    Agreed. Batman '66 Team up would make a great regular series.

    Unlike Green Hornet of that time not many of those feel really analogous to the style or feel of Batman TV show, which ended around 68, most of those are mid 75s and then way beyond.

    The closest conceptually & aesthetically might be Captain Marvel & Isis and Electra Woman or Dyna Girl could be fun.
    Seeing the Dynamic Duo & The Bionic Duo team-up might work too

    Does it have to be "superheroes" though?

    The first thing I thought of when I saw the poll was like Green Hornet a show that was actually on roughly the same time.

    The Addams Family. ...meets the Batman Family.

    Maybe the Addams on vacation rent the abandoned manor near Wayne manor.
    I can picture Bruce Wayne stepping out on his balcony to be greeted by Gomez on the balcony across the way luring bats into their home. Or maybe Pugsley has burrowed his way into the Batcave.
    If it has to be heroes the Addams can even come up with their own ghoulish "hero" disguises for the "episode".


    (Adam West) Batman meats the swashbuckling sword wielding cavalier zen-yogi master (John Astin) Gomez Addams, that would be hysterical.
    Also (Julie Newmar) sensual Catwoman paired with (Carolyn Jones) whip-wielding Morticia.

    edit:
    Thinking more on it, most of the cast has great analogues for a 60s campy/creepy kooky team-up.


    Batman (Wayne) - Gomez : Two eccentric playboy billionaire adventurers.
    Catwoman - Morticia: Two dark mysterious Femme fatales, with an affinity for whips and claws.
    Robin - Pugsley: The prodigy Boy Wonders
    Batgirl - Wednesday: the Gothic daredolls.
    Alfred - Lurch: The Tall lanky Loyal butlers.
    Maybe introduce Man-Bat from the Batfamily - Uncle Fester: The creepy uncle in the attic? No? ;P
    Aunt Harriet - Grandmama: The old bags.

    Ace - Thing

    All of them would be great. But which would you like to see next?

    I voted Wonder Woman, but Electra-Woman and Dyna-Girl would be a hoot -- since they were pretty much a distaff version of the Dynamic Duo.

    George Reeves Superman. This isn't even a question.

    Wonder Woman... especially if it led to a Lynda Carter inspired WW book.
    Detective Comics - Batman and Robin - Batman - Grayson - Justice League

    Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman '77, please!

    I desperately need that as an ongoing.

    Not a huge stretch, given that both guest starred on Scooby Doo in the 70s.

    Personally, I'd love to see a storyline that teams the Adam West 60s Batman with the George Reeves 50s Superman and the Lynda Carter 70s Wonderwoman. I would also accept Batman '66-ized versions of the major DC characters. (Imagine a Batman '66 version of the Justice League or the Teen Titans!)

    Since they're the more obscure choices, I'm gonna go with either M.A.N.T.i.S. or Night Man.

    Would you set it in WWII or the "70's" era?

    If it was set during WWII, they could call it WONDER WOMAN '76 '42!
