Gloria Pink said:“We are very excited to honor the Batman 66 TV show and Burt Ward this way.
Burt created his favorite hot dog that will be on the menu starting January 9th 2018.
Last year’s release of Warner Bros animated film “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” and this year's release of Warner Bros animated sequel “Batman vs Two-Face,” makes Batman ‘66 is hotter than ever.

The BATMAN 66 exhibit features original costumes and props from the show, which have not been seen since it originally broadcast from 1966-68.
Dadigan said, “We have costumes and props that evoke one’s childhood memories of the ever-popular TV series, “Batman”. There is something for everyone - from the Batmobile and Batcycle to Burt and Adam's original costumes worn during the show’s 120 episodes run on ABC TV Network, as well as guest villains – and one of my favorites - the original Dr. Casandra costume worn by TV and film star Ida Lupino, that has never been seen publicly before.”
The extensive exhibit also features much sought after collectibles, including a the “gotta-have” children’s lunch box, action figures of every shape and size, batman and robin puppets, rare Batman Ice Cream boxes, drinking cups, board games, and many more extremely rare collectibles from 1966 too numerous to name and, in some cases, never before seen on public display.
