Holy Island Batman

Holy mackerel
We are in real trouble now
Holy cannoli

Lindisfarne Castle
Batman, what do we do now
Cut off from the world

On the “Batman” TV series, which ran for 120 episodes between 1966 and 1968, Batman’s sidekick Robin (played by Burt Ward), was well known for his ever-changing exclamation catchphrase that would always begin with the word “holy”.  The second part of the exclamation would always involve something related to what Robin was shouting about in that episode.

  1. Watched it everyday in syndication. I was only 1 when it came out. I always pretended to be batgirl, once she showed. Burt Ward was only The Ellen Show last season or the season before. Memory is going. He has a very large dog rescue facility with his wife. Pretty cool story.

      1. My hubby is 10 years older than I am. He was a Trekkie. Actually still is. Or better yet takes pride in being like Captain Kirk & his way with the ladies back in the day. He watched all the cool tv shows new each week including Batman.
