Batman 1966 series on Me-TV this Saturday!

Me-TV continues its run of the 1966 Batman TV series with the show's first two episodes:

Hi Diddle Riddle
At The Republic Of Moldavia in The Gotham City World's Fair, The Riddler's scheme to use the law against The Batman is already taking shape, as the Moldavian prime minister slices into the Moldavian Friendship cake and unknowingly triggers a hidden bomb inside, releasing a concealed Riddle. This Riddle leads The Dynamic Duo to The Peale Art Gallery, where they catch The Prince Of Puzzlers in the act taking a cross from its proprietor, Gideon Peale, at gunpoint.

Smack in the Middle
 In The Batcave, Batman's attempts to contact his junior partner in crimefighting are met with futility; alerted by Alfred about Aunt Harriet's having a fit on noticing their beds were slept in, The Caped Crusader tells him to put her at ease by saying they're spending the night at Bruce's uncle's house. Meanwhile, The Riddler's "operation" on Robin involved only the making of plaster cast from Robin's masked face, used to make a perfect "Robin" mask for Molly.

New Batman series for 2013: Beware the Batman

Warner Bros. is developing a new CGI- animated Batman series for 2013. Here's the skinny:

The next Batman animated series, debuting in 2013, is titled Beware the Batman. According to Register, the CGI animated series will spotlight a classic-looking Batman teaming up with a gun-toting Alfred Pennyworth and a female ninja sidekick. Beware the Batman is executive-produced by Glen Murakami, and will also explore the mythology’s more obscure villains, such as Professor Pyg, but will also feature mainstays such as The Joker and The Penguin. In the series, Batman will team up with a younger female sidekick named Katana. During the keynote, Register added that Katana will fill the sidekick role, but won't be a replacement for Robin.
