Adam West in top pre-Batman form in this vintage commercial for Kellogg’s Flosted Fwakes…err…Prosted Fakes…guess you better just watch this recently uncovered gem yourself.
This is truly a wonderful and rare find! It’s an interview from when the cast of the 1966 Batman film was in Austin for the film’s premiere. The local CBS affiliate’s noontime host, Jean Boone, talks with Catwoman (Lee Merriwether), Joker (Cesar Romero) and Batman (Adam West). It’s a really special piece of history and trip down memory lane. Watch the interview here. Thanks to Martin Zamorano for the find.
I grew tired of staring at my feet at home and decided to stare at my feet somewhere else…Europe. My wife forced me. Hope you enjoy the little travelogue I made. -Adam West
At the CBS Studios in Studio City, I did an on-camera interview with regards to THE FAMILY GUY for FOX Promotions. All went well and the writers and producers there were all a very clever guys. They seem to ‘understand’ my humor. The NBC pilot that I did a few years back, titled, LOOKWELL was always mentioned by these talented young guys. We all laughed as the pilot gags were remembered. About a week later I get a call from my agent saying the same talented writers and producers want to do a series of sketches on what Adam West is watching on the FOX Network. Once I read the inventive scripts I knew I should do these clever, yet very offbeat sketches. We filmed them all within an eight hour day….starting around 11 ayem until 7pm….complete with set props and costume changes. The crew went from one sketch to another. It was just that fast. I was very pleased with the outcome. And from my e-mails so are many of you. Bat wishes, ADAM WEST
Here’s a little gem we came across on the web! Lookwell was a TV series pilot created in the early 90’s by Robert Smigel and Conan O’Brian that starred Adam West as Lookwell, an ex-TV detective with continued delusions of crime-fighting. The show never got picked up, which is truly a shame because it’s hilarious!
