My other car is a batmobile

See? I've even got the patent for it hanging on my blog. Patent print by the PatentPrint Shop on Etsy.

On a recent walk home from school, The Eight-Year-Old asked, curiously, “Mommyo, are you ever a masked super hero?”

Mommyo, evasively: “Only on days that end in ‘e’.”

    I remember as a young teen, watching the original Batman on TV…on color TV! You have to have been there to really appreciate that. Also, even to us kids, it was a riot, campy and completely ridiculous. Not much above the Sid and Marty Croft Kid shows in quality, if you can even relate to those. For the first few shows, my friends and I rolled on the floor, laughing so hard. Seeing that batmobile jiggling down the road with the fake flames coming out was just as ridiculous as the puppet people and their rocket in Fireball XL-5 (you’ll have to look that one up!). To people nowadays, they mostly have no clue about the origins of the first Batman on TV, which was probably a huge embarrassment to the comic book originators. Got to love Adam West and Burt Ward, not to mention Frank Gorshin and Syd Ceaser!

      I remember watching Batman on tv as a kid too, although the color part of it was just how things were for me. I’m looking forward to sharing it with the 9YO. something tells me she’s just the right age to appreciate it.
