It was an honor most fitting for the man we grew up knowing as Batman (and yes, I was one of those kids raised on BAM! POW! and Holy Bat-Trap!).
Los Angeles lit up the Bat Signal last night, to honor the late Adam West. The mayor, the police chief, and of course, Robin (Burt Ward) were there--
"Wowie Zowie" said Robin, as they flipped the switch!
Here's the aerial view--
And the event drew quite a crowd--
Of course, those who know the series noticed it was exactly the way you should aim a Bat-Signal-- but don't you think it's really the thought that counts here? Not comic book accuracy?
If you never saw the series... or could use a little refresher... here's an instance of the Bat-Signal showing up in the clouds over Gotham City. And we all know what happens next-- To the Bat Cave!!!
