** Cesar Romero's Joker laugh was created almost by accident. Shortly after being cast, Romero met with producers to discuss his role on his series. While waiting to meet with them, Romero happened to see conceptual art of Joker's costuming. Romero felt the pictures almost looked absurd, and as a result spontaneously broke out into a playfully loud and almost manic laughter. A producer overhearing it responded by telling Romero "That's it, that's your Joker's laugh!"

** The series might be at risk of [[HereWeGoAgain falling into limbo yet again]], as Creator/{{Disney}}, parent of DC rival Creator/MarvelComics, announced a deal to acquire Fox's entertainment assets, including the rights to the ''Batman'' series, in December 2017. Better get a copy of the series if you have a chance!

** Creator/OttoPreminger, best known as a director but also played Mr. Freeze in a two-parter, was known for being difficult to work with as both an actor and director. West commented that when the time came for him to pick up his unconscious body that he wouldn't offer any subtle assistance, forcing West to pick up dead weight. It's no surprise that [[TheOtherDarrin Freeze was recast]] for his next appearance.

* DearNegativeReader: Adam West was not amused by people referring to the show as "campy," upset that all the hard physical work the cast and crew put into the show was shrugged off in favor of mocking its (intentional) silliness.

* NoSuntDouble: Burt Ward was required to do his own stunts. This was partly because Robin's DominoMask would make hiding a double's face harder, and partly because the studio wanted to save money by not having to pay another stunt double. Burt was a legitimate martial artist, but by the time the show was over, he had been hospitalized over a dozen times.

** Some of the earlier drafts focused on Batman's origins and featured Robin, whose parents would've accidentally been killed by the Joker while he was fleeing Batman. Irish actor Ricky Addison Reed was cast as Dick Grayson, but the segment was ultimately cut from the script.
