EPISODE 13 - When Burt Ward and I recorded this interview recently, it was the day before Adam West, Batman, passed away. Not only had Burt and Adam worked together on the Batman show, they had done many conventions and book signings together. Obviously, during our interview, we were not aware of what was about to happen. Burt gets into how he won the part of Robin, the Boy Wonder for the Batman TV series on ABC. He describes what it was like filming the show with all of the stunts and explosions. And then we get into what is his real passion today – Gentle Giants Rescue – the world’s largest big dog rescue that Burt and his wife, Tracy started 22 years ago.
