The classic Batman, Robin and Catwoman are returning to the small screen with the release of “Batman: The Complete Television Series,” out on Blu-ray and DVD today.

The celebrated series, which aired on ABC from 1966 to 1968, starred Adam West as the Caped Crusader and Burt Ward as Robin — a crimefighting duo who faced off against a series of comic book villains, including Penguin, the Joker, the Riddler, Mr. Freeze and, of course, Catwoman, artfully portrayed by Julie Newmar.

Hero Complex readers get a peek at Newmar’s Catwoman in an exclusive video from the series. The clip (watch it below) features West’s Batman trapped in a room with Catwoman’s tiger Tinkerbell.

“Batman, it’s been fun, but all good things must come to an end, and the goodest ending I can think of is yours,” Catwoman taunts.

The home entertainment release is available in a variety of physical and digital configurations, the most comprehensive of which is the limited edition Blu-ray box set, which features all 120 episodes, a Hot Wheels replica Batmobile, 44 vintage replica trading cards, a book of photos form Adam West’s private archives and extensive bonus features spotlighting West, Batman memorabilia, Burt Ward’s screen test, the art and design behind the series, a roundtable with celebrity Batman fans, the Batgirl pilot and more.

The release comes after a year of anniversary celebrations for Batman, who made his DC Comics debut 75 years ago, including an anniversary edition release of Tim Burton’s “Batman,” the “Batman Eternal” weekly comics series, new animated releases and more.

Bruce Wayne is on the small screen once more in  “Gotham,” Fox’s Jim Gordon series, and Ben Affleck will don the cape and cowl in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” due in theaters in 2016.

    The character of Catwoman should have been retired. No one will ever equal Julie Newmar. I remember the preview for the next weeks episode when they said, "Next week the Catwoman!" and they showed Ertha Kitt instead of Julie Newmar. We were all crushed. There's only one Catwoman, and that is Julie Newmar.

    I know the tv series deviated in an extreme way from the comic book Batman, but none of the movies have ever rivaled it for sheer inventiveness. When I was a kid we took it seriously, but our parents would watch it as a comedy. It worked with a wacky genius on both levels. Almost 50 years later it still seems fresh.
