Trivia: The 1966 T.V. Batmobile was created from a decade-old "concept show car" designed and built in 1955 by Ford's Lincoln Division. It was called the Lincoln Futura, and was originally a pearlescent pale green. After several years on the car show rounds (and an appearance in one movie, repainted red), it was sold for $1 to George Barris who stored it outdoors for 6 years. When FOX called looking for Barris to build a car for the show, they gave him 3 weeks, so he grabbed this already-weird looking car he had out back, sketched a few changes and passed the physical work to Bill Cushenberry. It was finished on time and the rest is history.

Trivia: In his appearances as The Joker, Cesar Romero's moustache is visible under his makeup. Romero refused to shave it off, so his makeup had to be applied over it.

Trivia: Originally, Batgirl's mask came to points below the eyeholes. It was reshaped when the producers realized that the points left noticeable dents in Yvonne Craig's cheeks that took awhile to go away.

Show generally

Question: Why were three different men used for the villain Mr. Freeze?

Chosen answer: It's wasn't unusual for multiple actors to play one character on this show. The villains on the TV Batman were played by guest stars, not regular cast members. George Sanders, Otto Preminger, and Eli Wallach played the part at various times. They may simply have only wanted to play the part once or twice, or they were later tied up with other projects, making it necessary to cast someone else. Other characters, like Catwoman, were also played by more than one actress.
