    Agreed. Batman '66 Team up would make a great regular series.

    Unlike Green Hornet of that time not many of those feel really analogous to the style or feel of Batman TV show, which ended around 68, most of those are mid 75s and then way beyond.

    The closest conceptually & aesthetically might be Captain Marvel & Isis and Electra Woman or Dyna Girl could be fun.
    Seeing the Dynamic Duo & The Bionic Duo team-up might work too

    Does it have to be "superheroes" though?

    The first thing I thought of when I saw the poll was like Green Hornet a show that was actually on roughly the same time.

    The Addams Family. ...meets the Batman Family.

    Maybe the Addams on vacation rent the abandoned manor near Wayne manor.
    I can picture Bruce Wayne stepping out on his balcony to be greeted by Gomez on the balcony across the way luring bats into their home. Or maybe Pugsley has burrowed his way into the Batcave.
    If it has to be heroes the Addams can even come up with their own ghoulish "hero" disguises for the "episode".


    (Adam West) Batman meats the swashbuckling sword wielding cavalier zen-yogi master (John Astin) Gomez Addams, that would be hysterical.
    Also (Julie Newmar) sensual Catwoman paired with (Carolyn Jones) whip-wielding Morticia.

    edit:
    Thinking more on it, most of the cast has great analogues for a 60s campy/creepy kooky team-up.


    Batman (Wayne) - Gomez : Two eccentric playboy billionaire adventurers.
    Catwoman - Morticia: Two dark mysterious Femme fatales, with an affinity for whips and claws.
    Robin - Pugsley: The prodigy Boy Wonders
    Batgirl - Wednesday: the Gothic daredolls.
    Alfred - Lurch: The Tall lanky Loyal butlers.
    Maybe introduce Man-Bat from the Batfamily - Uncle Fester: The creepy uncle in the attic? No? ;P
    Aunt Harriet - Grandmama: The old bags.

    Ace - Thing

    I voted Wonder Woman, but Electra-Woman and Dyna-Girl would be a hoot -- since they were pretty much a distaff version of the Dynamic Duo.

    George Reeves Superman. This isn't even a question.
    You can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, if more of my opinions sounds like something you'd like.

    Not a huge stretch, given that both guest starred on Scooby Doo in the 70s.

    Personally, I'd love to see a storyline that teams the Adam West 60s Batman with the George Reeves 50s Superman and the Lynda Carter 70s Wonderwoman. I would also accept Batman '66-ized versions of the major DC characters. (Imagine a Batman '66 version of the Justice League or the Teen Titans!)

    Not a superhero I know, but it would be pretty wild. They should get Sid Krofft to write it.
    If they are doing Krofft Show crossovers I imagine it'll be; Electra Woman and Dyna Girl!

    As for or 77 WW or Batman 66 and EW & DG, they definitely still need to do that!

    Seems like they missed the opportunity.

    One of the cool things to come out of the BATMAN '66/WONDER WOMAN '77 crossover was that we saw in the later continuity of the old BATMAN '66 show, (Burt Ward's) Dick Grayson eventually becomes Nightwing, as the comic book version did (though not until 1984).

    That makes me wonder...would there have been a Jason Todd Robin in the future of the BATMAN '66 timeline, and if so, which young 1970s celebrity would have been the template for his appearance? Donny Osmond as Jason Todd? David Cassidy as Jason Todd? Leif Garrett as Jason Todd?

    All of them would be great. But which would you like to see next?

    Since they're the more obscure choices, I'm gonna go with either M.A.N.T.i.S. or Night Man.

    That would work.

    Another possible crossover TV franchise that would actually fit the 66 theme, time frame and style of the book, would be Star Trek.

    “Alexander the Great” not withstanding, a scene where Adam West and William Shatner ham it up and try to outdo their scenery chewing, would be tremendous!



    Likewise Khan (Montalbán) and Joker (Romero) can switch places (by way of transport mixup) and each wreak havoc in the other's place.

    Or Gorshin Ridller and that half-face alien.

    Others that might work are Man from U.N.C.L.E, Avengers, Get Smart.

    Bat-phone gets switched with the Shoe-phone.
