since it was cheaper than making another one[[/note]]. This led to Michael Rennie getting the part, whom the co-writer felt was "too stiff," [[CreatorBacklash resulting in him disowning the episode]].
