This colourful fun programme would run for 3 series, and once cancelled would live on in the world of repeats. Some where at this moment in time, and in some country ........BATMAN is still being shown today.
As a young Boy growing up in the 1960's I had no idea how Camp and Corny the series really was. But we loved it.
Adam West & Burt Ward ARE Bat-Man and Robin.
When I first started my blog, I did a Batman picture, I have gone back and re hashed and tidied it up and therefore, present it again along with a couple of NEW faces from the same programme.
Originally a comic that became a weekly cartoon series for the young. The Teen aged Mutant Ninja Turtles ( in the UK the Ninja Turtles became Hero Turtles ) became an over night success..... and a marketers dream.
HOME SWEET HOME
All boys and girls wanted to own their own Ninja Turtles, which resulted in pet shops selling many Terrapins to brow beaten parents trying their best to be GOOD PARENTS. The toys were great, but the kids wanted more.
This resulted in many UNWANTED Terrapins ending up dumped in ponds and rivers once they started to grow from small cute critters to large snapping horrors. Many faced the ultimate sacrifice...... being flushed down the drains..... ! VERY IRONIC indeed.
The toy range grew and grew, and after the comics and the cartoon series came the video games and the Movies.
The original Heroes in a Half Shell are due back on our screen very soon, with a new TV show or possible Movie outting.. Many of us remember the first time we ventured into the sewers of New York City to enjoy TURTLE POWER , lets hope the next generation still enjoys the antics of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael
Pupfessor Severing Snapp teaches lessons in the use and making of Mutt Magic potions and elixirs.
Not a happy chap on the surface, he finds enjoyment in terrorising his puppy pupils. The school regards him as a fine teacher, but is not to be messed with by the Students of Dogworts. or the other teachers !
His aim in life is to become the head of the Defense Against the Bark Arts at the school, and one day Head Mutt Master of the whole school. Will this happen ? only time will tell.
A very powerful Wiz-hound in his own right, he is one of the good guys, but tends not to show it. His initial dislike of Hairy Potter was due to Hairy's father, who had treated Severing very baddly years ago when they were both students at Dogworts. BUT deep down inside he is proud to have played a part in helping mold and teach the young Wiz-hound enabling Hairy to become one of the greatest Magical Mutts ever.
Lord VOLDE-MUTT is one mean evil dawg. He is responsible for the Murder of Hairy Potter's Parents when Hairy was but a pup.
His attempt to destroy the young Hairy resulted in him being destroyed himself, or so it was believed. The scar on Hairy's head was the only sign left after Volde-mutt was destroyed. This scar would link Hairy to Volde-mutt and vice versa.
Lord Volde-Mutt spend many years as a formless spirit, gradually starting to reform himself, with the help of other evil magical mutts, however the meddling Hairy Potter and his mates stopped Volde-Mutt from becoming fully reformed and re animated on earth many times.
BUT He who cannot be named waits for his chance to return and wreck havoc on the world, and on that return he will have to destroy Hairy Potter before Hairy can destroy HIM.
