Adam West’s Five Best Batman Moments

Unable to play video. Neither flash nor html5 is supported!

With the sad news of Adam West‘s passing, it seemed like a good time to remember the best moments of his most iconic role, that of the 1960’s Batman.

A list like this could easily encompass more than 5 of course, but there are a few that stand out as the best of the bunch. That said, everyone will have their favorite moments, and with so many, it is hard to believe that the show only ran for three years.

Adam West brought a palatable charm and dry wit to his voice as Batman, something that makes these scenes even better.

Without further ado, here are the top five best Adam West Batman moments, starting with one of his most iconic adversaries Catwoman, played by the ravishing Julie Newmar.

Starting with one of Batman and Robin’s most consistently entertaining foes, Julie Newmar’s Catwoman managed to put Batman in quite the scenario.

In their typical battles, Catwoman’s henchmen would do most of her bidding, with Catwoman leaping in on occasion. This time she manages to apprehend Batman in a closed off cell with a very hungry Tiger.

Yep, Batman fights a Tiger.

Trying to avoid the Tiger’s lunges proves difficult for Batman, so he reaches into his utility belt to grab some Bat claws and uses them to climb high on the walls, barely out of the Tiger’s reach.

Using his ingenuity (and Marry Poppins-like belt) he puts on a pair of special Bat-ear-plugs and uses his Bat-communicator (also located in his belt) to reverse the frequency and create a pitch that all but subdues the caged animal.

The best part? That would be when in the midst of trying to save his own life he chides Catwoman for not taking care of her pet.

Turn Your Backyard Into a Wildlife Refuge for Under $40

One of my favorite things about where I live is that there is all kinds of wildlife I can see right outside my window. I don’t need to go anywhere to experience nature. If you want to boost the wildlife population in your yard, here are some inexpensive ideas that provide a safe habitat for local creatures.

Bee house

Build a mason bee house to attract these pollinating bees to live and work in your yard. You can also buy a stylish pre-made mason bee house for about $20.

Bird house

Install a birdhouse to give birds a place to live in your yard even if you don’t have a lot of natural nesting sites. You can design and build your own birdhouse from a variety of scavenged materials including coffee cans and cowboy boots or order a wooden birdhouse kit for around $12.

Bird feeder

Birds will come from all around if you put out a bird feeder and keep it stocked with fresh birdseed. You can choose a simple tube-style feeder for as cheap as $5–$10, or get a rectangular feeder for a few dollars more. Sprinkle a bit of feed on the ground to help birds find it.

Hummingbird feeder

You can attract hummingbirds to your yard by putting out a nectar feeder, which will cost around $10. Hummingbirds are attracted to red, so choose a feeder that is red or one that has a clear glass that can be filled with red nectar. Change the nectar every few days to keep it fresh. You can buy this nectar in bulk (about 64 oz) for about $10. I mix my own nectar in small batches using a powdered formula. You can also keep unused portions of nectar fresh in your refrigerator until you need…
