Holy home video release Batman! Warner Bros has announced via US, comedian/talk show host Conan O’Brien’s Twitter account , that the complete 1960s Batman TV series starring Adam West will be released this year.

It’s still not clear which formats are in the offing, though DVD, Blu-ray and digital downloads are a safe bet. Imagine how pretty it could look in HD… The announcement comes on the eve of the Dark Knight’s 75th birthday and shortly after the release of a number of ’60s series spin-offs including a DC comic and a range of action figures.

For years Batman , which ran between 1966 and 1968, has been tied up in numerous rights issues, which have prevented a home cinema release. Apparently those have all been sorted now, which means we won’t have to watch Family Guy every week to get our Adam West fix.
