Holy crappy movie Batman!


My ten year old daughter was wanting to watch something on Netflix.  Kelsey likes superheros.  She likes for me to include various superhero characters in made-up bedtime stories.   I was kind of striking out on shows she hand not seen.  I asked her if she had ever seen the old Batman TV show or the Batman movie (1966) that I watched when I was a kid. "No sir."  Okay, here we go!

I was not sure she would enjoy the old Batman. The old Batman was kind of a square character, not the Dark Knight young folk are familiar with seeing today.  I didn't think Kelsey would appreciate the campy version of The Dynamic Duo of yesterday.

I couldn't find the old television show Netflix, but the Batman movie was available.  She LOVED it!  I think she enjoyed the old Batman just as much as I did when I was her age.  It is a terrible movie to endure as an adult.  I did enjoy watching her get into it.

She chuckled when she first beheld The Penguin's giant penguin secret-submarine.  She laughed at Batman trying to run this way and that with a bomb that was about to explode.  She giggled to see Cat Woman grooming herself and making noises like a real kitty.  She thought the Batcopter, the Batboat and the Batmobile were awesome.  I must admit, I think the original Batmobile is still pretty awesome too.

She wants to see more and I guess I'll have to run to the store some bat-time and find her a few bat-seasons of the television show.
