Conan O'Brien, whose show Conan is shot on the Warner Bros. lot, announced today that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the original 1966 Batman series on DVD later this year. Take a look at the late-night talk show host's tweet, which includes a photo of him with the original Batmobile.

Conan and the Batmobile

Although it isn't the most conventional way to announce a highly-anticipated DVD set like this, Conan O'Brien does have somewhat of a history with the legendary franchise. He lent his voice to talk show host David Endocrine in the animated adventure Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 last year.

The original Batman series spanned 120 episodes over three seasons from 1966 to 1968, starring Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin. The series co-starred Neil Hamilton as Commissioner Gordon, Stafford Repp as Chief O'Hara, Yvonne Craig as Batgirl and Alan Napier as Alfred, with notable villains such as The Joker (Cesar Romero), Catwoman (Julie Newmar), The Penguin (Burgess Meredith) and The Riddler (Frank Gorshin).

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment hasn't revealed when this boxed set will debut yet, so stay tuned for the official announcement.

    I don't believe any of us are blind to the fact that this show was super cheesy and the cast were not the best actors. That being said I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS TO COME OUT!!!! This was my favorite show as a kid (until Batman The Animated Series came out when I was 9), the reruns of the '60s series started my obsession with Batman and I would buy it just for that fact alone but as it is I still love watching the reruns when I find them on. It's campy, cheesy and full of over the top and bad acting and I love every second of it!!!
