Dangerous Stunts on Batman

Adam West (Batman) and Burt Ward (Robin) recall the risky stunts during the early days of “Batman.”  Ward was sent to the hospital multiple times during the first week of shooting.  “Batman” is featured in Pioneers of Television’s Superheroes episode, premiering Tuesday, January 29, 8 pm on PBS.

    If that show was on now, due to new rules for stunts and action scenes to perform on TV, they would have been fined, likely gone to court, and jail, and maybe the show would have been yanked from the air because of the bad PR.
