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.
