In honor of this release, we have an all-new video clip that features Adam West discussing his favorite episode from the 120-episode series, along with a short, famous scene of Batman/Adam West creating the dance craze, the Batusi (alongside Jill St. John).

This fully remastered TV series appears in high definition and features over 3 hours of new featurettes and an episode guide detailing the plots and guest stars. The Blu-ray limited edition set adds Adam West’s photo scrapbook, a pack of 44 collectible trading cards and a Hot Wheels replica Batmobile.

The limited edition Blu-ray set gives you the Red Carpet Treatment. It’s a larger case (see pic above) that opens up like a cabinet door. There are magnets on the door which help keep it closed. Inside, you see a form-fitted case with a pocket for the Hot Wheels car, the 44 trading cards and a section that holds each of the three seasons and the two booklets. Also, there’s a button on the outside of the case that plays the Batman theme song when you press it.
