Batman on the telly, 1977

Real mixed feelings about this back then and still now.
While it was a good idea to have Adam West and Burt Ward voice their characters for this, and the Batmobile was neat, it was offset massively by:
The usual Filmation crudeness,
the toning down of violence so much,
Batmite - he was a product of the 50's SF silliness, and that's where he should've stayed. Okay, go for the younger audience but, c'mon.
The Riddlers puce outfit,
But, worst of all for me was the smug, effite Joker with that jarring, flamin' annoying speech and laugh.
Teeth are gritting right now as i type.
